    Excessive Sweating

    I lave been living in FL for 4 years. For the past 6 months to a year, I have experienced unusually high episodes of sweating. This morning, the new man in my life made a comment about it. I have been past menopause for a good 10 years. Can you help me?

    RE: Excessive Sweating

    The human body will take action to protect itself. A good example of this is how it deals with high blood sugar. When cells become insensitive to insulin, destructively high levels of glucose can accumulate in the blood stream.
    To lower glucose to safer levels, the body will remove excess blood sugar through pee and sweat. Body odor from uncontrolled diabetes is strong because of the type of bacteria flora most attracted to high levels of sugar on skin.

    I can't help you but you can help, yourself. Consume less sugar and processed carbohydrates. Drink lots of water, only. Get more rest. Exercise, daily. In other words, take better care of yourself.

    Yes! I’ll try to help you. This is unlikely to be hot flashes and night sweats because you said you’ve been past menopause for a good 10 years. , I’d definitely make an appointment with your doctor, especially given the episodes of sweating are new for the past one year, and significant enough that someone else has noticed. In the meantime, keep a diary of when you sweat and if it is associated with other symptoms like flushing, headaches, breathing problems, belly pain, diarrhea or itching. Also, keep track of potential triggers like food, medicine, exercise or stress. With this information, your doctor will be able to start an evaluation and then hopefully help you get this problem resolved. Let us know what happens.
