Body Temperature ... Diabetes ... Hypothalamus?  *

A man who became a type 1 diabetic immediately after a head injury ... shared that he has difficulty with regulating body temperature.  He does not want to live in a hot climate ... as he gets too hot.  So he lives in Alaska ... in Valdez which has a moderate temperature year round.  Not too hot in summer, not too very cold in winter, either.

So was it damage to the hypothalamus that caused his diabetes and caused his body temp ailment/s???

I'm thinking that maybe so.

Those with diabetes from exposure to 2-butoxyethanol might have these concerns, too ?

I have type 2 diabetes that showed up in my 50s ... & as with many baby boomers who are coming down with diabetes, in my case, I suspect it was from my dad serving in WWII on a Navy war ship & getting the bomb fumes in his eyes ... lots of soldiers have to have had the same issues ..

I find that I wake up at night because I am too warm.  It's probably less than 70 degrees ... so why am I feeling too warm?

With this chemical exposure I do observe ... that there are unexplained fevers ... there is also abnormally low body temp, too.  Hormones high or low!  One man came down with a serious flu (Dec, 1997) and had the signs of CFIDS ... this chemical's poisoning, I'm sure.  His body temp was 95.6 consistently.  He ended dying in the same month ... leukemia of the lymph nodes, kidney failure, liver failure, heart issues.  None of these seemed to be present just 3 months prior.  I do suspect exposure to 2-butoxyethanol caused his flu and his subsequent death in the self same month.

I suspect this chemical caused the death of Pres FDR at age 62 in 1945.  Its pattern is there .. that's for sure

What regulates the pituitary gland?
 
The pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea that sits in the small, bony cavity (sella turcica) at the base of the brain.
The pituitary gland secretes hormones regulating a wide variety of bodily activities, including trophic hormones that stimulate other endocrine glands. For a while, this led scientists to call it the master gland, but now we know that it is in fact regulated by hormones released from the hypothalamus.
 
The pituitary gland is physically attached to the brain by the pituitary, or hypophyseal stalk connected with the median eminence.
 
The pituitary gland helps control the following body processes:
 
Maybe it's the Hypothalamus that regulates blood sugar, also?
 
The hypothalamus (from Greek α½`ποθαλαμος = under the thalamus; is a region of the mammalian brain located below the thalamus, forming the major portion of the ventral region of the diencephalon and functioning to regulate certain metabolic processes and other autonomic activities. The hypothalamus links the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland, also known as the "master gland," by synthesizing and secreting neurohormones, often called releasing hormones, as needed that control the secretion of hormones from the anterior pituitary gland — among them, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). The neurons that secrete GnRH are linked to the limbic system, which is primarily involved in the control of emotions and sexual activity. The hypothalamus also controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, and circadian cycles.
