    I am 57 and was wondering if my hot flushes are menopausal still or something to do with my diabetes. Type 2.

    Hi, you'd need to check that with your GP, but diabetics can sometimes get hot flushes, so maybe have a search though previous forum posts to see if there's any helpful information.

    I'm in my 70s and diagnosed as type 2 at the end of 2013, and for a couple of years after diagnosis I was plagued with intermittent spells of them but didn't ever discover the the cause, though I suspect they may have been diet or glucose related.
