anyone know a treatment for nightsweats with Alzheimer’s disease?
Mom is 87, has moderate Alzheimer’s and has severe night sweats 2-3 times a night on most nights, no fever or infection, Doctor says not related to her meds. any ideas on cause or treatment would be appreciated.
It could be an indication of a kidney/UTI issue/infection.
There are several studies now that Lyme disease and it’s various co-infections are the suspected cause in many of Alzheimer’s patients. One of the most significant ones was the one done by Mcdonald. He tested 10 peoples brain matter from the Harvard Alzheimer’s brain bank and SEVEN were infected with Tick born diseases (Lyme disease).
Your dear Mom could have the tick born infection called Babesia as well as Lyme. Both cause night sweats with no fever.
What are some ways to help with hot flashes and night sweats? (recent surgical menopause & unable to take HRT)?
I am unable to take hormone replacement as my cancer was hormone sensitive. I am 7 weeks into surgical menopause and went straight from regular ovulation to losing my ovaries , and everything else. I am coping with the hot episodes (and am grateful to now be cancer free) but would appreciate any tips anyone could give me on how to lessen them or ease them. I can’t take any hormones, not even plant based ones. Thanks.
I agree. Check out soy based products.
