Sign #2: Dry Mouth

The saliva in our mouth has various important functions. It helps us to soften our food prior to us swallowing it, making it an important part of the digestive process. Saliva also helps to keep bacteria at bay, maintaining oral hygiene and preventing infections. Your mouth should be naturally wet, and you may be ill if it is not.

Diabetics have an increased level of circulating glucose in their blood, this fact may cause them to become dehydrated from time to time. One common sign of dehydration is a dry mouth. If you are experiencing this symptom, it is important to seek medical attention for proper diagnosis.
