Why is it that Diabetics need to drink SO-O-O-O-O much water? Why do Diabetics get so thirsty? Is it something our bodies do because water is essential to a diabetic? I mean, why? Does it wash out impurities "more so" in a diabetic? Or is it something more important to a diabetic? I notice during the warmer months I drink water like a "real" sponge, I just need to have water, (my doctor even got mad at me for drinking so much water, said I would drown my kidneys), but as soon as the cooler months come in I do not go for the water "much", but my mouth becomes so dry and my lips peel and I do not swell as much, but even so, I suppose having a dry mouth and lips means I am "THIRSTY", I do not drink as much. Anyone???? Should I force myself to drink water equally as often during colder months as I do during warmer months???? Or is hot tea ok? Even though I am too lazy to put the cup of water in the microwave to heat it up . . . I really like it, but there is something between me and the microwave and stove, I'll cook, but boil water . . . !?!?!? I know!!!!, I had to make so many pots of coffee for my mother and stepfather as a kid, I just can't stand to boil anymore water . . . THAT'S IT!!! Ha Ha Ha.
