This used to happen to me before my blood sugar was controlled? How are your numbers?
I think I sweat cause I'm very fat and my heart is overworked. I'm 127/8 kgs
Omgosh I do the same thing! Have even before I was diagnosed. Its very embarrassing. I'm drenched after just cleaning the house.
I sweat just going grocery shopping! Its horrible and interferes with doing things in public.
I do too- and I'm like geesh how are y'all NOT SWEATING Lol
I thought I was the only one lol glad to know I'm not alone.
My a1c is 6- working to get 5%
Just had mine checked and its 5.9.
Sweat is an individual thing affected by a multitude of health, herititay, and climate. There is no way to pin it down to any one thing.
Two weeks ago I mowed the lawn and was drenched, it was humid out. Today I am mowing and I'm barely damp, it's not humid out either.
I have the opposite issue. Once my weight came off and the glucose level in check, I am always freezing. Even now it's 80 outside, my sons in the pool and I'm cold.
I'd loveee to say that haha
I will never have a tan cause I am always in a hoodie! Most nights I have to double up the comforters. Lol
Me too, I sweat when I'm sleeping, interrupts my sleep and it drives me crazy.
Gidget same here
It makes for a miserable night.
Gidget sure does doesn't it
Between menopause and diabetes, the combo is definitely challenging.
Gidget I'm past menopause so I don't have that excuse
I wish I could say that too!
Yes, my face and so embarrassing.
Yess! Like, I CAN NEVER FIX MY HAIR OR WEAR MAKE UP IN THE SUMMER.
Yes, I've kinda given up on make-up in the summer. Everyone else's faces are so pretty with make up and dry! Lol
I'm both. I'm either sweating when no one else is or I'm freezing when everyone is comfortable. I think mine is hormonal due to my age. But it seems like I'm colder more often now that my blood glucose is getting under control.
I feel your pain
Y'all I'm not even kidding MY GLASSES EVEN FOG UP!
Metformin will make you sweat
I never knew that
I take 1000mg 2x a Lajuana
I didn't use to sweat until I started on it my Dr. Said it does that
Wow so thats why I sweat.
Oh geesh. Well wish I knew that. But I have to take meds.
my head sweats buckets.
Since stopping Metformin, I don't sweat as much. I took 2000 mg per Lajuana and I sweated buckets. I still sweat now that I've been off of it, but not nearly as much.
I'm a Cleveland sports fan so during the games I sweat a ton!
I'm not testing my bs, but a great reason for me to start is that when I eat, I believe I can FEEL a bs increase plus I break out in a mild sweat. Never in my life have I sweated unless, like, mowing or at the gym! My A1c is 6, working towards 5.

Stephnie huh? No! It's a smile with sweat on my face
I can definitely feel a spike as well as when I first started I would have symptoms of low and shake n sweat even with it being 140/150
My starting a1c was an 8
dortha I wasn't sure hehe
We both have the same a1c ! Go us!
I do sometimes at night.
Had no idea Metformin could do that.
No I feel the cold. 80 outside and I still need a cardie or a hoodie
Omy. I need to have no clothes lol
Hildegarde totally the opposite funny right
Sweaty Beatris here too. Drives me crazy.
Ive always sweat, even thin, fat, menopausal, night and Lajuana , even before diabetes
I did not no metformin could do that. I sweat buckets
You just described me to a T. Very little activity an I turn beat red and temples forehead and back of neck and head are soaked.
I am on Metformin, but I always sweated more than others even when I was young, thin and non-diabetic. My daughter does too, so I think there is a heredity component for us. Still, it has been worse the last few years for me, so maybe the metformin is making it worse.
I sweat a lot when I exercise. but I guess that's to be expected.
I like sweating. I'm used to it. It's a good excuse to have another shower which I love
Yes! Sweating a lot and thought it was pre-menopause. Since my diagnosis, sweating has dissipated somewhat from what it was. Now I'm dealing with a lot of skin issues in sensitive areas, boils and such. Ick! Help!
Boils are the worst. Keeping my BS down seems to help. Also I rub down my boil-prone areas with rubbing alcohol (or hand sanitizer) after showering. If I get a boil, taking burdock capsules helps it heal faster.
Astrid what is burdock capsules?
Burdock is an herb that is good for skin infections. You can get it at the health food store or on Amazon.
I'm just the opposite , I was freezing when I started Metformin ,actually had to put my hands under very warm water to warm them up to check my bs , it was 99 degrees a few days ago & I was not sweating , I was hot , but not sweating , I also run & walk , even after running , I sweat a little , not much , wondering if I'm abnormal?
Not on any meds and I am cold all the time. Only time I haven't been lately was a weekend in Arizona and it was in the 100's! Lol
We LIVE in AZ and my hubby is normally chilly. I am usually warm!
I sweat tons but I drink tons of water too
I also work outside so I'm in the heat all Lajuana
I don't, but I am told that my father did. He died when I was 2. Complications of this disease.
I sweat when my level is high
I sweat more when my Vitamin D level is low.
I pretty much don't sweat, except my scalp, unless it's really hot and humid. I carry a small water spray bottle to cool off.
I'm the same way I can wring my hair in to the sink. There will be 1/2 cup I hate it
Yep me too. Looks like I just got out of the shower but I really just got done with cleaning the kitchen
Yup it even happens in the winter
Same here. I had all my menopausal symptoms under control with tablets. Then I was diagnosed with T2 and started on metformin and now im soaking wet my hair is drenched even after doing rhe smallest thing like cooking or shopping. Im going to speak to my gp about it and try and come off metformin.
That's the way I am I'm on metformin and insalin
I sweat when my bs is high
If I go low or really high.
I sweat regardless when my sugar is low when its high. When its hot or cold out. Lol its absolutely ridiculous!
I only sweat at night if it gets too warm in my bedroom. Most of the time, I am comfortable or cold. I still wear hoodies or a jacket inside at work.
Only being diagnosed 2 years ago. I always blamed it on hot flashes!
Yes, I sweat terribly, also.
I get the hot flashes to
Yes I sweat.
If I do anything remotely physical I'm drenched and all night long I am too. I don't take any medication. Just had complete blood work and everything is fine, A1C 5.3 been LCHF for 2 years now.
Yes - for years - hate it!
Yeah I think so. I think it gives people hot flashes. My mom and grandma were really bad about it. I haven't been fully diagnosed with type 2 yet only gestational. So I think mine is just from being pregnant.
Be careful mine started as gestational
I'm not on medication and I sweat badly, but just my head!
I sweat terriablely even as a kid, have to drink tons of water to keep hydrated and be able to go to the bathroom. I passed this lovely trate(?) on to my son and his daughter. Frustrating!
Yep I just sweat from my head. Its so embarrassing
Maybe buy one of those cooling towels that you wet and hang around your neck, it helps.
I have one and would use it if I worked in a factory or something but not really ideal when going shopping or anywhere out in public. For me anyway.
Since I was at the age of menopause I thought I had the worst case ever. Full blown sweat and the feeling of wanting to pass out. I was diagnosed end of May and put on Metformin 2000mg. I do still have a small meltdown but nothing like I did.
I use to sweat alot! .off all my meds but 2 in a year. and ecsesive sweats has stopped!
I think perscription meds can cause in some of us!
Awesome! That's my goal and I agree with you in that.
