your GP thoroughly investigate her health and do some tests, including her blood pressure, as this too can impact thirst.
I have seen both low and high blood pressure promote thirst. She may need more minerals in her diet such as magnesium, potassium and/ or sodium which are obtained from eating a wide variety of foods, particularly vegetables and fruit.
Two pieces of fruit a day is adequate and five servings of vegetables. Finding out via a visit to your GP if her thirst is excessive and if a medical condition is causing this however, is essential.
