Default Sweating??

I have had what I consider abnormal sweating for a few years now. It comes on when I do most moderate activity and sometimes while I am eating. I don't know for sure if I have diabetes or am even pre-diabetic, but my BS this morning after fasting for 10 hours was 271 and 235 on a retest. Does any of this correlate?

See a doctor - soon.

Those figures are significantly above the threshold for diabetes.

Make sure you get tested for GAD autoimmune antibodies & c-peptide . . . your fasting numbers are FAR FAR too high. Pre-diabetes does not exist, in my opinion. You either are or you aren't.

And btw, welcome aboard, John.

Yes, you have diabetes.

Yes, I understand that I probably have diabetes. I'm cut my carbs as we speak. Increasing my fat is a bit counter intuitive for me, but I am considering it. It is in direct conflict with other information I have received regarding my recommended diet at this stage anyway. Deliberately eating more fat is understandably contravertial. That being said, my original question was about a correlation between excessive sweating and diabetes. Does anyone know of one?

Sweating can be one of the symptoms if you're having a low - blood sugar dropping below what it usually runs.

But I'm not letting you off the hook on fats. The propaganda we've been fed for the last 50+ years was a lie from the get-go and it is still a lie. Counterintuitive has nothing to do with it - we were brainwashed by some sleazy scientists and politicians, and now are paying the piper with epidemics of diabetes and obesity.

The entire sordid story is found here - Ending the War on Fat.

Ian,

I live in rural France. Each summer I cut logs for winter fuel. Before my diagnosis in 2010, a one hour session resulted in a grey, ashen, sweat soaked dishrag barely capable of putting the saw away when finished.

Now, I cut at about twice the speed and finish by sweeping the yard of sawdust and packing the cut logs away.

So, yes, excessive sweating after even mild exercise could well be another indicator of diabetes.

Welcome!

I tend to sweat at odd times, like when I'm concentrating on something and not even doing physical activity. For instance, send me to the store for something where I don't even know what aisle it's in so I have to do a lot of scanning the shelves... I'll sweat. Your physical should root out any other causes.

Yes, diabetes causes sweating . . . if you have the disease long enough and long enough . . . how do I say this, you stop sweating, but that is more of a diabetic complication. Yes, it is controversial . . . but I do it anyway and I felt so much better for it. Munching on some bacon as we speak.
