    Hi all

    i have a very dry pallet at night which wants me dash to the kitchen to grab a glass of water , this not only interrupts my sleeping pattern leaving my very tied in the day time.

    Does anybody have any good food tips that can keep the pallet calm during the night so i dont have to get up for drink

    Hi webboy I see no one has answered your question yet so I'll have a go. This could be a number of things so it is probably best to see your doctor and ask his/her advice.

    Do you test your blood glucose (bg) levels? Running high bg levels can cause the symptoms you describe there are also some drugs that can cause similar symptoms but without knowing if you are on any medication it is not possible to comment on this. There will also be lots of other things that I am unaware of, so do see your doctor :D

    As Sid says elevated and prolonged blood glucose can cause a dry mouth but this could be a number of other conditions too, I suggest you see your gp and discuss.

    I suffer a dry mouth too, I keep a bottle of water on my bedside table, but also I sometimes put vapour rub under my nose to keep it unblocked to encourage me to breathe through my nose. I find breathing through my mouth dries it out quicker!
