Although it may not be obvious, the sweat glands on the skin produce perspiration. By far, over 90% of body heat is produced by this mechanism. Perspiration can be removed from the body through evaporation or if too much liquid builds up to cause discomfort these sweat glands are stimulated to release moisture through exhalation. The ability to regulate this process allows for higher levels of activity without overheating but also enables people who experience high levels of sweating due to illness (such as diabetes) or medication (such as antiperspirants) to reduce their overall production and thus reduce discomfort.
