Why am I so thirsty ?

In the last few weeks my body is in a continious mode of thirst, I appreciate the weather has turned warmer and I do a physical job on the building but I've never been like this before.

The only thing I can think of is that I've never been 16 stone in summertime before. How much of a difference does putting on weight (from 11 stone to 16 stone) have to the amount of liquids you have to drink ?

    I'd get myself to Boots and get a blood sugar test done. You might as well rule out diabetes.... I test myself every few months

    it makes you alot more thirsty, personally wouldnt worry about the diabetes issue so early on though.

    ive come from 140kg in weight mate and i can tell you, you will drink more when you are heavier. but it gets better again when you go down in weight, my advice, lose weight.lol

    Don't panic, but it can be a warning sign so eliminate it early

    Im wondering.....I had a blood test and urine test at the docs a few months ago. It was like a general thing, there were loads of readings up on the computer.

    Would any indicators of diabetes have shown up in these results? All that was off key, was some amino acid in my urine ( prob because of creatine or protein).

    I dont have any of the symtoms of diabetes, I go to the toilet quite a bit but I consiously drink alot of water because of my protein intake.

    Damn internet gets me so paranoid

    well your body is going through a huge change, you added alot more weight, so in response to your question, your body is how much % water, again? 80%. thats right. Also, you work outside, its warmer, and finally something you must have overlooked but because I know you are bulking up, and most people don't eat strict diet food when bulking, I'm guessing your sodium intake isn't that low. have you looked at that? There are many variables but get tested like the others suggested.

    Also i'm not from the UK but i'm guessing 1 stone = 14 pounds right? In that case you went from 11 stone to 16 stone? That about 70 pounds man. And of course the amount of liquid you will need is going to be much much higher with a 70 pound weight gain. I think you should slow down with that kind of weight gain. I'd be worried about other things.
