hot flsshes...

I don't know if I'm having hot flashes or what. My head sweats only when I eat. I can eat ice cream & sweat bullets. Thats the only time I sweat & its just my head. The rest of my body is usually normal or sometimes I am cold but I chalk that up yo me being a type 2 diabetic. I was in the hospital last May for 2 weeks to find out I had diastolic heart failure. I am also anemic all the time...levels are always around the 7 mark.
I am thinking of purchasing that Nutribullet thing I have seen on TV. It sounds like a good plan to put myself in better health.
If anyone has some input on why I sweat only when I eat, or if they have a nutribullet machine and would comment on it as well, I would be grateful.... thanks so much

Dear ehess,
Good question-and indeed the complicating factor here is the diabetes. And some women do get flashes related to fluctuations in blood sugar. There are also a number of non estrogen hormones that can be triggered by absorption of food-so all of these may be confusing factors,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
