(excessive sweating)
italiano deutsch Ivo Tarfusser, MD
Upd.: 1999
Sweating is a natural phaenomenon necessary for the regulation of an individual's body-temperature. The secretion of sweat is mediated by a portion of our vegetative nervous system (the Sympathetic Nervous System ). In some people (approximately 1% of the population), this system is working at a very high activity level, far higher than needed to keep a constant temperature. This condition is referred to as hyperhidrosis.

Sweat. Perspiration. To some, it's a minor annoyance. But for those who suffer from excessive sweating, it's a serious consideration that can affect daily life, relationships and careers.
Many people, even some doctors, don't understand the problem and dismiss the symptoms as merely troublesome. Yet, the condition, called hyperhidrosis, can cause a person's hands, face, feet, underarms or torso to sweat uncontrollably.
Those who are plagued with hyperhidrosis are always reluctant in social and business settings, never knowing when they will experience the embarrassment of profuse sweating. People who suffer with hyperhidrosis are reluctant to share a hug, to dance, to play cards, to get close. Even something as simple as a handshake can be embarrassing.
"Hyperhidrosis is an insidious condition often misunderstood not only by family members and friends, but also by physicians. The excessive sweating of hyperhidrosis manifests itself in a variety of conditions, both physical and emotional. It is my goal to further understanding of the disorder as well as to provide a treatment that is suited to the patient's degree of suffering."
If you suffer with hyperhidrosis, it's time to change your life.

Description By: Keith Naunheim, MD
What is hyperhidrosis?
What is the sympathetic nervous system?

What causes the sympathetic system to malfunction?

What are the symptoms?
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by excessive sweating that occurs in up to 1% of the population. The excessive sweating can occur in the hands (palmar hyperhidrosis), in the armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis), or in the feet (plantar hyperhidrosis). Although nobody understands the exact cause of this excessive sweating in specific individuals, it is known that the sweating is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.
The human body possesses two different sets of nerves: the somatic nervous system and the autonomic system. The somatic nervous system is the system of voluntary nerves that give us sensation (pain, heat, and touch) as well as the control of our muscles that allow us to move the different portions of our body at will. The autonomic nervous system, on the other hand, is the involuntary nervous system. Many of our bodily functions occur without conscious control such as the rate at which we breathe, the beating of our heart, and the production of sweat, which is important for regulating body temperature. The autonomic nervous system is made up of two components: the sympathetic and the parasympathetic systems. It is the sympathetic nervous system that controls the sweating throughout our bodies.

Hyperhidrosis, Excessive Sweating
The medical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis. The problem may be limited to a few problem areas or may be all over. The armpits and the palms are the areas most often troublesome. Excessive sweating starts after puberty. It may be present to some degree all the time, but is at it's worst when under stress such as during exams, interviews or dating. Excess sweating that affects areas other than the armpits and palms may a sign of serious problems. Systemic, neurological and anxiety conditions need to be ruled out; however most cases have no underlying cause.
Most over-the-counter antiperspirants are not strong enough to do the job. The best product is available by prescription (Drysol). It is somewhat irritating and will stain clothing. It is applied at bedtime to completely dry skin. It is washed off in the morning shower. Do not use a regular deodorant afterwards. Repeat the treatment nightly until the sweating is under control. If it does not work after one or two weeks, begin covering the affected area with a square of "saran wrap" overnight. After it begins to work, use once or twice weekly to maintain the effect, and use a regular deodorant on the other days. The medication is less effective on the thick skin of the palms and soles.
If these treatments don't work well enough there are alternatives. Botox injections, a treatment now popular for wrinkles, will stop sweating for 6 or 8 months, but is expensive. On the palms, it may cause mild, temporary weakness of the grip. Oral Robinul pills are very safe and will decrease sweating, but they have annoying, mild side effects. Good results are often obtained by driving the Robinul into the skin directly with a Drionic electrophoretic machine.

16. The Center For Hyperhidrosis: Stop Sweaty Hands And Facial Blushing
Treating patients suffering from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and facial blushing in the New York area.
Hyperhidrosis is a relatively common problem that affects many people. Although sweating is a normal bodily function, in some people it is unnecessarily excessive. Typically, people with hyperhidrosis have excessive sweating of their hands and sometimes in other parts of their body as well. In its most severe form, hyperhidrosis can cause crippling loss of self esteem.
At the Center for Hyperhidrosis at Columbia University Medical Center, located in New York City, we have developed a multidisciplinary approach to the management of hyperhidrosis. Surgery very effectively eliminates hyperhidrosis, but there may be some unavoidable side effects. We believe that non-surgical methods to control hyperhidrosis should be tried before considering surgery. For that reason, our team includes not only Board Certified Thoracic Surgeons who specialize in minimally invasive thoracic surgery, but also Board Certified Dermatologists who are regarded amongst the best doctors in New York. Employing a team approach that offers both medical and surgical treatments, we believe all patients can obtain relief from symptoms.
The Center for Hyperhidrosis at Columbia University Medical Center has been instrumental in modifying the surgical techniques for hyperhidrosis to minimize side effects and improve the results of surgical therapy. In cooperation with other centers where surgery for hyperhidrosis is performed, we continue to analyze surgical outcomes to further improve the results of surgery. Dr. Gorenstein not only performs surgery for hyperhidrosis, but is well recognized as a leader in the field of Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery, and is the director of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center.

Hyperhidrosis, The facts:
Throughout the average day, our bodies naturally perspire as a way to regulate heat. In some people, natural perspiration is excessive in the face and hands. This condition is known as hyperhidrosis and is defined as the production of perspiration beyond what is necessary to cool the body.
Other Valuable Information: The process of sweating is controlled by the Sympathetic Nervous System. This involuntary nervous system maintains the five million or so sweat glands throughout the body. In fact, about two-thirds of our body's sweat glands are located in the hands alone. The answer to the problem of hyperhidrosis lies within these nerves. Doctors have found that "supercharged" nerves cause excessive sweating. With regard to the cause of hyperhidrosis, a definite answer cannot be given. There seems to be a genetic correlation with hyperhidrosis. In Dr.Reisfeld's studies, he found that 40% of his patients have some sort of genetic pattern. Another study showed an even higher percentage of genetic origin to this problem. Dr. Reisfeld, and other researchers around the globe, are constantly making progress in the field of medicine. Historial Overview:
Over the past years, several different approaches have been taken to cure this socially and functionally embarrassing problem. Patients have tried herbal medications, lotions, and oral medications to end excessive sweating. None of those methods have proved to be of any lasting value. The surgical approach to this problem started about 60 years ago but, due to the location of the sympathetic nerve chain in the body, medical procedures at that time necessitated a very invasive surgery. The operation used to be done either through the neck, chest cavity, or through the back. Those invasive methods made it an unpopular operation for patients and the medical community at large. Since the introduction of minimally invasive surgery about 20 years ago, methods were developed to access the sympathetic nerve chain with minimally invasive surgery. Over the last 10 years, the
