Why Does Hypoglycemia Cause Sweating?

The cause of hypoglycemia sweating is an underlying metabolic problem, which can be diabetes or a liver disorder. Sweating from low blood sugar occurs because the body must burn energy from its own cells to keep up with building glucose levels. In some cases, this leads to cell breakdown and release of proteins into the bloodstream that trigger sweating.

When should I seek medical attention?

If you sweat while your blood sugar level is normal but you don’t have other symptoms such as abdominal pain, blurred vision or seizures then it’s likely nothing serious is going on. However if you’re having frequent episodes where you feel weak or shaky then visit a doctor immediately. If left untreated these conditions may lead to more severe complications such as diabetic coma (low blood sugar) and loss of consciousness (hypoglycemic unawareness).
