Thirsty All The Time?



New Age reported Many diabetics are always thirsty. The reason is that glucose causes water to be extracted from the blood which is then excreted from the body in the form of urine. The loss of water from the blood leads to dehydration and feelings of thirst. Too frequent urination can be a problem because along with the excess glucose, the urine is also carrying out sodium and potassium, Diabetics often feel "run down" & tired too and don't understand exactly why. It's an insulin problem!
