How can I manage excessive thirst and dryness in the mouth?

I have severe dry mouth and am very thirsty. I am drinking on average 4 bottles of water per hour. Nothing tastes good. The taste I do have is like something burned. Spending most of my time either drinking or urinating. No pain or other discomfort. Is there anything else I can do?

Hello,

If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.
We have to rule out possible causes like diabetes.
You can go for a fasting blood sugar assay to rule out diabetes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
