Neither my mother, nor my uncle (her brother) sweat.  They just get really, really hot.  They drink plenty but never sweat.
I find that a little abnormal and perhaps even harmful.  Does anyone know anything about this?  They are both a blood type B and obviously it's genetic.

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.

Treatment of anhidrosis involves addressing the underlying cause, if one can be found.

Also my mother does not sweat and stink ever and she has never been a cleanliness addict or used dedorant. She was careful not to exert herself in hot weather, to avoid an heat stroke or collapse. She is A + probably nonnie.

my mom never perspired.. she was healthy as can be, she loved the sun but never backed in it..
mom never smelled of perspiration but used some deodorant but never had to be fanatic.. she dressed light when summer..

I never saw my grandfather nor my uncle come home dripping.. I think they were just sensible.. my uncle was a band musician and they played music in the open for hours. I think he was a tea total -- for every day life they all were..

many people don't sweat.. I never did until until menopause.. It is on awful 'sickness' I don't drink more now then before..

a niece gets soaking under her suit jackets from back to front, she drinks water normally..she exercises and uses every antiperspirant and nothing helps.. she suffers much..  

if they are happy leave them all alone.. if they suffer get air-conditioning, and if their health changes have them see a doctor..

Personally I think dry brushing  is good to remove skin toxins.. and keep on eye that no one has bathroom accidents .. they are very important to address >> they can be cancer or the onset of,, so no dilly dally for that but otherwise.. never worry.. I envy them ..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

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

That's interesting, Andrea.  I thought it was toxins that made you stink.  Maybe not.

Leanne, I didn't used to sweat.  I'd get very hot but never break into a sweat.  When I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid and started taking a supplement, I started being able to sweat.  I know they say men sweat and women glisten, or whatever, but it's not true for me!  I can drench my shirt without much effort!  It's certainly more comfortable for me to be able to cool off properly now, even if not socially polite.  I've learned to dress more lightly during the summer and layer during the winter.  Because under the proper circumstances (a crowded room), even if it's cold I will sweat.  

So my guess would be thyroid for your family, but I don't know if they have any of the other symptoms.

Not sweating is not normal.. Try an infared sauna.

Interesting point being that my Aunt was just diagnosed as having her thyroid off.  My Mom and my Aunt (who I believe does sweat) have a difficult time growing hair.  The guy that my Aunt saw said that it was her thyroid.  
And then I just remembered that my Mom saw a doc a couple of years back and she had all the symptoms of something thyroid.  I'd have to look it up again.

Hmmm, thought provoking...

My mom is a B and she did not sweat until she started the BTD. After she did the diet for 3 months she finally started to sweat. When she eats out too much or doesn't eat enough beneficials, she'll stop sweating again. She can alwyas tell if she stays compliant by her sweat glands. Maybe it's more of a B issue?

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 just called my mom to talk about her sweating issue and I need to correct myself... she said it actually took her two years of doing the BTD to start sweating. Now she sweats even if she cheats a little. She rarely touches the major avoids and keeps up with most superfoods from her Swami. She described how bizarre it was to sweat for the first time and how she felt like she was missing something in her life until she could start to sweat.
Ribbit, That's interesting about the low thyroid and sweating. My mom ate tons of wheat and corn and avoids prior to BTD so all those avoids may have been interfering with her thyroids ability to produce enough hormone.

I should remember to look at that again.. I have low temp even as I am having a hot flash.. I have issues with losing weight.. but I also eat..

but a good reminder.. and yes it's not for me just decided that as I Have enough Hair.. so not for me but yes hormones and hair are on issue for sure -conntected...

Depends on how long we stay sweaty!

I'm going to go with Ribbit and say thyroid sounds likely, but just to share my own experience : I used to use antiperspirant deodorant, and it took a lot for me to work up a sweat.  I started working in an uncooled warehouse during the summer of 2008, and it bothered me that I was getting so hot but not sweating.  So I switched from antiperspirant to plain deodorant, and I started sweating more all over (not just armpits).

I don't really sweat at all. Never have. I have to be careful that I don't overheat in the summer. My half brother that is an AB has the opposite problem called Hyperhydrosis. His hands and feet are constantly dripping sweat.

Not sweating or always constantly sweating are not fun at all. If I don't cool myself down in the summer I can get heatstroke, headaches and even rashes. As I continue to follow my GTD hopefully I will start perspiring more with time.

Also being a Nonnie I don't seem to smell like body odor either. Everyone always tells me how good I smell. lol Which is good, since one of my biggest fears is ever smelling bad.


O positive baby boy.

I have a nonnie friend that does not shower everyday because you has no body odor.

As my mother Andrea, she never stinks also in Summer, but she is at a light risk of heat stroke, she must keeps cool and us some fresh water to refresh her . The opposite of my father, who must shower every day absolutely and  he must use a dedorant.

I don't have to shower every day either.  Which is a good thing, because when you've got a bunch of small children, sometimes showers just really happen.  Even with a whole lot of hair, it doesn't have to be washed but about every 2-3 days.

hey all,

I have been thinking about my inability to sweat a lot recently, and remember reading this thread a while ago.

For as long as I remember I haven't been able to sweat. This is good because I don't smell. Sounds gross, but I could weat a pair of socks for a week and it'd be ok!   However, I realised that not being able to sweat was a real problem for me, especially being an explorer who can't exercise much to build up a sufficient sweat.

I like winter most because when it's hot outside i feel so enlarged and puffy.. and my head just aches so bad. It's like the heat builds up inside but i can't get rid of it. I also feel like I put on about a stone in weight as my clothes don't fit properly.. generally i get anxious of being exposed to heat

I wondered about how to get myself sweating without exercise... and without needing to nap for 2 hours arter physical exertion...

ENTER: my portable infrared sauna (which arrived in the post a few days ago, christmas came late for me!)

I had my first 15 minute session at about 110 f, the lowest setting.  The booth wasn't really very heated before I got in, but I was apprehensive about any side effects as I was alone...

I didn't sweat one bit, just felt some strange vibrations. However, after i showered it felt like id been for a vigorous jog! then... more bedrest and jerky muscles. I also got VERY hungry, more hungry than I get after I have a shower!

yesterday i decided to try again... this time setting it to full power for 10 minutes before getting in. It's bellow freezing here in Devon so it was nice to be so enveloped in heat.

after about 10 minutes I started to sweat... very heavily... initially i thought there was something crawling on my skin, but then i realised that i was dripping the little beaded beauties! oh my, the elation of being able to get rid of something... to be able to sweat it out. I don't think I've ever sweated so much in my life.. and it was only a 20 minute session.

now i'm wondering what will happen if i continue to sweat in this way.

lola, I don't manage to have lemon on waking everyday, but try to most days. On the days I don't have it I usually eat half a grapefruit in the afternoon on an empty stomach, or I have some lemon juice mixed with apple juice and water sipped throughout the day

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.

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 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.

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!
