Hello family, My question is for a female friend. she has terrible night time sweating anytime her BS is below 100. Her sweating is so bad she soaks the bed from head to toe. I thought she was experiencing LOW BS however, 90-100 BS seems to be normal. Any suggestion for me to pass on to her. Any responce that you may have is welcome. Thanks and LIVE

I believe I sweat a lot when I am in serious highs that are stubborn —very very very stubborn to come down, then my body says " Hey!!!! I need to come down off this plane!!!!" When I am low, I don't sweat at all…in fact, I feel kind of cold, and I feel like hell. I wonder if she is possibly coming down from a high—as in going from high to low, then by the time she's low, she's breaking sweats—I'm not sure…good luck!!!!!—-ANNE

I sweat too when my numbers are low in the night, usually only when my numbers are in the 50 - 60 range… Could it be hot flashes coming on with menopause? I'm only 35 (shhhh, don't tell anyone…) and I have hot flashes and mood swings all the time due to pre-menopause. Also, has she ever had her thyroid checked? I think intolerances to hot and cold could be symptoms of a thyroid problem. She should most definately talk to her doctor about it though.

I will let her know of what you said. She is 60 so I think she has been thru menopause. Thanks and… LIVE
