  1. Diabetes. If you’re a diabetic, your body cannot effectively use insulin to metabolize glucose. As a result, your blood sugar level is easy to rise. High blood sugar carries a number of serious complications. It can also make you feel tired, hungry, or thirsty.
  2. Acute kidney failure, a condition when the kidneys suddenly fail to work. As a result, your body loses its ability to eliminate unnecessary substances (such as excess fluids, salts, or waste materials). Improper function of the kidneys can significantly affect the balance of fluid in your body.
  3. Gastroenteritis. It’s inflammation of stomach and intestinal lining caused by infection such as bacteria, virus, or parasites. Though it will usually heal without treatment, it can be very bothersome. The symptoms include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and headache. Gastroenteritis-related vomiting and diarrhea can cause dehydration if you don’t drink enough fluids throughout the day.
  4. Sickle cell disease, a group of diseases affecting hemoglobin (the molecule found in red blood cells that carry and distribute oxygen throughout the body). It can change your red blood cells into a ‘sickle’, shape.  As a result, your red blood cells will break down more quickly (premature) and you’re at high risk of having anemia, infections, or chronic pain.
  5. Sometimes abnormal thirst may also be consequence of medication side effect, aspirin poisoning, iron poisoning, and excessive heat exposure.

Treatment is necessary for any cases of stomach ulcers, including for the mild ones. If left untreated, the disease could turn into serious. Whatever the cause of your unusual thirst, it should be dealt immediately – have a medical professional evaluate you especially if the problem doesn’t relieve or lasts longer than expected!
