Many possibilities: Acromegaly, anxiety, malignancy, carcinoid syndrome, medications, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, menopause, parkinson’s disease, pheochromocytoma, central nervous system issues, tuberculosis and other chronic infections have all been implicated in hyperhidrosis. You need to be seen by a thorough and patient pcp.

Rephrase question: Jazzac87--i am not sure what you mean by "got glandular" because glandular is not a diagnosis.
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) could be genetic, disease, or medication induced. There are treatment for hyperhidrosis, but knowing the cause will guide better therapy. Please repost your question/description. Good luck.
