Customer Question
Cold sweats in summer...
Cold sweats in summer sometimes while inside air conditioned places
I am a 34 year old man who is 6'4' and weighs 342lbs and is on a diet. Two years ago I experienced cold sweats in the summer while buying my first home (very stressful). Blood work and thyroid were ok. Got a nuclear heart scan MUGA came back at 49% LVEF original nuclear at 43%. Had two echocardiograms LVEF at 59% and 63%. Also had some type of echo test involving bubbles to see if they crossed between sides of heart, they did not. Dr. stated nuclear scan have higher margin of error especially with big guys. I am ok no risk for surgery, healthy heart, treadmill test normal too as is EKG. No chest or left arm pain. BP during stressful week with work this week hit 149/105 now back to normal 135/85. I exercise regularly and did so today and worked in the yard in 95 degree heat. Blood work horomone and testosterone tests normal, physical exam normal. Last summer some had 5 cold sweat incidents today had one. Could this be stress, exhaustion, because of weight, it only occurs on hot days. Is it weight, any suggestions?
I am not diabetic, but my blood sugar sometimes drops into the seventies. Also I have only one kidney it is healthy per nuclear scan and blood tests. From ER visits over the years from sports all x-rays andhead CT and sinus CT normal. Thanks.

Hello,

Sorry for your sufferings.

There can be a few causes of cold sweating.

Though heart disease can be a concerning cause but as heart related investigations are clear, so other causes can be the factor.

Among other causes heat exhaustion is a common factor as it occurs in the summer weather.

In overweight, you can feel hotter than other normal weight person.

Other cause can be from stress, exhaustion.

If it is excessive, you can consult doctor for medication to reduce sweating to check whether they helps.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
