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?

May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
