At the beginning of this month, I noticed I started urinating more frequently. Then until now, I'm pretty much going every hour on the hour. My urine is very pale to clear, and I urinate a good amount each time. I do drink a lot of liquids, usually 2 or 3 cups right after I urinate, plus what ever else I drink during the hour. I often rotate soda with water, I know soda does play a small part in the frequency. Though, I used to drink mainly sodas, but I never urinated like this before.
This last week, I've developed a very dry mouth going to sleep and waking up.
I did some research and this sounds like diabetes, but dry mouth (forgot the medical term) can play a part, also kidney/bladder problems could too.
Having just found out in June that I'm Type II, I'll share with you some of the things that were going on with me, of course I didn't attribute any of them to diabetes, found out when I went for my annual physical. I had an extremely dry mouth, very "cottony" and drank lots of water. This led to many trips to the bathroom. At the same time I began to have vision issues, distorted and hard to read etc. I also became very fatigued and would be sleeping early in the evening, or at least nodding off by 4:30 or 5:00 in the afternoon. I've since learned that all of those things are symptoms of the disease. Now, just 5 months later things are going well. I'd see a doc just to make sure that you do or don't have diabetes...the key is to find out early and make the necessary changes for your health.
