Sugar makes me sweat below my eyes
Hi Doc, when I eat too much sugar. It makes me sweat right below my eyes. I don't think it's allergies because it happens to me with all kinds of very sugary foods, not just candy. Please advise on what it could be.

Dear JustMe
some peoole are just more sensitive to refined sugar - try and avoid to take sugar on an empty stomach. If you want to spoil yourself, take something sweet after a full meal. In some people taking in refined sugar causes a high spike in insulin, which then causes a quick drop in blood sugar, triggering sweating.
