Suffering from excessive sweating. I tried exercise but nothing helped, do I need to change my diet?
Hello, I am a 43-year-old male and teacher. I always suffered from excessive sweating but I realized I am sweating more than usual since last year. Particularly from the head and torso. Can the sweating be at least a partial cause of lack of energy? Excessive energy lead to a lack of energy. At end of the day, I had nothing left. This summer I've been quite sedentary much of the time. Any movement of just a few minutes duration will cause sweating (indoors with a/c) and the sweat really poors once my activity actually stops if I've exercised, gardened, etc. Is there dietary action I need to take?
@allum Hello, Excessive sweating is mainly of two types.Focal or primary-generalized or secondary.Palmo- plantar sweating is typical of the primary type and has a familial basis.Secondary could be due to anxiety state,medications,thyroid disease,tuberculosis, Hodgkin's,HIV disease,cardiac conditions and stroke. Contact your doctor as symptoms that need medical intervention are, sweating and chest pain,night sweats,weight loss.and fever.Weight loss and pounding heart may indicate hyperthyroidism.
Here’s a list of healthy sweat-reducing foods-
- Water- Drinking water to reduce sweating is probably a no-brainer.
- Eat water-dense fruits and vegetables like Apples, Grapes, Watermelon, Oranges, Strawberries, Pineapples, Peaches, Eggplant, Red cabbage, and Bell peppers
- Calcium is another mineral that regulates body temperature and helps suppress sweating.
- Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, boosting metabolism and digestion and preventing surges in body temperature and sweat levels.
- Bananas, and green tea.
