Water: Increased thirst for water out of proportion to your baseline could be due to simple dehydration, or more serious would be diabetes mellitus or diabetes insipidus. Polydipsia is the term used in medicine to describe the symptom. It is important to get blood and urine tests to determine if one of those conditions is present so treatment can get started as soon as possible.
