I just want to help him anyway i can and if there is a chance he could sweat again i want him to have thank you to whom ever answers my question.


It is quite possible that your father suffers from a condition called peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral nervous system consists of all the nerves in the body that lie outside of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves carry messages from all over the body to the central nervous system and vice versa.
Damage to the peripheral nervous system and it nerves may interfere with the transmission of these messages.

Depending on which nerves have been damaged, a person may suffer from different symptoms. The symptoms your father has are also symptoms of the peripheral neuropathy: inability to digest food easily, maintain safe levels of blood pressure, sweat normally, etc. Some patients may experience breathing difficulties and organ failure.

Now, this disorder can be either inherited or acquired. The problem is that there is no cure for inherited per. neuropathy but acquired could be treated by treating the underlying cause. Some of the possible causes are trauma to a nerve, tumors, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, alcoholism, and vascular and metabolic disorders. So, it can be caused by systemic diseases, trauma from external agents and infections damaging nerve tissue.

What your father need is a good medical examination and help. Peripheral nerves can be regenerated if the nerve cells haven’t been killed. The disease could be controlled if the underlying condition has been found and treated.
