I know it is summer time, but I feel I am drinking a lot of water, extra amount, I feel thirsty all the time even if my stomach has no space but thirst doesn't end. What could it be? Is it harmful? Like 10-12 ltrs water per day.

Dear lybrate-user, So you realise that you are drinking more water than usual. There is a possibility that you can have diabetes. Kindly get fasting blood sugar postprandial blood sugar and HB a1c done. Is there any history of diabetes in your family from father's or mother's side. What is your height you can follow up with me with private consultation with the reports thanks.
