Additional Details
Thanks for all your answers already but these are just a few more details!
I already drink about 6 glasses of water and i rarely drink fizzy drinks except carbonated water!
I'm not on any medication at the moment either.

That is one of the classic signs of undiagnosed diabetes. I recommend you visit the doctor.

could be diabetes

Diabetes? Thirsty all the time.
If your lips are sticky you need to drink a lot of water

could be diabetes. excessive salt intake will also cause you to be thirsty and if you drink alot of sugary drinks then you will likely crave water.

BOW WOW!!!!!

Dink Dashaun
Your blood sugar is running high, check your ketones. Don't let yourself go into ketoacidosis. If you let it run too high you can have some major issues. Drink water and stay away from sugar.

It's a symptom of diabetes -really!

Ali W.
Your just dehydrated.
It is summer.. And, If you live in warmer climate.
Your gonna be really thirsty.
Just continue to drink water..It will help and it is good for you.

your not drinking

It's nothing bad, it just means that you're not getting enough water as your supposed to. You have to drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. Happens to everyone.

bouchon d'élite
too much salty snacks

Well there is diff. sources
1. if u exercise alot that just means that from all that excercies ur body needs lots of water since it just lost water from sweat
2.Well it could also mean ur body needs lots of water because u dont have alot and ur constantly thirsty
3. have some problems and need lots of water cuz of things that like if u get tired easdily then thats why
4. or if ur drinking like coke then u will obv. get thirsty even more

Have you had your blood sugars tested by a doctor. That's how I found out that I had diabetes. Water was my best friend. I couldn't get enough of it.

erh hum! have you been to the doctors yet??

I can see that the question is in Health > Diseases & Conditions > Diabetes tab so i think you must go to a doctor for more info.

It could be a side effect of a medicine you are taking.
You really need to give us more info, there could be just about anything going on.
It could be diabetes, but I think it could also mean too many salty sodium foods.
But honestly, a dry mouth does not neccessarily mean diabetes.
Have water frequently, but also take note of anything you send in your mouth.

Dehydration. Drink more more morem oremo remo rmeo rmeor meo rmeormeorme

Probably too much sodium in your diet.

Also, make sure that you're not trying to quench your thirst with sodas or gatoraide or anything like that.

The only thing you should be drinking when you're thirsty is water.

Have you has a change in diet recently? If so you may have a higher salt intake, this makes you much more thirsty, hence the reason for you drinking high volumes of water.

Could also be to do with exercise? Lots of exercise means the body is losing its water through sweat and so the body has to replace that lost water. So the water you drink will not help with your thirst as it used to, as it need to aid other parts of the body that have been worked out.

If its none of these see a Doctor. It could be very serious. As you may have realised it could be signs of diabetes.

Don't worry, It's summer! It's hot outside and people DO get thirsty! Just keep on drinking! If your still worried consult a doctor. Have any more questions? Email me at alexis3212@yahoo.com I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS! Good luck!
P.S Your metabolism could be low. Take a chance and eat some good food! Also, warm water is WAY better for you then cold water. Warm water keeps your metabolism up.

i might depend on the drink your are drinking. try some water. or gatorade.

pepto g
you might have a problem with your saliva gland. maybe youre not producing enough saliva. has there beena change in your diet? also drink pleaty of water. you MUST drink at LEAST 6 cups of water a day. large cups. if that doesnt work speak to your doctor

maybe to much salty


i had this problem when i was 11 but it turns out i had a tumor surrounding my pituitary gland

if your urine is clear you are hydrated
if not you are de hydrated

I strongly recommend going to your gp/doctor

27 answers so far??? You must have a lot of contacts, questions in the diabetes section don't usually get this much attention.

Have you been having any other unusual symptoms? I always went through periods where I was really thirsty all the time, and then it would just go away on its own. But if you're feeling unusually tired (especially after eating a lot of carbs) it could be diabetes. If it doesn't go away soon then go see your doctor. They can rule out diabetes right away, it's a simple test. Don't think that you can't get diabetes because you're healthy, there are different types with different causes :)
