Nearly every aspect of our physical and mental health is affected by our hormones including our sleep cycles, weight maintenance, production of acne, and our memories. Dozens of hormones control how our bodies operate and an imbalance can cause numerous issues. When even a single hormone is out of balance it can affect a person's mental, emotional, and physical health. Menopause, specifically, causes numerous noticeable changes for older women. Menopause can cause drastic mood fluctuations, hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia. The thyroid can also cause hormone imbalances and it can cause more severe medical issues. Thyroid issues should be addressed right away.
To test the balance of a person’s hormones the doctor may use a variety of tests. Which one is used will depend on the person’s issues or symptoms. Common tests include:
Treatments will vary based on what the cause of the hormonal imbalance is. Frequently, bioidentical hormone replacement will be suggested and other times a change to the person’s lifestyle and activity levels can be all that is required. If you are dealing with any symptoms related to hair loss, fatigue, low labido, insomnia, weight gain, or increased acne, the office can assist you with identifying the cause of the imbalance. Once the cause is determined, a regimen change or medication can be prescribed to rectify the imbalance.
