Interview Dr. Eldred Taylor
When hormones are out of balance, this can cause many different symptoms and problems. When an individual has a number of symptoms or physical problems, hormones can be a good place to start. Consider a few of the most common signs associated with hormonal imbalance:
Weight gain around the abdominal area is frequently experienced as we age. However, it can be fairly dramatic when hormonal imbalances are present. Treatment often includes having thyroid levels monitored and adjusted accordingly.
Anxiety is often accompanied by mood swings, irritability, and even depression. This type of hormonal imbalance can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. This is often associated with estrogen imbalance related to the menstrual cycle. Doctors can treat patients with a number of remedies such as daily dosages of vitamin B6. Patients are also asked to avoid caffeine, limit sugar, and cut back on processed foods.
Low sex drive
Decreased libido, or even a total loss of desire, is commonly seen in both men and women when hormone levels fluctuate. Do not be shy about mentioning this naturally occurring problem with your doctor.
Chronic fatigue is often a result of hypothyroidism. It is usually accompanied with weight gain, digestive problems, and forgetfulness. Hormone doctors use a comprehensive thyroid test to determine if a patient has hypothyroidism. Hormone therapy can help you return to a more vigorous life.
Other common symptoms
Hormone imbalance can be made manifest in the form of hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep disorders. These symptoms are typically caused by an imbalance of progesterone and estrogen. They are common signs that a woman may be premenopausal.
