    Hi,
    Haven't been here for a while but having scoured the internet, I still cannot find a firm answer.
    When I eat food (cooked, not raw) such as a normal plateful, I become hotter and clammy, almost like a hot flush that lasts 20 minutes immediately after eating.
    If I eat something small like an apple or a roll then I am fine. It only literally happens when I have a main meal.
    Any ideas about what is going on?

    Hi,
    You do not specify where on your body the sweating occurs.

    Have you tried searching GUSTATORY SWEATING to see if that is the cause? This is a form of autonomic neuropathy.

    Hi Catherine,
    The heat and sweating is all over the body. I don't feel ill with it, just hot and clammy.

    @Bowel hmm, a sugar burn eh. Now that would explain it. I have been going off the rails 100% these past 2 months. I even had a reading on 22.9. Needless to say, I have earmarked tomorrow as the back to the norm in my routine. I will be trying for my second child soon so need a good 3 months to get back on track.
