What is the sweat
Sweat is the product of secretion of the sweat glands of the skin. Sweat is a colorless liquid, slightly salty, which appears as tiny droplets on the skin surface, especially in certain regions (armpits, English, face, feet, hands, etc..), Where the internal body temperature rises above normal, either by foot or by intense physical exertion or following heat.

Composition of sweat
Sweat is made up of 98-99% water and other substances that come from organic metabolism:
* Sodium chloride (common salt) that makes the sweat has a salty taste
* Urea
* Uric acid
* Creatinine
* Lactic acid (as a result of muscle fatigue)
* Sulphates, lactates, etc..

Functions of sweat
The fact that sweat is composed primarily of water is due to its thermoregulatory function.

Moreover, the sweat appearing in the metabolism of substances is because the sweat has a treatment plant or excretory function.
Why do you sweat

The secretion of sweat responds primarily to a principle of organic thermoregulation, because the sweat is eliminated from our body heat, which, to keep in good condition, requires constant maintenance of their internal temperature. Obviously, the more internal heat must be removed the more amount of sweat produced.

The body has other mechanisms to regulate the temperature as: urination, breathing through diffusion of water vapor, feces, saliva, etc..

But as mentioned above, also serves as the sweat excretion of toxic substances or sewage. Thanks to sweat our body eliminates poisons that can come from outside (lead, iodine, mercury, etc..,) Or internal (urea, uric acid, lactic acid, etc.).

Relations between sweating and urination
How the kidney, urinary secretion, also has a function similar to the sweat of organic self-regulation of temperature, as well as disposal of waste from the body if she had a disease of the kidneys, the sweat would become more abundant and concentrated to compensate impaired renal function. Because this is what is being said that our skin is a third kidney.

How to produce sweat
Our nervous system is responsible for deciding whether or not to produce sweat. Our autonomic nervous system which regulates all other functions of vegetative life is the decider. First, the sympathetic system is one that favors the secretion of sweat, and the parasympathetic system is that it opposes. Both the excess heat and toxic substances stimulate the nerve center of sweat to bring about the necessary stimulus for the secretion perspiration.

Diseases of sweat
Besides the physiological sweat (normal), other pathological sweating are the result of physical disease states (tuberculosis, glandular endocrine and autonomic disorders), or whose source is moving (cold sweat of fear)
