Just relax a bit first.Now see if you had been to a very humid place where in water loss from your body is higher then normal,you body gets dehydrated then there will be craving for fluids or else something that you have eaten may have cause this..Do not drink only plain water or cold drinks much.Try to take some juices and have something jello in your mouth which will take care of far as diabetes is concerned only this does not point diabetes.You should get it check again and also repeat once in year if you have history diabetes in family.

Thanks. I was in the car all day yesterday with the heat on, and Im not a big "heat" fan, so I was getting really hot in the car a lot yesterday. We also ate at IHOP yesterday morning, and the waitress sat us directly under the heat vent, which was cranked on "boil" (no joke!), I feel much better today, so thanks so much Dr. Pragnesh! :)
