I have a thirst problem, and the nurse said not to drink more than 100-120 ounce!

Question: I have a thirst problem, and the nurse said not to drink more than 100-120 ounces of water a day.?
What if I'm still thirsty? (It's either the beginning of diabetes or the beginning of menopause - my doctor is working to find out.) In the meantime, I've had the thirst for 6 weeks, and when I don't drink enough water, I'm dizzy and nauseous. What happens if I drink more than 120 ounces of water a day? Does that make me sick too? Is there anything else I can drink that will be ok?


Try using some ice chips to alleviate your thirst, question, if you are urinating at the same rate you are drinking, then likely it is related to an untreated diabetic condition, however it is we will leave that to our physician to diagnose, not YA. You can also try some of the isotonic sport drinks,many find those to be thirst quenching, of course get the non-sugar containing ones, also, begin watching your caloric intake, and any carbs, or sugar intake, as these will sometimes cause a diabetic to be more thirsty.
good luck, and up to 150 ounces of water/liquids a day is not a problem, as long as you are not retaining any of the liquid.

If you drink too much water, it can mess up the sodium content in your body, which can cause serious health problems. Have you tried sucking on ice cubes? It really helps!

just drink your water and add same lemon
