7 Signs & Symptoms Of a Hormonal Imbalance.
Here are seven major symptoms that can help you confirm if your hormones are imbalanced.
If you feel you are taking care of yourself but are still exhausted or just can’t seem to get back to your best, consider having a comprehensive evaluation of your hormone levels.
Neuroendocrinology is the study of the intimate relationship of the neurotransmitters, or chemical messengers of the brain, and hormones. Cortisol and norepinephrine, produced and released by the adrenal glands, often underlie the feelings that you may perceive as anxiety.
3. Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
The body experiences stress and when the body is stressed, it produces more cortisol. Cortisol tells your body to hang on to that fat because it’s a great storage form of energy.
There are many reasons why someone may be having difficulty sleeping. If it’s persistent, it’s likely related a hormonal imbalance. Melatonin is a hormone released by the pineal gland in the brain.
5. Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Individuals commonly experience gut symptoms related to conditions such as anxiety and depression. Hormones influence gut function in other ways as well such as affecting the microbiome of the gut, the bacterial system in our intestines. Hormone imbalances can lead to imbalances in our bacterial colonies influencing their numbers and function. Gastrointestinal imbalances can be caused by hormone imbalances and vice versa.
6. Skin and hair changes
The quality and vitality of your skin and hair is directly related to your hormones. Thyroid abnormalities, for example, may cause dry hair or skin, thinning hair, hair loss or brittle nails.
7. PMS and low sex drive
Men and women are subject to irregularities related to their sex hormones. And both men and women have relatively appropriate levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Women that are experiencing irregular menses (too long, too short, unpredictable, heavy bleeding or cramping, etc.) are more clearly demonstrating some type of abnormality in the quality, quantity or function of their sex hormones. Both sexes can experience sexual dysfunction or issues with libido.
