educator of prescription endocrinology at the Albert Einstein College of
Medicine and clinical endocrinologist in the division of endocrinology,
diabetes, and digestion at the Montefiore Health System in the Bronx, New York.
"It's truly poor control of one's glucose and an expansion in pee and
discharge of water that makes individuals [with diabetes] feel extremely
parched and builds their need to keep up water adjust."
As Dr. Bloomgarden brings up, even individuals who are
making a decent showing with regards to of controlling their diabetes can grow
