8 unexpected reasons you’re always thirsty
1 of 8
Your diet has too much salt in it
Salt pulls water out of cells and forces the body to conserve as much water as possible, which is why you urinate less when you eat too much salt. The water-deprived cells send a chemical message to the brain asking for more water, and you start to feel excessive thirst. Cut down on your salt intake and make sure you’re drinking enough water.
