Hyperhidrosis occurs equally often in men and women.

There seems to be a hereditary predisposition, but the mode of transmission of the gene is not known.

When we say hyperhidrosis, we mean the large production of sweat by sweat glands. It is a pathological condition and is mainly found in the armpits, palms, soles.

Primary hyperhidrosis is called the increased activity of the sympathetic nervous plexus with quite large sweat production.

Secondary hyperhidrosis is the result of some pathological condition that is usually due to either endocrine gland disorders or excessive syndromes.

A good medical history as well as a series of tests will help in the differential diagnosis of primary-secondary hyperhidrosis.

The diagnosis of hyperhidrosis is carried out in the BioMediGen diagnostic centers by two methods.
