Hi--does he have any other medical conditions and has his doctor checked for causes for the sweating?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no he has not been to see his doctor about this

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Irene. Yes, this could be related to his pancreas in the sense that he may have diabetes or suffer from hypoglycemia, but it could also be an overactive thyroid, or even a cardiac problem so he needs to let his doctor know and get both blood work and a cardiac evaluation

he recently had fasting bloods done at the well man clinic at his doctors nothing has been said about a problem if I can perhaps explain the sweats are really bad and now have to sometimes change his sheets

He needs a glucose tolerance test then to look for hypoglycemia but again he needs to have this thyroid function checked as well as his heart
