:confused: I need to know what is preventing me from being thirsty?! It is completely gone! I often times go ALL Day without a single glass of water. But,I will have 2 mugs of coffee before 10AM each morning. After that the very thought of drinking is GONE!

Needless to say this is a real worrisome thing.
And who do I see about this?

And who do I see about this?LittleotterMaybe your sodium intake is very high? Do you have a lot of Salty foods. If so, that may be the case.

  • :)Well, I'll be 57 soon, and as far as I know I am not consuming much sodium. But, I could be wrong about the latter since I have not been eating right. Just don't pay that much attention these days. Been too distracted with health issues, testing and diagnoses.:confused:

  • I've been researching thirstlessness and found one article by a homeopathic doctor.Are you cold,and is your appetite decreased?If so, then you have the symptom complex described.The treatment was with Calcarea carbonica,which I'd never heard of,but it might be worth a try since nothing else is showing up.
