I was wondering if anyone knew if dehydration is a symptom of Lyme Disease? I suffer from dehydration every few weeks and have these episodes of constant urination. Does anyone here have that symptom? If not Lyme, we are thinking the mold exposure or allergy. Any of you get dehydrated from time to time?? Does the Lyme cause it? I am not on any meds. Thanks  D

Hey Dowa!

As you know, I have this pretty bad too.  I was reading Dr. Sherr's website (www.thehumansideofllyme) and one of her articles says its very common for lyme patients to have low ADH, which is the hormone that helps keep water in your system.   There are a lot of articles on the site and I don't recall exactly which one it was.

 

Sorry!  confused

Sorry Dowa,

 

Here it is:  www.thehumansideoflyme.net  (Sorry!)

I did have my ADH tested and it was abnormally low.  Not enough to be considered a serious medical condition, but abnormal enough that the doctors didn't know what to make of it.  I tried to take a medication for it, but I couldn't tolerate the medication because my Lyme would flair up when I took it.

I got diabetes with Lyme Disease, frequent urination is a symtom of diabetes, It is very simple to check, try to borrow a glucose monitor or maybe your pharmacy can give you one for free and test your number one hour after a high carb meal, once I took care of my diabets by going low carb and metformin 1/2 my lyme disease was gone, the horrible fatigue was gone

Hi Dowa,

I have a dear friend that suffers with those symptoms. She has lyme, coninfections, and also had mold exposure. She was tested and has low potassium and low ADH (antidiuretic hormone). The drug used for low ADH she was not able to take/tolerate. She is prescribed oral potassium and also potassium in her IV solution. Is is a constant struggle for her and a serious problem. Please stay on top of the problem with your llmd. Best wishes.

I have hypoglycemia from chronic lyme, in fact, that was the first symptoms I had. I also get dehydrated to a dangerous level every few months and have to go get IVs. I can't find anywhere that'll give me Ivs right now in a pinch because my LLMD is out of state. I might go to a drip bar asap. lyme certainly can cause hypoglycemia or diabetes like symptoms among hypertension and celiac and everything else.

I've had my diabetes checked and still feel constantly dehydrated. I found that drinking more water than I think I need has helped. The general rule for healthy people is half your body weight in ounces. For me: I'm 120 pounds, so that's 60 ounces of water a day. It hasn't been cutting it, so I've gone up to 80 and I feel better.
