Sweating With High Sugar?

The other day I was at my doctors office for a lecture about diet and exercise. While I was there, I started sweating like mad. My doc said my sugar must be low. I said it was high that is how my body reacts. He had the nurse test me and sure enough 197 . Am I the only weird one who sweats during highs? I've even checked some internet sites and they all said sweating is a sign of low glucose.
What kind of symptoms do you folks have?

Re: Sweating With High Sugar?

Welcome to the world of "weirdness"....... Both my sister-in-law and myself seem to get flushed and sweat when our sugar is up a bit. If my sugar is low, then I will get a bit light headed, very pale and might break out in a COLD sweat and get shaky. Everyone is different and I guess you know your own body.

When you come to the end of your rope..tie a knot and hang on!

Re: Sweating With High Sugar?

Last week I awoke around 4 am. My pajamas and sheets were soaked and I felt like my heart was facing. I freaked out and checked my blood sugar and it was 190. That was the first time that happened to me and it was scary.

No your not alone. My husband has the exact same thing.
The only other symptom that bothers him are his eyes. He is on Metformin for High sugar levels like yourself.

Re: Sweating With High Sugar?

I sweat with a high sugar level as well... A warm sweat..about an hour to an hour and half after I eat I get this sweat too.. I think it is when the BG reaches its maximum before it comes back down..

When I have a low, it is a different sweat... Cold sweat....

My eyes bother me with high BS as well.. Kinda blurry and just don't seem to focus as well.. Although I have them tested regularly and all is good...
