Hello,

 

Yes, other causes like hormonal changes from menopause, pituitary gland dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, Adrenal gland tumors, pancreatic abnormalities can also cause these hot flashes.

 

You need to see a doctor and get a complete Hormonla Profile done, also having an Ultrasoud of your Abdomen to look for any Arenal Gland mass / tumors that can cause these symptoms.

 

Kind Regards,

Dr.Joshi
