I’m ALWAYS thirsty but not diagnosed with diabetes?

Basically, that’s my problem. I’m ALWAYS thirsty.
It doesn’t really bother me, other than the fact that I go through every liquid in the house like it’s nothing. I don’t know why though.
I know it’s a symptom of diabetes, but I’ve been tested for that already and I’m not diabetic. I’ve been like this since I was a kid. Seriously, it freaks me out because everyone will be on their first glass of water, milk, juice, etc. and I will easily be on my 5th or 6th. Seriously, I don’t know why I’m always so thirsty! Any ideas?

Could this be diabetes?

memyselfand I asked:

I had random stick tests on a meter after eating large amounts of pasta or some kind of sugar. read 300. I usually never eat this much. I have been on psych meds for 10 years and off for 2. I gained alot of weight from them but since getting off I lost 30 + pounds – trying to eat healthier but hard cause im on ssi- eating more salads and using natural meds. told dr about this and he gave me panel- cholesterol high, A1C normal range for normal person, bp and everything else normal I sometimes urinate a lot but not at night.
I am not excessively hungry or thirsty except before my period. Drs test wit A1c was a 12 hr fast
was on most antidepressants but dr took me off. I use natural meds for depresion and other things.
also had a minor procedure done for some thing unrelated. incision was 5cm deep and it 1 1/2 weeks to heal.

Borderline diabetic ?

My husband was told years ago that he is borderline diabetic. He isn’t on meds; he just has to watch his diet and eat something sweet every day or two to keep his sugar levels up. (I’ve never seen his sugar get too high, it just gets too low sometimes.)
He has been having some other problems the past few months, and now the dr is saying it might be diabetes-related, and he has to go get it checked and probably start taking meds. Would that be type 1 or type 2? Will he have to go on insulin or pills, or adjust his diet? Just looking for opinions or info from someone in a similar situation. my husband is 6-3, and weighs @ 180 right now. He was up to 190 until he got sick a few weeks ago, and he lost 20-25 lbs in a matter of 5-6 days. (salmonella infection) Thats what threw everything into a spin… or at least what made him start paying attn to his body better. he still isnt having high sugar, and doesnt have low sugar very often, maybe once a month or so.
he is having some stomach/intestinal problems that the dr thinks is diabetes related. the other problems— loose stools for over a year, acid reflux… dr did upper GI scope, said his stomach was red, took biopsy… said food is staying in his stomach too long, put him on reglan. in addition to prilosec and levsin/sl he’s already on… GI specialist thinks all this is diabetes-related
