Constant Thirst...symptom?
0

9 posts in this topic

Week 2 of gluten challenge and I noticed yesterday that I'ven been drinking lot more (water & caffiene free tea) the past couple days.  In the past couple years I have increased my water intake, intentionally, to 8-10 (8oz) cups a day.  Yesterday, I took in at least 16 cups. And I am still thirsty.  I haven't had "D" (usually more of a "C" girl), and don't seem to have more urine, plus, it's still yellow, not clear like one would expect after drinking 128 oz of non-caffinated beverages! (Sorry for the TMI).  Making me wonder if this is a symptom of gluten intollerance/sensitivity... Anyone experience this?

I should note, I have year allergic rhinitis (effectively treated with year round nasal steriod and nasal antihistime sprays), and the allergen counts are going up, so that could be a factor...

Caffeine is a diuretic so just try water.

If you don't have D and you stopped caffeine and you're still peeing a lot, go see a doctor for a diabetes test.

 

Peeing a lot could also be a small kidney stone passing.

 

 

Watermelon and echanacia tea made me pee a lot.

 

Good luck.

As a nurse, my spidey sense tingles whenever someone says "thirsty all the time". While the amount you report isn't greatly abnormal, it's the "still thirsty" part that draws my attention. There are a few problems that have increased thirst as a symptom and some are associated with autoimmune or celiac issues. How this fits into a big picture is to complicated for me to try to talk about in this limited forum but important enough that I suggest you report it to your doctor and let them decide if it needs to be addressed. 

I hope this helps. :)

Oh wait, sorry I misread ounces for cups. You are drinking a lot. If you somehow became dehydrated, this amount of fluid should of corrected the problem rather quickly assuming the cause isn't continuing. Certainly, please report this to your doctor. 

Best outcome: Doctor says not to worry.

Ankles aren't puffy, but my mid section sure is growing (and not in the good, I'm expecting a child, kinda way).

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
