Got any of these symptoms?

Blurred vision
Cuts or sores that take a long time to heal
Itching skin or yeast infections
Excessive thirst
Dry mouth
Frequent urination
Leg pain
Loss of weight
Weakness or fatigue

Drinking more and weeing more is only two symptoms. If other than that you feel well....?

No, I don't really have any of the other symptoms apart from itching. This morning I think I probably was over reacting but I was quite worried last night Thanks

Have you stopped breastfeeding? If you have it might be that you're still drinking breastfeeding amounts of fluid but not using it in milk? It's probably a good thing tbh - hardly anybody actually drinks the amount we actually should.

My MIL has type II diabetes and she describes having a raging thirst.

My dad used to drink pints and pints of water and squash one after the other. I spent most of my teenage life fetching him drinks. Once he was diagnosed he drank next to nothing. The difference was astounding. I think you'd know if you were drinking loads more.

It is a raging thirst you get. You can just gulp pints and pints and still feel thirsty (before diagnosis and treatment).

But - best to get it checked out.
