Dear madam

Hot flashes in diabetes might be due to various reasons like
1. Hypothyroidism
2. Hypocalcemia
3. Vitamin D3 deficiency
4. Oxidative stress
5. Polycystic ovarian syndrome

I advice you to get thyroid profile and rule out hypothyroidism..

Advice to take a dose of vitamin d3 and calcium to relieve hot flushes. Some times estrogen deficiency causes hot flushes.
