View Full Version : Excessive sweating

05-02-2011, 14:50
I apologize if this has been discussed, but I tried to search for threads around perspiration or sweating and nothing came up. I also am unsure if this is the right sub-forum for this question.

I am currently in the army as an infantrymen and deployed in Iraq. I have the desire to attend SFAS when I return to the states.

One issue that I have that others may not is I sweat excessively and easily. I am probably sitting at 18% BF right now so some of it could be due to excess adipose tissue. In 2009 before I enlisted I weighed 270lb, and I am now down to 180, by the end of my deployment I am hoping to drop to 160 or below and hope to have 8%ish BF. Hopefully that will help on some level, but I have always been a "sweater".

I does not effect my performance, I don't ever feel overheated, I drink over a gallon of water a day and I pretty strict with my diet. I just sweat a lot, when I take my IOTV off it looks like I was in a wet t-shirt contest.

My question is how would QP's view this? Is this something that could cause trouble in a future career, or am I simply worried about nothing?

Thank you for your time.

Sweating may only be a side effect or symptom..

Poor or lack of SA and failing to follow simple instructions, may be the cause..
