I am 69 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (LADA) about one year ago. I continue to have hot flashes night and day. Is this caused by the diabetes?
Hi Miss Lilly,
The best person to ask this question of is your doctor, who can look at your entire medical history and best diagnose the causes for you condition. I'm not a medical doctor, but I can tell you that some researchers have linked hot flashes in diabetics - particularly ones that come after eating - to not high blood sugar but *low* blood sugar due to inadequate insulin dosing. There may be other reasons for your hot flashes and your doctor will be able to evaluate them all.
