I am very familiar with high blood glucose causing an unusual thirst (and lots of trips to the loo) but lately I’ve been working really hard on my BG control – dropping my average glucose by about half over the past couple of months – and I’m experiencing MORE thirst at an average BG of 124 mg/dl than I did when my average was over 250.
I feel like I can’t drink enough water, especially on work days. Maybe the ventilation at my new job is desiccating me, like one of those food dryers? Am I turning into a Jean-flavored prune? Eeek.
I drank about nine cups of water between 4 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and by the time I got back to my car, I felt like I hadn’t had any water all day.
It’s very odd.
