Why Do I Have Night Sweats?
Hi, I’m Dr. Maura McGill, and I’m an expert in nature hormone treatments.
Today, I want to answer questions about night sweats. Night sweats come from mainly and importantly menopausal flushing at night. A lot of women notice the flashes more at night, even if it is only the estrogen imbalance that causes it, or the oestrogen lack that causes it. They notice it at night because the ambient temperature of the room drops away and the contrast between the flushing and the room makes it feel a great deal worse, so that is one of the major causes.
Night sweats is a signal or symptoms of menopause. There is also an important and not very well known reason for night sweats that has to do with carbohydrate metabolism.
If you have a meal in the evening that is, say, pasta, and then it’s a hot night so you have a little bit of ice cream, or you have a piece of cake or a biscuit, and you have a couple of glasses of wine, and if you don’t have an adequate protein load, then what happens is that the carbohydrates go surging into the blood stream, your blood sugar goes up, the insulin says, “No, no, no”, pulls the blood sugar down in a big rush, leaving you with trembling as it is falling.
If you tremble and sweat as it is falling, that will occur about three hours after your meal. If you had that pasta and biscuit meal at about 7 o’clock, by the time you are in bed at about 10 or 11, you will be sweating. I always investigate primarily the estrogen level and secondarily the carbohydrate metabolism.
