    Any time you have a question about your diabetes (or any other health question) you should really put in a call to  your doctor's office.

    One thing that struck me about your question, though, was that you said you were up four times at night.   A sign of dehydration is when you don't urinate.

    With regard to keeping hydrated:  Diabetics shouldn't wait until they're thirsty to drink.  If you wait until you're thirsty you've waited too long.  Here's a link to additional information:

    I am also a diabetic. The fact you are so thirsty means your sugar levels are up. Are you testing your levels on a regular bases?
    Getting up 4 time a night would be normal if you are drinking a lot of water, but you need to call your doctor.

    try pressing your thumb on the top of your foot, if the impression remains you are not dehydrated, if it doesn't you are.  Still and all Kidney disease is a big factor in diabetics. Call your doctor, make an appointment and make sure you test your sugar. Being thirsty is not a good sign.

    diabetes mellitus is widely recognized as the commonest cause of polyuria and polydipsia, i.e. increased urination and increased thirst respectively.

    however diabetes inspidus should be ruled out too.

    make sure ur monitoring ur sugar levels and taking proper medication

    ur not dehydrated-- ur body would make no/less urine to save water, if u were dehydrated

    It's normal if you having nocturia because you drank a lot of water.

    But beware with your blood sugar count,usually if you still  feel so thirsty after drank a lot of water that most probally mean your blood sugar is high,so better you check your blood sugar regularly with your doctor and if i can suggest that you do a self blood glucose monitoring at home so that you know your blood sugar much better!

    If you want to get rehydrated ,make sure your blood sugar is in a normal range and continue drinking plenty of clear fluids!
