Peeing more and being thirsty more often
If you didn’t know this yet, the average person usually pees between four and seven times in 24 hours. Well, people who have diabetes go a lot more. In normal circumstances, your body reabsorbs glucose that travels through your kidneys.
But when diabetes is pushing your blood sugar up, your kidneys might not be able to bring it all back in. All this causes the body to create more urine, which takes fluids.
Ultimately, this results in you going more often to the bathroom. You might even pee out more. And because you go so often to the bathroom, you might get very thirsty.
