Hi Fran and Brandi,
Im a type II and I used to suffer from horrendous night sweats. HOWEVER, it was ONLY after I started taking insulin that this happended. I couldn't have been my blood sugar reading because I had been living with high BS for some time and that never caused the night sweats. The minute I wound up in the hospital from an infection and they gave me insulin, BINGO..the nightsweats started. When I got home and my Endo guy put me on Lantus, I knew it was the cause as I could take a shot in the morning and feel the sweats start soon after.
Now Im off the insulin and onto different meds and the night sweats are gone completely. I don't know if either of you are on insulin, and I sure wouldn't recommend giving up your insulin to stop the night sweats, but I offer up the insulin as a probable cause!
