Diagnosis and Treatment

If you have frequent or severe night sweats, it's important to talk to your doctor. They'll review your medical history and medications and may order lab tests to check for infections, hormone imbalances or other possible causes. Evaluation from specialists at Vitality Hormone Clinic can also help determine if your night sweats relate to a treatable hormone disorder.

Once the underlying reason is identified, your doctor can recommend appropriate treatment options. These may include adjusting medications, hormone therapy, medications to reduce sweating, or treatment for an infection or other health condition. Lifestyle changes like stress management, avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bedtime, using moisture-wicking sleepwear and keeping your bedroom at a cool temperature can also help reduce night sweats.
