Hormonal Issues

Hormonal Issues

Hormones are mighty chemical messengers in the body! The endocrine glands produce hormones and they carry messages to your body’s tissues and organs. Hormones control core parts of the body’s processes, including complex processes like reproduction, growth, and metabolism and as we all know, mood!
Hormone levels fluctuate even over the course of a day for both men and women. If they get out of balance you may notice acne, weight loss or weight gain, irregular periods,irritability, fatigue and more.

Hormonal imbalances or issues in women are usually related to the reproductive hormones and common causes may include:

  • PCOS- polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Thyroid abnormalities
  • Adrenal gland dysfunction
  • Genetic issues

  • Menopausal transition
  • Eating disorders
  • Obesity
  • Stress

If you are experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, it is important to have a medical evaluation.
