Hi, In generally I get thirsty a lot and I do drink lots of water but I'm still always thirsty. My skin is so dry and the more I moisture the more I don't see any relief. My hair is also the same it's so dry and any product I use for moisture it doesn't help at all it always stays dry and frizzy. My hair is very thin and flat though. What could any of these mean? Is their something I should do? Anything I use or the more drink water it doesn't absorb me at all. I don't know what more I should do. If you know anything about this please let me know.

Thank You,

Thanks If i jus mention to my dermatologist he just tells me what moisturizer to get, I want to know what tests there are to be aware about to make him to test me on it? I do know my thyroglobulin is really high, could it be the cause of it? I am hypothyroid person and I'm still waiting on hearing what more to do. You use coconut oil on your hair? Does it really help to moisturize?

Hi Melissa

There are many reasons for chronic thirst. One is diabetes, others include medications a person is taking, their diet (if it's filled with spicy or hot-type foods), excessive sweating or other conditions.

Many people suffer from very dry hair and skin. I'm one of them and I soak my hair for an hour in pure coconut oil (not from a salon, just pure 100% coconut oil from a grocery store with no other ingredients and shampoo really well after it) and I also moisturize deeply, every single day, from top to bottom, with a good moisturizer (I use Lubriderm, it's great and non-greasy). I never miss  day - if I do, my skin dries so much, it's really uncomfortable.

Your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist for your skin and run some tests for excessive thirst. He can explain to you what kinds of tests may be needed and why.
