Hypoglycemia Sign #2: Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating is a common sign of hypoglycemia and perhaps one of the first to occur. It begins without any warning, regardless of the body’s temperature. Excessive sweating can occur in cold or hot weather because the autonomic nervous system, which is part of the central nervous system that governs the skin, is short of glucose.

Most common areas affected by excessive sweating are the back of the neck and the hairline. In an otherwise healthy person, excessive sweating is more likely to occur in cases of mild low blood sugar, when the glucose levels drop to about 70 mg/dl. In diabetic patients, however, excessive sweating may become noticeable at a much lower blood sugar level.
