Hello, Anon!

Thank you for posting.

Night sweats can be caused by low levels of testosterone, which is normal as men age. But it can also be caused by other conditions such as:

anxiety
blood cancers, like lymphoma
adrenal fatigue
hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid
infections, including HIV/AIDS
prostate cancer
certain medications (or a change in medication)

If you’re experiencing them, make an appointment with your doctor. They can help diagnose the cause of your symptoms and recommend a treatment plan.

best,

Helena
