hypothyroid and always thirsty

Is there a common relation with the thyroid and being thirsty? I know that the thyroid is your second brain. Also it controls you blood sugar which obviously makes your thirsty.

Is this symptom common in hypothyroidism? Does anybody have tips in controling this? It's getting to better now that my thyroid is stablizing but it's still a nusance. Now that I live in a big city I have to carry my heavy water bottle in my bag everywhere I go.

Re: hypothyroid and always thirsty

I haven't heard of thirst like that being a thyroid issue. I could be wrong. But I am hypothyroid and haven't had that be something I personally have gone through. You might want to check with your doctor and see if he or she wants to test for other things. Good luck!

Re: hypothyroid and always thirsty

I have thirst issues. I am hypothyroid, Hashimoto's, Graves, and adrenal insufficient. the thirst issue was more pronounced when my adrenal's killed over and I began to have issues keepimg my electrolytes balanced. Fluid retention and mineral imbalance is well known to cause thirst issues. When was the last time you had a full chemical spec run. Have you been retaining fluid of late.. about the feet and ankles? The fluid retention always seems to accompany my thirst issues.

Re: hypothyroid and always thirsty

It is for me. I am hypo and always drinking water. My blood sugar is fine to date-would have your calcium level check also-high calcium can make you thirsty.

TV - have you had your blood sugar checked? check your fasting blood sugar. mine was messed up before my meds starting kicking in but it is better now.

Re: hypothyroid and always thirsty

the few times that my fasting blood sugar was tested it was normal. i think it was about 80. But Ihave suspected it to be low on occasion
