Have dry mouth. Increased intake of water, frequent urination in night. Worry?

Over the past 6 months I have noticed I am increasingly getting a very dry mouth through the night and despite waking up for a drink through the night I still have one in the morning. Also going to the toilet more often through the night but guessing this might be because I keep waking up to drink more due to my mouth. Is it anything to worry about?

Hello, Thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
We are here at your service to solve your's problem.
In your query you have not mentioned your's age that is much important.
Take an example if you are >50 yrs , frequent passing of urine, dryness of mouth all are indicator of diabetes. 2nd reason may be increase in the size of prostate ( male gland), but in this situation you have to wake 7-8 times in the night for urination but every time amount of urine is less i.e more time s but amount of urine is less.
2ND Example if your's age is 20-30 yrs the cause of frequent passing of urine may be due to anxiety neurosis.
In first condition you have to be examined by a doctor, he will tell you every thing about your query, if that , not possible than go to a lab and a blood and urine sample will give you the exact situation whether you have diabetes or not. If diabetes that is not a good condition, so please take an immediate decision. Good luck. Dr. Het
