Looking at hormonal imbalance requires a lot of patience because some people experience an entire list worth of symptoms while others have no symptoms at all!
Today, we want to get into what hormonal imbalance looks like and how it can impact you (even if you have no symptoms). So before we get started, we have a few things to say about changes in hormones.
Everyone will experience a natural decline in hormones over time, while it’s often associated with older people and typically women (thanks, Menopause!) the truth is imbalanced hormones can affect both men and women and may strike at any age.
While it is more common to see later in life, there have certainly been cases in which patients as early as their 20s and 30s have experienced hormonal imbalance.
What Can Hormonal Imbalance Do to Our Bodies?
Imbalanced hormones can have a significant impact on our health and livelihood, and we may not even have symptoms!
Symptom or no symptom if imbalanced hormones are left untreated there are potentially harmful consequences. Balanced hormones can help fight our chances of developing diseases like:
- Cardiovascular disease
- and certain cancers
Signs of Hormonal Imbalances
Do you want to stay on top of your health and be sure you’re not dealing with hormonal imbalance? Come in for your consultation! Still not convinced? Here are five telltale signs of hormonal imbalances.
Sure, we all get tired and some weeks are more pressing than others. But if you feel you’re taking care of yourself (sleeping well, staying hydrated, etc.), but still feel exhausted or feel like you’re not yourself, changing hormone levels can be to blame.
2. Sudden or Unexplained Weight Gain
When weight is put on suddenly, or the pounds continue to add on even though you’re exercising and eating clean, hormones may be the culprit.
This is a common sign for men and women, as well as stubborn belly fat that doesn’t seem to burn off no matter how hard you work.
Difficulty sleeping is normal, especially if you’re stressed at work or have experienced a significant change recently, but if it’s persistent, it’s probably your hormones.
4. Changes in Skin and Hair
The quality and vitality of your skin and hair are directly related to your hormones. Any abnormalities in your hormones may lead to saggy, dry skin or thinning and loss of hair, and brittle nails.
5. Low Sex Drive
Men and women are subject to irregularities related to their sex hormones. And if you notice an extreme change in your libido, then your hormones may be why.
These five symptoms are some of the most common, but they certainly are not the only possibilities. Get in touch with our team today to discuss any concerns or to find out if other persistent symptoms may be related to hormonal imbalance.
