I’ve been having issues with excessive thirst, hunger, & urination for going on two years now. It isn’t diabetes, glucose always comes back good.

One thing I’ve noticed in the last week since increasing my intake of whey protein is a marked increase in thirst in the subsequent hours after ingestion. It isn’t related to an increase in overall protein intake, but rather something I have just come to notice due to consuming more throughout the day. I’ve gone from about 20-60g / day to 80-120g / day.
Couple days ago I loaded up about 110g before noon, and had the worst thirst I’ve had in weeks.
The thirst is nothing new, it’s something I’ve been dealing with for quite a while now. I’m constantly drinking water, have a glass sitting in almost every room of my house, and a mini-fridge at work filled with nothing but water. Nothing takes care of the thirst (or the hunger or urination for that matter; the increase in whey was an attempt to combat the hunger).
My question is am I the only one this happens to? I searched on the internet for a couple hours before posting as not to waste peoples time but couldn’t find anything related.
