Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Sweating usually happens due to low blood sugar. It seems that your father's dose for insulin may be high at night. You may check the blood sugar levels at night time, when he is sweating. After confirming that the blood sugars dip during night time fasting, we can make some changes in his diet too. Thus I think that he may need a correction of doses. You will need to consult his doctor about it. Hope it helps. Let me know if you have any doubts. Dr Vaishalee
