Omg I know the hot flashes and night sweats are awful. I'm only 28 but I was on a high dose steroid. I thought I was losing my mind but I knew it was hotflashes cuz my mother is going through menopause. So I asked my doctor why I was getting hotflashes and he told me it was from the medication I was taking at the time, and said "consider it a preview of what is to come". I almost smacked him! But it doesnt sound diabetes related. In the mean time up your vitamin b, vitamin c, magnisium and potsium. Hotflashes makes it lower in your body, thats why you should increase your intake. 50-60% people find vitamin E very helpful at 600-800 IU's a day. When hotflashes subside, take 400 IU's a day. Primrose oil- depending on the amount of primrose oil in each capsule, effective dosages vary from 2 to 8 capsules a day. Chickweed tincture (25 to 40 drops) once or twice a day reduces the severity and frequency of hot flashes. Use all cotton sheets and natural fibers. Use 10 to 25 drops of Motherwort extract three times a day or upon awakening with a night sweat. You will notice a difference in two to four weeks. For prompt relief, use an infusion of garden sage. And always talk to your doctor if it continues to be bothersome.
