Low iron. Some people will sit and eat ice all day long. Your body doesn't have enough iron in it so you get a water/ice craving. This is also something that must me checked by your doctor and treated by him.

u culd b diabetic....do you have to pee all the time....u shuld get a second opinion...doctors aren't always right

Beautiful Disaster
The iron in your body could be low. Sometimes you get cravings for water or ice when its low. I know that I do. You should really have it tested.

Do you do a lot of phisical activities ? It could be because of your age and how active you are. You could be going through a growth spirt.

you properly haven't got enough nutrients in your body try an drink plenty of water and avoid alcoholic drinks and fizzy drinks like coke

have you exercised much before? and when you exercised, did you eat protein bars, or protein drinks?

if you suddenly and break the routine of consuming protein, then you might drink and go to the toilet alot.

well thats my theory, because the same happened to my brother, and we are quite not sure why, but he did suddenly stop going to the gym and trying hard..

hope it helps.. lol

You should really see a doctor. You could have a hydration problem.

Talk to your doctor, he's the only one that can get to the bottom of this and he'll need to get more info and take some tests.

Don't waste your time asking here. If you don't have diabetes, then we can't really help you.


Are you sweating excessively?

It can be several problems, and you need to go back to the doctors.

Around the age os 11 - 15, you tend to develop a better amount of sweating, so you can cool your body off, that little kids just can sweat as much. It is just a change that you will deal with, not really related to today's problem.

You might just be totally dehydrated, in that case drink up to 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water. Or if you are 120 pounds, then you can drink up to 60 ounces of water daily. 8 ounce glasses, that is about 8 per day, split up throughout the day. If you are drinking 3 - 12 ounce bottles of water, that is 36 ounces, or about 2/3 of your daily needs.

Yes you could also have a urinary tract infection, it depends on if it hurts to pee. If you are not peeing often throughout the day, that is an indication that you are dehydrated.

Good Luck

There are other problems that can cause increased thirst. If you have no other symptoms besides being thirsty (and going to the bathroom more) and your blood sugar has been tested and is normal, your doctor should investigate other possible causes.

Through rare, an example of a condition that causes increased thirst is diabetes insipidus. This is NOT related to blood sugar in any way despite the name. It is a hormone deficiency involving the petuitary gland. I am sure there are other conditions out there that would also cause these symptoms, so please go see a doctor, no one here can diagnose you.

Go to the doctor, people on Yahoo answers won't be able to answer this.

The only person who can tell you what is wrong is a doctor after he has taken a full history from you and completed any test he needed done and completed a physical exam go and see one as soon as possible if you are worried, people on this site can only guess what is wrong with you and with the limited information given it would be hard to come up with a diagnosis and a miracle if it was right. go see a doctor.
