Unquenchable Thirst

Hi everyone, I seem to have this problem since going raw. I know that this could be linked to diabetes and I am a little concerned so I’m getting my glucose levels checked this week just in case. I drink at least 3 litres of water per day. Does anyone have experience with this issue or have any advice? Thanks in advance.

    Why the concern? That’s so good for you!!Your body is mainly made up of water – so you have to drink up to replenish it! I drink 3+ litres a day – an entire liter alone at the gym. Water is the only thing I ever drink – just can’t get enough of it! :D

  • I love water too, I agree it’s the best thing for our bodies. However, my concern is that it could be signifying a health concern or condition. What I’m saying is that no matter how much water I drink I’m still thirsty. It’s also really annoying.

  • Hello bronwyn, do you eat a lot of dehydrated food? I know I am thirsty when I have some. If you don’t, yes it is strange…

    PS: I made a recipe of yours last night, delicious, thanks.

    when my diabetes came on, I was drinking non stop. SOmetimes I’d get up 4 times or more during hte night to pee, and have to drink even more water.

    prior to the onset of the diabetes, I drank about the same ammount, except I didn’t need it at night, and I didn’t feel dehydrated all the time.

    I think you are wise to get checked out.

    are you eating a lot of sweets? As in sugary fruits? There are reports of people doing 80/10/10 having dibetic like symptoms at beyondveg.org.

  • Hello stevio,

    I searched in that site you quoted and didn’t find any scientific argument. I read only personal negative opinion of the author and vague references to vague studies; no names, no figures, let alone stats, no reference to scientists, no large scale studies. I didn’t check all the site because it is dense, I may have missed something.

    I am concerned because I follow the 80/10/10, so if you have more info could you please post them? I wouldn’t want to expose my health at risk.

    bronwyn – Have you had the tests yet? I’m curious to know what you found out.
