Hormone imbalance can occur from several factors and affect each person differently. And although they are microscopic in size, hormones can cause major changes in how our body functions. Aging is a factor in hormone imbalance as well as medications and high levels of stress. What we put into our bodies can affect our hormone levels, too. When seeking medical assistance body fluids will be examined as hormone abnormalities can be detected through blood, saliva, and urine tests.
Hormone Imbalance is different for men and women.
Symptoms for men include fatigue, low sex drive, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, changes in mood and irritability. If you experience brain fog, anxiousness, and stress you likely also have elevated blood sugar levels and high cholesterol. Any one of these symptoms can make daily life insufferable, but many men live with several or all of them. Women experiencing pre-menopause and menopause often report the most bothersome symptoms as mood changes, weight gain, mental fog, decreased sex drive and irritability. Other symptoms may include fatigue, anxiousness, difficulty sleeping, hot flashes, and discomfort during intercourse.
Understanding your options.
Decide if hormone therapy is the best treatment option for you to regulate your hormones. Talk to your doctor on a regular basis to discuss changing symptoms, especially throughout your menopausal years. By taking the right steps, you can experience freedom from discomfort and frustration. When hormones are properly balanced, things like; memory issues, brain fog, fatigue, sleep issues, irritability, mental health concerns, decreased strength, joint pain, and low libido can be concerns of the past!
