I have heard that can be a sign of CFRD. But I don't have CFRD so, I don't have any personal experience.

BUT I have also been getting night sweats lately, so I will be looking to see if there are other causes.

Is there anything that can confirm that?
My husband sweats a TON while he sleeps. It doesn't bother all the time but it can get gross but apparently he has been doing that since he was little. I would like to learn more about this as to what can cause it and how to help it.

Are you on prednisone? Andrew gets terrible night sweats on prednisone. Switching his dose to the morning seems to help quite a bit.

Amy had written one time that treating her reflux took care of her night sweats. We tried that for Josh but it didn't work for him. We're still trying.

no prednisone, no cfrd, the only change has been coming off of pain meds from 2 weeks ago from my pneumothorax and chest tube i had....i am wondering if like under armor clothing would help the discomfort of feeling soaked with normal clothing....i am not athletic and i am a walmart shopper so just wondering if that type of clothing would help my comfort level at night

Hi, I have been having night sweats for years. I can change clothing three to four times in a night. I notice that it comes during a time of infection and sometimes anxiety. I wipe the water off in sheets. I wear cotton clothing which absorbs the water. I also leave two sets of clothing by the bed. Hope this helps....Keep hydrated.

I wonder if it maybe has something to do with our salt levels? Sounds interesting that so many people have the symptoms. I was always told get your sugars checked, but maybe thats not always the problem. Hmmmmm.

I also restarted vitamins recently and was wondering if that had some effect. I did not take vitamins for a very long time because I could not find them anywhere and didn't get anything at CF Services. Now I do and I can get my vitamins...so since I have started, I have been sweating at night, but not as bad as some of you are describing.

Has anyone noticed vitamins and night sweats going hand in hand?
