What is Hyperhidrosis?

Statistics show 2 of every 5 Canadians report that sweating is an issue for them. If your sweating concerns are influencing your everyday choices, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis (HH), a medical condition that causes needless sweating.

Sweating protects our body from overheating, serving as a natural coolant. Sweat glands are activated by nerves that respond to a multitude of stimuli. These stimuli include messages from the brain indicating changes in the environment ( ie.temperature), emotions, hormes and physical activity.

Individuals suffering with hyperhidrosis have sweat glands that tend to overreact to stimuli, therefore producing more sweat than is required to cool the body.
