Question: Could pre or borderline diabetes cause night sweats?


 SCollins - Thu May 14, 2009 9:15 am

My husband is 46, recently diagnosed with pre/borderline diabetes. Very high stress job. Has had periodic night sweats off and on for about 18 years, maybe related to high stress periods. No accompanying fever. No HIV/aids. Married 26 years, 1 sexual partner, no sexual problems, 6' 3 1/2", about 15 pounds overweight, but night sweats started when he still weighed between 175 and 195 lbs. Has annual physical through work related health fair. Most recent one showed the pre/borderline diabetes. Has always had excellent health. Almost never ill. Only symptom is occasional night sweats.

User avatar Hello,In most people the cause for hyperhidrosis ie excessive sweating and night sweats is idiopathic ie cause unknown.It may relate to the delicate balance ofthe autonomic nervous system.Hypoglycaemia can cause sudden onset of sweating,but in this case it is mostly relating a general debility due to overwork.
