Maybe "not sweating" is an asset in cold weather places/activities so that you will not get sweaty and then freeze to death from the wet clothing.

My mother said to me one day "You know, I never sweat".  She said it as a matter of fact but I was a teenager and didn't think too much about it but it always stuck in my mind.

When It was very hot in NY usually in August I remember she used to run her wrists under cold water and splash it on her neck to cool off.  But she always dressed appropriately for all seasons.  

Unfortunately, I don't know her blood type but she did live to be 92.

Quoted from Andrea AWsec
Nonnies don't smell when they sweat, probably has something to do with not having the blood type antigen in the sweat.


Andrea I wish this was true in my case.  Coffee would make me perspire terribly causing BO.

I don't know.  I think you need to sweat.  Especially if you're saying they get real hot.

In my limited experience, I know it can be an indicator of metal toxicity.  I also know it can be a sign of autonomic disruption.  Or possibly a krebs cycle distruption.  Which affects everything and could be many things causing it.

They did a neuroligical test on me at mayo that involved sweating.  And it wasn't as good as I would've liked.  But I do sweat more now than when I started having problems. Before I had problems, I used to sweat just fine.  I now mainly sweat in my pits from time to time and my whole body will sweat at night sometimes.  For a while, my armpits didn't even sweat.  But when you go from someone who works out and sweats like normal, to someone who is always cold, doesn't sweat and has huge gut issues and fatigue, it's just another indicator that something isn't right.  I suppose people may be born like this, but I have no experience with that.

I went in the sauna after my workout today.  Ten minutes, and I had no trouble sweating in there.

I am one who does not sweat as well. I mentioned in another thread that I just recently started doing the grapefruit thing before eating something naughty. I usually have an oh henry bar after my workout so I have been having the grapefruit before working out. Have I ever been sweating. I have not changed my routine at all. But at least I dont smell. At least I dont think so. I know the saying goes, a skunk never smells his own hole. lol I did not see anyone making faces.

On the show "Mystery Diagnosis" there was a case of the man who couldn't sweat.
He suffered headaches and developed a constant rash on his hands.
You can go to the Discovery website and find the forum to find out the name of the disease.

I saw on Dr Oz the other day that if you eat grapefruit or drink it before eating something you should n't that it will help to prevent much of the damage it can do to you. Grapefruit has long been known to burn fat. Just a reminder, it should not be taken around the same time you take medications or supplements as it can increase their effects.

By Mayo Clinic staff

Anhidrosis is the inability to sweat normally. While this may not sound like a serious condition, anhidrosis can be life-threatening. When you don't perspire, your body can't cool itself, which can lead to overheating and sometimes to heatstroke — a potentially fatal condition.

Anhidrosis — sometimes called hypohidrosis — can be difficult to diagnose. Mild anhidrosis often goes unrecognized, and dozens of factors can cause the condition, including skin trauma and certain diseases and medications.

Quoted from Ribbit
I assume it's tied in with the low body temp that goes along with low thyroid.  If you sweat at a certain temperature, it seems reasonable that someone whose temp is 97* would take longer to get to the sweaty point than someone whose temp is nearly 99*.  That is, if we all sweat at a particular temperature (which actually I'd be surprised if that was the case), but the question still stands.


I thought I was the only wierd one not sweating. I do Zumba at least three times a week and barely break a sweat even though my heart is pounding. My temp stays between 96.7 ande 97.1 even after working out. All of my thyroid tests come back 'normal'. Go figure.

My Mom has never complained of headaches.  She's got extremely low blood pressure and when my Dad was on the rescue squad he said that they would likely pronounce her nearly dead if they took her BP.
I'm pretty sure that she's a non-secretor.

I was googling hypohidrosis in order to learn how to pronounce it.  I have not read this thread before so pardon my jumping into the middle of things.  There may be many reasons for this symptom, but one of them is fabry disease which I have.  It is a rare disease caused by a genetic enzyme deficiency.  
..
The reason I am posting is that fabry is a disease that one can have and die from w/o ever knowing that you have it.  One can have a range of symptoms, some more serious than others.  Since 2003 we have a treatment.  
  ..
These are some of the symptoms in addition to hypohidrosis:

•     Kidney problems, often requiring dialysis or transplant
•     Risk of early stroke or heart attack
•     Chest pain
•     High blood pressure
•     Heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy
•     Mitral valve prolapse or insufficiency
•     Frequent bowel movements after eating
•     Diarrhea
•     Joint or back pain
•     Ringing in the ears ( tinnitus ) or dizziness ( vertigo )
•     Chronic bronchitis or shortness of breath
•     Osteoporosis
•     Delayed puberty or delayed growth
•     Changes in the eyes (corneal opacities, cataracts )
One can have none or only some of the symptoms.  A diagnosis can be obtained through a blood test done at Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC.  
  ..
Do a search for YouTube and fabry and learn more.

I don’t sweat during exercise.  It has to be very hot and humid outside for me to sweat a little.  Sometimes I sweat after drinking green tea.  I don’t get headaches unless the pressure outside changes.  Occasionally when I do sweat not under the above conditions, I know something is wrong.  I have low body temperature.

liz, glad you updated this. i have a lot of those. i am also going through some things where i am having problems keeping up with getting rid of ammonia. it would take a lot to get any sweat out of me as i don't sweat and can go like a week without needing a shower. makes me realize i need to bite the bullet and buy that infrared sauna as soon as possible. love this forum.

i am under some good care and dropping metals. the sauna should help with that as well.

thanks for sharing about your mom, Sharon.

FYI: barely sweating and low body temperature are both symptoms of (possibly subclinical) hypothyroidism.

Thanks for the welcome, Lola.
.
I don't think one size fits all, but if only one person who doesn't sweat normally can be diagnosed and get help, I am happy.  That was the first symptom I noticed before getting the many other fabry symptoms.  I do not believe that everyone who has this symptom has fabry.  
.
I do not know my blood type and when I asked my doc she said she didn't either.  When is it necessary to check?  
.
Peace and love.

I sweat like crazy. It is nothing unusual for me to lose two pounds working out in the yard for a couple of hours. I have seen huge areas of salt on my clothes - especially just above and below my waist. I have to keep swiping my face the whole time to keep it out of my eyes. Bands drive me crazy because they make me even hotter! People talk about detoxing - I don't think I need to detox. I have been sweating like this all my life. Of course, posters who have seen me posting so much about veggie drinks in the summer can understand why I drink them so much! And watermelon is a life saver too!

If I ever stop sweating when I have been outside for a while when it is hot, I know immediately that I am getting seriously dehydrated. Right away I beat it to the house! I turn on the overhead fan, (the house is already air conditioned)I soak my skin and stick my head in the refrigerator while drinking a glass of water! Strokes don't run in my family, but I certainly don't want to be the one starting a trend if I can help it!

i dont sweat either, my naturopath doesnt seem concerned.I dont remember if i ever sweat, but i think i did when i was younger. i really noticed when i started getting hot flashes. i felt like i was on fire, would feel like i was sweating on the inside but i was perfectly dry, was really weird. when i get exerted i feel really hot, and the blood vessels on my arms and legs get ingorged, i think that is my bodies way if trying to get rid of some heat. i have been doing btd  for a little over a year, lately i have noticed at the gym that i will get a little moist around the bottom of my hairline. i also hardly ever have body odor, but occasionally i will have a very strong one even when i showered a short time before. i havent been able to associate it with anything particular. i do have thyroid issues and am taking natural thyroid daily. i also have no hair on my legs and much of my body. so glad this thread is hear, no one ive spoken with about it seems interseted and its been bothering me. thanks

I sweat, but not at the drop of a hat, like some folks do.  I go to Curves for exercise, & it takes a long time to get a sweat going, while some other women sweat immediately upon exercising.
If there is too mu air conditioning(which there usually is for my taste), I don't think I sweat at all. I don't get too hot or have headaches. When I was younger, I lived in a warmer area in the same state & remember sweating in the summer.
As for stinking, for me it was toxins. I don't stink as much as I used to. I needed to shower daily, but now I can skip it sometimes. Of course, I wash the stinky areas as I am afraid of any B.O.
As a matter of fact, I rarely notice if anyone has bad odor. Even most homeless people don't stink. There must be places to help them more than before.

My aunt, who lived to be 98, said she didn't sweat. I thought that was abnormal, but apparently she was OK with it.
I think I have low thyroid as I am chilly in the morning.  The tests show normal, but we know that they are based on cookie-cutter medicine!
