Excessive thirst, steady blood sugar readings

Please help! I was diagnosed last month with diabetes at the age of 43. I already have RA and hypothyroid (due to Graves disease). The endo prescribed Metformin (500 x 2/day). Right now I'm only taking 1 pill a day and gradually move up to two.

My sugar levels are aligned well, around 114 to 129, but I am always thirsty and have sweating episodes. And I always want my water to be ice cold. I can turn up a large glass of water in one drink (non stop).

Will the thirst problem eventually go away?
