Alternatively antibiotic used to treat UTI may cause drug induced hepatitis. There is many other causes of elevated liver enzymes and sometimes a liver biopsy may be required to find the exact cause. ...Read more

Excessive sweating of the face and head. I have underactive thyroid and kidney disease. What could cause this sweating only on my face and head?

Excessive sweating of the face and head. I have underactive thyroid and kidney disease. What could cause this sweating only on my face and head?

Hormone excess?: Face and head sweating is more common in women that are taking hormones. It can be from excess sympathetic tone or from volume changes being monitored by internal pressure receptors as might be your case with renal disease. Check hormone levels and consult with your nephrologist or endocrinologist.

It is very important, however, to make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection with obstruction by a stone. Such an infection could progress rapidly and even lead to kidney damage.

BO under left armpit only. Discomfort under both. Left kidney pain comes and goes. Green urine. Sharp pain in lower left abdomen. Night sweats. What?

Green urine & sweats: This constellation of symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. I'm concerned u may have malaria and that green urine is actually broken up blood cells from the malaria parasites. Sweats and body aches can be found in malaria and this disease should be looked for. In Pakistan it is rainy season now- right? It could be other diseases too--but hope u get help as soon as possible. ...Read more

Hyperhidrosis: Sweating is the body's air-conditioning system! You could die without sweating so it's important that people sweat but the type of sweating you have is of concern only if it is induced not when you're working or exercising heavily. If you are working out and you have sweating, that is normal and should not be attempted to be shut down in any way. ...Read more

Why am I not sweating when I work out? I'll be a little damp on my lower back but won't sweat a drop from the neck up. I am drinking plenty of water.

Fit?: As you grow more fit your body will change how it sweats; it may be that you need to increase your level of activity as you've become too efficient to break a sweat at what you are doing now. There are rare cases where people are unable to sweat at all, but this is unlikely. If you are are really worried, see a dermatologist. ...Read more
