Dehydration?: Seeing that your blood sugar seems normal, this could be dehydration. Do you drink fluids during the day? Being in the hot weather can easily dehydrate us, and we need to keep up with out fluids throughout the day. This thirst may represent your brain's hint that you're dehydrated.

Thirsty: One cause of night time dry mouth is having nasal congestion, which causes mouth breathing while sleeping. Also, be sure you avoid diuretics (medicines which induce urination) in the hours before bedtime. Lastly, "dry mouth" is sometimes a side effect of a medication.
