Not Thirsty

Recommended Posts

I don't know if i am in the right area to ask about this but i was wondering if any of you have trouble drinking water. Before all of this started happening, i would get thirsty and was a normal water drinker. Now, i have to force myself to drink water because i am very rarely thirsty, I actually forget to drink water sometimes. And by the way, i have never been a soda, juice, or milk drinker, just water and coffee, and i only have coffee in the morning.Hope someone out there has some info, i think this is really weird. Thanks

Making sure your hydrated is just something you have to do regardless if your thirsty or not.  Really can't see how being "not thirsty" is a problem.  I wouldn't give it a second thought unless you are having a myriad of symptoms that make you suspect something is wrong.

 

Good Luck.

a wise woman once told me:  once you don't lose so much water through D, you don't need as much. 

 

you also get water in foods that your body is now digesting better :)  i am not thirsty very much.  if i am, i get something to drink - i figure trust my body.  if it needs extra fluids, it's gonna let me know.

I don't drink water thru out the day either. I do think it has to do with not having D I drink tea in the Am, I don't dring water thru out the day, sometimes at night I will make myself some lemon aide , not because I am thirsty , because I like it!!

that makes sense, i was kind of worried but i feel better about it now, thanks

 

The best way to know if you get enough liquid is to look at your pee.  Pee should be very light yellow.  If not, drink some more water during the day.

Also you can put your hand on a flat surface pull the skin on top your hand up gently like a lil pinch of skin , pull it up gently and let go , if it stays up , you may be dehydrated if it goes down fast your fine :)  I actually just did that to mine and mine is staying up a bit! I may have to make myself some lemonade :)

I hope your body will learn to ask when it needs it.  I got checked for diabetes more than once because of my "extreme thirst."  I guess when a body is messed up, it can mess up any which way?  My thirst level has become more regular since gluten free is working for me.  I hope yours will too.
