I found that I was drinking TOO much water. The more I drank, the more I peed. I was going to the bathroom every 45 minutes or so.

The more I peed, the thirstier I got, so I drank more, and so on until sometimes at night my lips would crack. Drinking too much water made me, ironically, dehydrated. My doctor has now told me not to drink as much.

So, how much is too much? Depends on the person, but if you find yourself going to the bathroom extremely often or if your urine is clear almost all the time except for the first morning urination, ask your doctor if you're drinking too much.

@ Mar2a, were you having any other SX besides the excessive thirst and urination? IC your A1C is 5.7 now according to your signature line. Was it 5.7 when your were DX? You are also not on any drugs now. Have you ever been on any drugs?
