Disabilities and Hyperhidrosis

This question came from patients who are afflicted with other illnesses such as diabetes, deafness, blindness, cerebral palsy and many others as to whether or not their condition is related to hyperhidrosis. Basically the answer is no because hyperhidrosis we know is a genetic illness. Unfortunately it adds to the medical problems that those patients already have and it makes their condition even more difficult to tolerate due to the aforementioned disabilities.

Diabetes and Hyperhidrosis

Diabetes has some correlation with nerve ending damages. We all know about some numbness in the extremities for patients with long standing diabetes when it is not well controlled. It’s somewhat different with regard to the sympathetic chain and in those cases the sympathetic chain belongs to the involuntary nervous system and there is no known evidence that diabetes can affect this part of the nervous system.
