It is really impossible to say what is going on. I agree with the others and encourage a complete medical physical. Are you exercising more?? Has your environment changed?? Are you using more foods with higher sodium content?
Yes, if you cannot quench your thirst this is one of the early signs of Insulin Resistance, Pre-diabetes and diabetes....sure, it helps the body get rid of waste and toxins, but it also insures proper blood volume. Water regulates blood sugar because if your body gets low on water, everything becomes concentrated. This includes your blood sugar. When you are dehydrated, your urine gets darker, you become constipated and your blood sugars go up.
The two of the most immediate signs of diabetes are an increase in thirst and an increase in urination.
Could be dehydration too... Adults lose more than 10 cups of water in a given day, just by taking part in everyday activities, according to Mayo Clinic.com. Fail to replace that water, and your health is at stake. It hot during the summer and replacement of water is necessary especially if you sweat and are active. You can even hydrate with berries, cherries, pears, peaches, apples and high water veggies.
Maybe see a doctor to rule out Insulin Resistance, Pre-diabetes or diabetes.
My opinion? We drink a lot more than we think when we drink sugary drinks, and when we start drinking water, we struggle to consume 8 glasses a day. So we are dehydrated. As I got used to water, I started to crave it more, and now drink 10-15 glasses a day. If you are thirsty, drink more water, and yu will eventually not feel thirsty anymore.
Another factor to consider is diabetes. Thirst is a sign of that, so you may want to get that checked, but if that is not an issue, I think you will find that the problem is that you just need to drink more.

I hope someone knows the answer to this because I've been wondering for a bit. Why is it the more water I drink the more thirsty I feel?
