Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

From your description, which includes increased thirst (also called polydipsia) and an uneasy feeling and exhaustion which could be one of the symptoms of a change in blood sugar levels, more likely to be a drop in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) in which sweating, lethargy, confusion, etc. appear.

Have you checked her blood sugars lately? My advice would be to get her blood sugars checked, conduct elaborate tests for the same, and reach a conclusion with the help of a diabetic log, that would help us make a diagnosis if any.

There is nothing serious, or anything to worry about. Symptoms in human beings are indicators of something not being close to normal, this helps in controlling it.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
