Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-01-29 16:59

Profuse Sweating in Type 2 DiabetesType 2 diabetes is the most common diabetes. As the body cells are sensitive to insulin, leading to elevated high blood pressure. Common symptoms include increased urination, extreme thirsty and hunger. Profuse sweating is also usually seen in type 2 diabetes. The condition is mainly due to the following causes:

Nerve damage

Diabetes can cause profuse sweating due to autonomic nerve damage. High blood sugar can cause peripheral nerves leading to numbness/tingling. However, it also can cause damage to autonomic nerves which are responsible for sweat control, pupil control etc. Therefore, autonomic nerve damage in type 2 diabetes can cause profuse sweating. It mainly occurs after eating, at night, and other times. In this case, a tight control of blood sugar and medications for preventing further nerve damage are needed.


Profuse sweating is a common symptom of hypoglycemia in type 2 diabetes. If low blood sugar level is not corrected timely, it can cause unconsciousness and even diabetic coma. Hypoglycemia occurs from time to time to everyone with type 2 diabetes regard less how well their blood blood sugar is controlled.

To control profuse sweating in type 2 diabetes, both of these two conditions should be controlled. They can be controlled through careful control of diabetes. Hypoglycemia should be treated as soon as the patient becomes aware of it. If blood glucose level is kept at targeted level, the patients can prevent or delay nerve damage. Both hypoglycemia and automatic never damage can be dangerous, but they can be prevented if the patients can keep proper care of diabetes.
