Re: bed sweats!

Their are many reasons why people sweat at night. Caffine, smoking, diet and then other health condition's that need a doctor to investigate. I had these myself for over a year and although they went on their accord, i never really found out what caused it, but their were a few ideas that came to mind.

If it continues theh he should see his doctor and they will do an ultra sound scan, just to be on the safe side.

Re: bed sweats!

Greetings ladyjadey! My sympathies, a professional could check for things like thyroid, blood sugar, hiv etc. Of course everyone makes their own health choices in life and is in charge of their own health care. Of course if someone eats nothing but chicken and no fruits, grains, nuts or vegetables the diet is unbalanced and their will be insufficient enzymes to digest any food properly. Of course coffee can cause too much sweating also. Peace, sjb

Re: bed sweats!

I would agree with no34evr, diabetes could be one cause but as i said their are over 100 conditions that can make you sweat. As i said, i had this problem myself. Heartburt, gastic contions and even stress could cause this.

You could change his diet, do more excersie and that may help. If he smokes, stopping that would help. It really is a case of trial and error but if it continues you must see a doctor. They found a few things wrong with me that "may" have lead to the sweats, but cannot be 100% certain.

Re: bed sweats!

Greetings if the tea is one with caffeine in it instead of an herbal one that also might cause sweating. Hot and warm beverages can also cause it to some extent particularly in warmer weather. Peace, sjb

Re: bed sweats!

Greetings ladyjadey! You are welcome! As they have said however, there are many conditions that can cause sweating so if by avoiding the warm drinks coffe and teas still does not work it may be important to investigate the cause, it might be important to have a physical anyway to see if an underlying disease is not beginning from all the abuse from caffeine etc. Many of the cures however are not useful but lifestyle changes can benefit the life in my opinion. Peace sjb

Re: bed sweats!

The autonomic nervous could be the problem.

Re: bed sweats!

I meant to say autonomic nervous system.

One part we are able to control (emotions, etc) and the other part we have no control.

The autonomic nervous system controls breathing, heart pumping, other things we do not think about but they work.

The autonomic nervous system can cause the body to sweat big time and you have no control. This happened to me post shoulder surgery, my feet sweat so bad I was literally sloshing in my shoes. Orthopedic surgeon told me it was the autonomic nervous system causing the sweating and I could do nothing about it, however it might slow up or go away in about a year. It has been a year and my feet still sweat a lot but I am not sloshing in my shoes now.
