I have been thirstier than usual these last few months but since I have been on a higher protein diet with a lower carb load I just figured that that was the reason.
Drinking more was good for my diet too.
This last Monday I went for lunch with a friend and had salmon tartar (raw salmon with lemon, herbs & olive oil) and a green salad. By the end of the lunch my pouch was running pure water. I barely made it home without practically exploding.
Over the last week, on and off, it has been either normal output or running watery output (usually after eating fish, my go-to protein of choice).
I have been constantly thirsty in spite of the fact that I was drinking about 2-3 litres/day...the strange part is that even while or just after drinking 2 huge glasses of cold water, I am still thristy...it is permanent and unquenchable. I don't drink softdrinks or any alcohol. Just water.
I am eating very little, no unusual pain other than general joint pain...but I feel like I am peeing twice what I drink and that is making me even more thirsty. It is like a vicious circle.
I do not wake at night to drink or pee. I am now up to 4-5 litres of fluids and am still 'feeling dried out'.
I have lost 2 lbs in 4 days...Very unusual for me. I've booked a glucose test and general bloodwork but just curious if this has happened to anyone else?
Any other suggestions or things that should be checked out while I am at the lab?
