People with diabetes may urinate as much as 20 times a day, with a full bladder every time. When you have extra glucose in your blood, due to diabetes, your kidneys work overtime to get rid of it. As this happens, the extra glucose soaks up water everywhere in your body, causing you to urinate more often. Frequent urination causes your body to become dehydrated -- and you end up feeling very thirsty.
