I have seen in your forum various posts about sweating. Some seem to be low blood sugar, some high, some menopause, some fever. How does one tell which is which?

Dear Anonymous
The best way to determine whether the sweating is caused by disease, hormones or just an overactive sympathetic nervous system is to do some blood tests. The way you sweat also gives us an indication. Infection usually causes sweating at night, while menopause causes flushes during the day. Low or high blood sugar causes sweating when you haven't eaten for a few hours. Hyperhydrosis causes sweating when you are anxious or embarrassed.
