I'm 52, 266 pounds and 6 foot tall. Yes I am out of shape and over weight. Trying to begin to work on that. Take a couple meds for BP. I realize the meds might do it as well as some foods. Crappy diet can cause all kinds of things. But when it is real hot and humid out I stay drenched in sweat. Anyone else and what have you done or changed that has helped you. Thanks!

I'm six foot, 55 years, 205 pounds, and in fairly good shape. I sweat a lot and always have.

If you are sweating in your sleep it could be Diabetes.

Not sweating in my sleep just MORE sweat than is normal for my exertion. I see other guys around me with sweaty faces maybe arounf the neck of their shirt and underarms. My shirt is absolutely wringing wet completely!

I sweat buckets at the drop of a hat.

I stay indoors.

No. I only sweat when doing something very strenuous for long periods of time. Time to drop a bunch of weight man. Your body is trying to tell you something is wrong.
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 10:24:48 AM EST
I don't sweat much. I'm thin.

Probably is your weight. You're working on that, so you'll be able to test this theory by comparing current sweat levels with post-weight loss sweat levels.

If you're trying to get rid of pit sweat, there's a product called Maxim you can buy on Amazon that you put on before you go to bed. It will make you want to claw your armpits out after a few minutes, but if you can resist that it works like magic.

What is this? (I will google). I have never heard of this. I do not sweat a lot at all, but I do know this.

If you do sweat, not much will make you smell worse than drinking coffe.. It seems to
sweat out of the body with that nasty BO stench.

Fact (at least for me).

This mostly happens with obese people and Rubio.

Could be the meds for all I know, but the extra insulation you're carrying around isn't helping.

When I was 50 pounds over my normal weight, I did the South Beach diet and started exercising again. I took me a year, but I got rid of the extra weight and felt a lot better.
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 10:36:42 AM EST
I'm in the same boat. When I'm skinny or when I'm carrying a few extra pounds it's the same.
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 10:36:47 AM EST
I don't perspire.
I don't sweat.
I frigging leak water.
When I worked out, I carried 3 Tshirts + towels with me to keep changed into a somewhat of a dry state.

I dunno man, I am 6'2" and about 193 currently and I sweat like a whore in church.

Not saying he doesn't need to drop some weight, he does and it may well help with the sweating but some people just seem to sweat a lot.

You have diabetes! I'm not kidding . Insulin regulates your body temperature. You will run a few degrees cooler in body temp but sweat your balls off especially at night. Go get an A1C test asap.

I get that. But OP is 80 lbs heavier than you. I bet it helps. Maybe I'll just say get rid of the weight whether it stops the sweating or not.

Agreed 100%

I sweat a lot. I have ever since I was about 12.

My pits are constantly sweaty and I often sweet down my chest/stomach and back when exerting myself a little bit or in a stressful situation. I also get swamp ass a lot. My bald spot on my head will sweat when I eat spicy foods.

I'm overweight, balding, hairy like an ape, and I sweat profusely. No wonder I'm single, lol.
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 10:42:49 AM EST
I used to have the issue, sweated through everything I owned, ruined shirts in one wearing kinda sweat.....

One day I said screw it and figured I would switch to just deodorant instead of antiperspirant, figured it would save my shirts from getting destroyed with sweat rings.

It was like magic, when I quit using antiperspirant I quit sweating. Not sure what the correlation is but I never looked back.

Aluminum Chloride. You use it before sleep in the areas you sweat. It works.

Body fat %? 6'4 and 240lbs isn't what I'd call pretty good shape unless you're mostly muscle.
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 10:57:36 AM EST
I'm a fatty now, but when I was in high school and playing soccer everyday, in the best shape of my life, I sweat my balls off! Even when it got near the end of the season and it was in the forties I would still be drenched, been like that my whole life.

I do run hot too, as in my normal temperature is closer to 99.7-100 most of the time. It's just how I operate, chicks dig it though because I'm always warm.

Not always. People sweat at different rates. I sweat heavily. I remember in basic training being asked by a Colonel if I was OK during an inspection because I was soaking my BDUs while others weren't.

When I am hiking in warm weather (over 50 degrees F) I can judge my exertion by how many drops of sweat per minute drip off the brim of my cap.

Even in a cool operating room you'll find some surgeons who sweat like crazy, and some who don't.

I wouldn't be too concerned unless it represents a significant change.

I get it from dad..... I sweat a lot

I'm in shape and within my BMI but as soon as it hits the mid 70's outside, I'm dripping wet
Gold Bond powder is my friend

That's partly the reason I'm more a cold weather guy. I loathe those humid 90 degree months

Where I live humid is the norm.
I work in close proximity to equipment that is 200'F-500'F regularly and it's not uncommon to end up walking over 6 miles in a 12 hour shift.
I sweat like a horse.
In the late spring/early summer it's not uncommon to be soaking wet within an hour of being at work.
You might try to wear something like UrderArmor HeatGear (probably the loose fit shirts/underwear).
I'm using some Patagonia synthetic tee-shirts under the Nomex (which is hot in the summer and cold in the winter) and while I'm still wet, it seems to pull a lot of the moisture away from the skin.
Mainly I just embrace the suck, and drink lots of water.
I understand the Wally World carries a generic version of Under Armor gear.

My buddy used to soak shirts. He was skinny too. Started using these, no more problem http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002PQ8BQM/ref=pd_aw_sim_194_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51gLEf18gtL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL100_SR100%2C100_&refRID=1S629N1N7PN2FPKW4AMG

It was pretty crazy

I don't sweat much even when I am doing an intense workout, but the damn palms of my hands are sweaty almost the entire day at the office. I leave sweat pools on the table if my hands are resting there, my mouse is wet, keyboard can get wet, etc.

Might be caffeine/stress related I suppose.



Link Posted: 2/26/2016 11:33:30 AM EST
I only sweat alot when I have to wait in line at Golden Corral and there's a crowd around the cheese fountain. I smell the cheese, I see the melted cheese, but I can't reach the fuckin cheese, it makes me real sweaty. Almost as sweaty as I get when me and my 400lbs life partner bump uglies.

I was on blood pressure meds for a bit and they made me sweat more than I normally would.

Once I stopped taking the pills I went back to normal.

Any extra weight you have makes your body work more that = more sweat.

Hardly sweat at all now.

I am 5' 11" at 185 and 59 years old.
I consider myself to be in pretty good shape.

When I ride my bike I sweat like a pig in a butcher shop.
I always have but I don't know why.

I have read up on it and they only think I found was a vitamin D deficiency.
I am in the sun quite a bit and I drink milk upon occasion so it ain't that.

I got nothing other than this OP.
