I just went gluten-free again after a three month gluten challenge--dx'ed non-celiac gluten intolerant. I'm currently taking doxycycline, clindamycin topical gel, and prednisone (just finished that nasty little steroid today).
Starting yesterday, I've been extremely thirsty. I can't get enough water, and even when my stomach feels bloated and full from it, I want more. I had horrible nausea this morning, and lo-and-behold, I discovered prednisone can cause potassium deficiency (characterized by excessive thirst). I ran out and got a banana and a smoothie with orange juice and banana. I felt 100% better after both of those, and the unbearable thirst went away for a while. Now it's back. Is this something I should pursue more with my doctor (I see her tomorrow for unrelated reasons) to figure out if there's a nutritional deficit, something else, or nothing at all?
