Re: why am i so thirsty and have to pee all the time

Three major signs of diabetes is the 3 p's, polyuria(pee alot), polyphagia(hungry alot), and polydipsia(thirsty alot), not saying that's what it is but I'm hungry alot, and pee alot but no diagnosis diabetes soooo, it's just a suggestion.

If I were you I'd get thee to your doc right away, and get checked out for diabetes. It could be something else, but from how you describe your symptoms, it sounds very much like diabetes. In any case, your should get all relevant blood and urine tests done immediately.

Good Luck,

Extreme thirst and urinating a lot could be diabetes, are you losing a lot of weight? My uncle lost 40 pounds without trying before he finally went to the doctor who diagnosed him as having Type 2 diabetes. He doesn't use any insulin but he does check his sugars each day and takes Glucophage I think. It could also be something else entirely but it is surely worth checking out through your physician. A fasting blood test with a blood sugar over 100 is a definitive sign.
