Constant Thirst...symptom?

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).

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
