7. Increased Thirst
Increased thirst can signal prediabetes, especially after a meal. Your body has begun to work extremely hard to remove glucose excess from the bloodstream. This is one method that you dilute the blood and flush away unprocessed sugar through the urine. To get that water, your body often pulls it from cells around and it gets thirsty and dehydrated.
You may feel dehydration regardless of how long you drink when you are caught in this vicious cycle. However, some research suggests that being correctly hydrated every day helps prevent prediabetes and eventually diabetes type 2 from developing. Water and blood sugar regulation go hand in hand.
