Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
Frequent urination and excessive thirst are definitely prime symptoms of Diabetes mellitus.
Also you have PCOD and hypothyroidism.
These may be associated with Diabetes as a part of polyendocrinopathy.
I will advise you to get your blood sugar levels done.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and order tests for you.
You can share my opinion with him.
I hope it helps.
