Dry mouth and nocturia after drinking wine

Nowadays, I rarely drink.  when I do, I have 1-3 glasses of wine and they affect me.  I get dry mouth and urinate frequently at night.  I do not have diabetes according to my labs (A1C and BG).  Additionally, I have dry, red allergy eyes.  I believe the eye issue is caused by my allergies, although I have read about Sojrens syndrome (I am male, and have no other symptoms aside from dry eyes and mouth).

I was wondering if an of this rings a bell for the med help community or its doctors?

I am hoping that dry mouth and nighttime urination after wine aren't red flags for liver disease.  I have no other symptoms but I am concerned.

Seeing an MD in two weeks, and would love any reassurances or insights between now and then.

Hi there!

Dry eyes and mouth are unlikely to be related to liver disease, though these could be causes due to dehydration, side effect of a few medications, micronutrient deficiencies, autoimmune conditions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
