Type 2 Diabetes: Low blood sugar levels can cause you to over-sweat

Type 2 diabetes can cause excessive sweating, experts have shown.

Healthline, a medical website, claims that sweating can occur "when your blood sugar level gets too low and causes hypoglycemia".

This happens without any effects of exercise or hot weather, which usually cause sweating to help lower body temperature.

"The sweat on your skin will trigger a fight or flight response from your body," Healthline added on their website.

"Sweating is caused by excess adrenaline and norepinephrine produced by the body."

The NHS said sweating is just a symptom of low blood sugar.

Hungry, prickling lips, trembling and trembling and a fast or pounding heartbeat are further warning signs of the disease.

"Low blood sugar levels cause different symptoms for everyone," the NHS said online.

"You will learn how it makes you feel if you continue to get it, though your symptoms may change over time.

"Hypos can also occur during sleep, which can wake you up at night or cause headaches, fatigue or night sweats in the morning."

Healthline recommended seeing the doctor if someone experienced excessive sweating.

"Excessive sweating may be a symptom of something serious, it may also be an indication of nerve problems, so a visit to your doctor is the best advice."

Interruptions of daily life or night sweats are good reasons to seek medical advice.

Excessive sweating may also be a sign of heart attacks, some cancers, nervous system disorders, and some infectious diseases.

"Excessive sweating can cause anxiety in social situations if you are worried that others will notice," Healthline continued.

Blood sugar levels can be measured with a blood glucose test.

Blood tests provide an accurate record of blood sugar levels at the exact time of the test, "Dr. Cavan writes in his new book, Take Control of Type 1 Diabetes.

"In fact, checking your blood sugar levels is an essential part of controlling your diabetes."

"There are several types of blood glucose meters in the UK and they are usually available for free from diabetes clinics, and test strips are also available by prescription."

If the blood sugar level is too high, they could be lowered by eating garlic.

Low blood sugar associated with all types of diabetes could cause excessive sweating.
