Since I had my second child almost two years ago I have stuggled with thirst. I mean I drink over 24oc of water and natural juice a day, plus milk. I don't eat a lot of salty foods. Yet I often wake up with dry mouth. My lips are not chapped and everything else seems fine. I am just thirsty a lot, no matter how much I drink. If I drink a glass of gatoraid it helps for about a week then it starts agian. Could this be early warning sign of diabeties or an eletrolyte inbalance. I am going to see the doctor in Dec. just courious?

I guess I should add that I am hypoglycemic. I grave sugar when ever my blood sugar drops and have mood swings if I am not careful. I have to eat at lest 15 grams of protein a day and watch how much sugar I eat, causeI would be wearing it. And have frequent meals. As far as the peeing I recently had surgery to quite leaking so I am not sure how much is normal there. Thank you all for your great answers. I will check and see if my vitamins have Vitamin E in it, and talk to my doc when I see her next month.
