Excessive Sweating Is a Medical Condition
Sweating is normal when you’re in the hot sun, pumping iron, running through the park or playing ball. You may even sweat while giving a presentation or going on a job interview. But if you sweat excessively in a particular part of your body for no apparent reason, you may be suffering from primary hyperhidrosis. Typically, this condition affects one area:
You may have secondary hyperhidrosis, which means that your excessive sweating is caused by medication or a medical condition. If this describes you, please come in to National Wellness Group to review your treatment options. After giving you an examination and taking a medical history, your National Wellness specialist will help you choose the most promising treatment.
Your Boca Raton hyperhidrosis specialist works to determine the cause of your excessive sweating. A urine test, blood test or a sweat test may be needed. Your sweating problem may be due to an underlying medical issue. Some of the more common reasons for hyperhidrosis include: Genetic component. Excessive sweating tend to have very strong genetic component. If one or more family members have had to deal with sweating, you are more likely to be similarly affected. Obesity. Carrying excess weight forces your body to work harder, which can cause hyperhidrosis or its symptoms. If you get an infection from an injury, it can cause hyperhidrosis and to make it even worse irritates your skin, causing more sweating. Low blood sugar. You can experience temporary low blood sugar, such as when you’re hungry. High anxiety. A stressful job or feeling anxious constantly forces your body into an agitated state that often produces uncontrolled sweating. Problems with your thyroid. Your thyroid gland controls how fast or slows your metabolism runs. If it causes your body to run faster than necessary, the result may be hyperhidrosis symptoms. Drug or alcohol withdrawal. This is a very stressful time for a body since it is doing its best to detox and of course, sweating is the most natural way for a body to self-regulate. No matter what caused your hyperhidrosis, you can find effective treatment at National Wellness Group. If you’re treated for an underlying problem, the hyperhidrosis goes away as well.
