Bronchiectasis under control, profuse sweating on walking short distances. Cause?

I am a 58 year old reasonably fit male, I am 5ft 10 inches and weigh 13 stone go to the gym twice a week doing both weights and cardio. My problem is that when I walk a relatively short distance I sweat a lot, I do have bronchiectasis , but it is very well controlled. it is not the end of the world but quite embarrasing especially when I get to work and my shirt is wet

Profuse sweating may be because of your hyperstimulant sweat glands but has nothing to do with your overall health unless you feel difficulty breathing or chest pain or something like that
