I was on the diet for 15 months and not sure when the sweats started but my body by that time was so wiped out by the candida, thyroid, adrenals and immune system were shot. Finally found a good doc and he asked if I had night sweats and I said yes, and he said that was an adrenal issue.
He put me on low dose cortisone after testing my adrenals and the sweats stopped pretty quick. I had pretty well quit the diet by then anyway. For me personally, it just hasn't been the way for my body to heal. I eat pretty well what I want now within reason and usually allow sweets in moderation on the weekend. Trying to starve the candida really only ended up causing me more problems. You have to be real careful with the diet as it can cause thyroid issues as your body will go into hybernation mode if its not getting enough nourishment and for women hormone problems can also arise.
