I understand why I wake in the night if my blood sugars are off, but why do I wake up and I’m thirsty?


Q: I understand why I wake in the night if my blood sugars are off, but why do I wake up and I’m thirsty?
 

A: It depends on a person’s sugar tolerance level in the body. Unless you have been fluid deficient, you may want to see your doctor and make sure you are not pre-diabetic.
