Re: Medical advice needed

Excessive sweating and hands shaking are symptoms of Graves Disease. He probably needs to have an antibodies test. TSH doesn't seem right for Graves, but I think it fluctuates...

Re: Medical advice needed

Excessive sweating can be associated with pesticide/insecticides exposure, serotonin syndrome, electrolyte disbalance, brucellosis, tuberculosis, Hodgkin's disease, etc. Make a search on &lt;Hyperhidrosis&gt;, you will get a lot of information on excessive sweating.
