Excessive sweating can be a sign of many different things, but it is most commonly the result of an overactive thyroid gland. In addition to this, excessive sweating can also be caused by a number of other conditions which are listed below:
Hashimoto’s disease – Hashimoto’s is a condition that causes your immune system to attack your own thyroid gland. This results in low levels of T3 and T4 hormones being produced in the body. The excessive sweating will only occur when you have been hypothyroid for some time and will gradually get better as you start taking medication for hyperthyroidism or stop taking medication altogether. For more information on Hashimoto’s Disease please see our article here.
Hyperhidrosis – Hyperhidrosis occurs when your sweat glands become over active and produce large amounts of fluid constantly throughout the day, making it difficult to control excess moisture on both arms and legs especially during social situations such as work or school where there is greater pressure upon sweat glands from wearing tight clothing garments or working under hot temperatures without any form of heat protection available. Hyperhidrosis sufferers also often experience extreme embarrassment surrounding their bodies because they continually feel very wet all day long even though no water has left their bodies at all! However, hyperhidrosis treatment using Botox injections have shown promising results so far with patients experiencing great success reducing their symptoms almost immediately after receiving these treatments performed every 2-3 months depending upon patient response to treatment
