Drinking Water but Always Thirsty?

Many of my clients drink an adequate amount water but are always thirsty. BUT they are also constantly running to the bathroom! To many, this seems normal. Drink water = gotta pee. I used to drink at least 3 liters of water daily but was always needing to pee. I attributed it to drinking nearly a gallon of water daily but what I had not realized was that I wasn’t ABSORBING the water.

What good is it if you drink but you can’t get HYDRATIED (think moisture for skin and eye and lubricant for joints and ligaments) because you aren’t ABSORBING it. So, why isn’t the absorption taking place? There can be 2 main factors.
