Problems retaining water?

As I've grown old. I've noticed my body losing it's ability to retain moisture. Flaky dry skin, peeing out water soon after drinking water. A new slimy feeling in the back of my throat. Dry eyes in the morning

Had a test for diabetus, negative. Asked a doctor about my symptoms as an extra during during a visit for a skin infection. Got PRATFO'd.

Any of you fine folks had similar problems?

    I saw this title and thought the OP was talking about the trapped rain water problem. This is what LC has done to me. 😑

    Drink more water. Use a moisturizer. Use a humidifier at night

    I am skeptical there is one underlying mechanism to explain all your symptoms. Sure they are related by “water loss” but how would flaky skin be related to the others? Does everything go away when you drink more water?

    Did you check for diabetes mellitus or insipidus?

    Keep hydrated - you’re peeing a lot so your body needs it. Drink stuff like Gatorade or something else to keep it interesting as drinking tons of water is just going to seem like a drone.

    If your physicals check out for no diseases, then use a moisturizer and humidifier as others have suggested. Worrying about it makes it worst as you’re fixated on it and you convince yourself that something is wrong -> you feel ill -> you actually become ill -> you notice more things wrong -> vicious cycle of self fulfilling prophecies.

    Use Vaseline. Drinking more water actually flushed water outta your body. Vaseline makes a barrier for your skin.

    It could be related to your skin condition. Reduce histamine producing foods and increase probiotic foods. Supplements need a doctor's guidance.
