Signs That You May Have a Hormonal Imbalance
Hormones have a major impact on how we feel, sleep, and function throughout the day. So, when our hormones are out of balance, it can lead to several and often disruptive symptoms. Understanding the signs of a hormonal imbalance can help you identify the problem and seek out help. Treatments such as BioTE® hormone therapy are available to bring your hormones back into balance and relieve uncomfortable symptoms.
Common warning signs that you may be dealing with a hormonal imbalance include:
In women, low levels of progesterone can make it difficult to get a full night of high-quality sleep while low levels of estrogen can lead to night sweats and hot flashes. Both of these instances of hormonal imbalances can sabotage your sleep and make you feel fatigued throughout the day.
Unexplainable weight gain is a telltale sign of hormonal imbalance. Generally, weight gain that’s linked to a hormonal issue is intermittent, leading to frequent weight fluctuations. Menopause is the main cause of hormonal weight gain, although women with the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other endocrine conditions may also struggle with this issue.
Estrogen impacts neurotransmitters in the brain. So, an estrogen imbalance can alter the release of serotonin, the neurotransmitter which improves our mood. This can lead to a low mood, anxiety, and feelings of depression.
Dropping estrogen levels can trigger headaches for many women. Estrogen has even been linked to migraine headaches, given that when estrogen levels drop, the chemicals in the brain that control pain also decline. Luckily, hormone therapy can help many women suffering from chronic headaches and migraines find relief.
