thirsty at night

My dd (6) has started waking at night complaining of thirst. She isn't particularly thirsty through the day, doesn't appear to be urinating more and is otherwise well but should I be worried?

Maybe she's just getting a bit dehydrated in the warmer weather, but it might be worth getting her blood sugar checked at the GP - the nurse could probably do a finger prick test - to put your mind at rest? If it continues you could then see if anything else needs investigating further.
