I looked around the literature and couldn't find anything on this. But then I'm not a doc, just the mom of a type-1 diabetic. You didn't provide many details-- is your blood sugar low or high during these hot flashes? Do they occur at a particular time? Are you having trouble sleeping? Hot flashes have been linked to insomnia.
Please give us a few more details, and maybe someone out here in ForumLand will have some ideas/suggestions.
I'm 24 F and have been having random hot flashes, and they really don't seem to have anything to do with my blood sugar. My blood sugar can be perfectly normal and I still get hot flashes, to the point where I throw up. Don't know why they're here either.
How are your sugar levels? When my sugar is elevated or if I eat something with a high sugar content, I could sit in a tub of ice. Also you might ask for a thyroid panel as well. several years ago I developed graves disease. At times I felt like I could spontaneous combust. Talk to your md it might also have other hormone imbalances as well.
