Outrageous Thirst

Since around April time, I have had a really annoying thirst. I drink between 7 and 8 litres of fluid a day (probably a bit more sometimes). The doctor ran blood tests expecting diabetes to throw up, it didn't, so she asked me to do a fluid balance test for 48 hours, which I did, it seems I'm urinating pretty much what I'm drinking. She referred me to endocrinology but the wait for an appointment is ludicrous.

I wasn't convinced by the diabetes test result so I ordered a HbA1c to do at home, the results came back showing normal, so I can really rule out diabetes.

Anyone have any experience of this? I've looked on NHS website and a couple of things crop up, hyperparathyroidism and hypercalaemia. I do have a few other symptoms to match these. If I do have one of the above, what are the consequences of leaving it untreated whilst I wait for an appointment to diagnose?

Dry mouth is a symptom of Sjögren’s syndrome but not the outrageous thirst Rocky describes. I agree with Sqad.

Sjögren’s syndrome. I just looked that up. I don’t have any other symptoms except tiredness, which I think is from getting up 3 or 4 times a night for a pee.
