Re: Why am I always thirsty?
Actually, you should maybe see a doctor - they can test to make sure you aren't salt-decifient. The more water you drink, the more sodium you wash out of your body. Also you will start to really retain water, too. I was told that because of drinking too much water, which led to low sodium in my system, which made me more thirsty, also caused temporary Diabetes Insipidus. My electrolytes were incredibly out of whack. The first thing after my tests came back, but doctor told me to get some gatorade, thin it out with a little water, and start introducing a balance of water and sugar into my system to stabelize the electrolytes. If you drink too much water and don't get enough sodium, you could crave water to the point of stroke, brain damage, or even death. I have had to keep my water intake under a certain point ever since.
