increased thirst

Symptom Uncommon
Description
Conditions (20)
Drinking lots of water is usually healthy. However, the urge to drink too much may be the result of a physical or emotional disease. Excessive thirst may be a symptom of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). It can be an important clue in detecting diabetes. Excessive thirst is a fairly common symptom. It is often the reaction to fluid loss during exercise, or to eating salty foods.

What causes increased thirst at night?

Thirst at night

Diabetes
The most common cause is blockage of your nasal passages (i.e., allergies) which force you to breath through your mouth, which is a really dehydrating experience. Other causes include uncontrolled diabetes where the high sugar levels draw fluid out of your system. diuretics can do the same thing.

What are other health conditions that can caused increased thirst and urination besides diabetes?

DI

Diabetes
Diabetes insipidus prevents the kidney from holding on to water, but this is rare. A water deprivation test may be necessary to rule out if it's being considered a possible dx. Urine is always dilute in DI. However, Increased frequency of urination is not the same as increase in urine volume, leading to much urination. Some people just drink a lot of fluid out of habit and void a lot.
