Sweating, which regulates heat in the body, increases even more in the summer months and has a significant negative impact on social life. Claiming that sweating in the human body is seen in two species, Assoc. Dr. Orhan Yücel shared important information about the causes and treatments of the disease. Yücel stated that sweating in areas such as hands, feet, face and armpits, which can affect social life, should definitely be treated.
Diseases that cause sweating
Yücel said sweating can be caused by many factors and noted that some diseases are quite effective. Yücel listed the diseases that cause sweating as follows:
“Infection, thyroid, blood pressure, hormonal or diabetes diseases generally cause sweating in the body. Sweating occurs in two forms in the body. The first is the general sweating of the body. This sweating is also seen at night. The second is regional sweating. In other words, it is seen on the hands, feet, face, and armpits. This type of sweating can be treated surgically. For the solution of sweating due to diseases, the disease must first be treated. With the treatment of the disease, the sweating associated with it also disappears. In addition, sweating complaints of unknown cause can still be treated unnoticed. With the treatment we get seriously effective and lasting results.”
“It causes psychological problems”
Explaining the problems that excessive sweating can cause, Yücel said: “Excessive sweating can cause many health problems. Most importantly, however, it causes psychological problems. Someone with excessive sweating can experience loneliness and introversion. This causes the person to have very serious psychological problems. These patients adapt to this disease because they suffer from sweating problems throughout their lives.”
“Treatment may vary depending on the cause of sweating”
Explaining the treatment of the disease, Yücel said: “The treatment of the disease varies depending on the disease caused by sweating. When the hormones of a patient with high thyroid hormones are lowered, their metabolism will also decrease, and accordingly the body temperature will decrease and sweating will decrease.However, when the sugar content of diabetics is reduced, the person’s sweating will be at a normal level.Basically, if it is a disease that causes sweating, then sweating is also treated with the treatment of that disease. Regional sweating, on the other hand, can be treated surgically.
Reminding that there is no age limit for the treatments performed, Yücel said: “It was considered more appropriate to exceed puberty in the case of regional sweating complaints where surgical treatment was applied, and to apply this treatment when the patient is of age of 20. The reason for this was shown as the possibility that this could improve sweating as some patients get older. However, today’s life is very fast, living spaces have become smaller. Sweating began to burden people. Patients with sweaty hands may not want anything life becomes much more difficult for these people. Their social life and psychology are seriously affected. Now we have touch phones and computers in our lives. We are more than ever intertwined with science, writing and drawing. For this reason, we must much earlier intervention in persons with excessive sweating problems.
Water consumption warning
Yücel said that people with excessive sweating should pay attention to water consumption, Yücel said, “Otherwise, results such as deterioration of metabolism and formation of kidney stones may occur. The body has many excretory systems. Sweating is one of them. We expel the waste which we have produced in the body through perspiration.In addition, since excess water is removed from the body through sweating, a little more water may be consumed than a normal person should consume.As someone who normally consumes 2 to 2.5 liters of water drinks, sweats profusely, he can increase his daily water consumption to 3 to 3.5 liters.”
