Here's What Happens to Your Body When Your Hormones Are Imbalanced

You’re angry, tired, stressed, and hot. What’s going on? You may have a hormone imbalance. When you have a good balance of hormones in your bloodstream, your body functions like it’s meant to. But a small change in any hormone can change your mood substantially.

Dr. Steve Warren knows the toll hormonal imbalances have on your body. He wants to share his expertise and help you understand what happens when your hormones are out of balance. 

What hormones do

Hormones keep your bodily functions working at a normal level. They’re released from glands in your endocrine system. Hormones help control important bodily functions, like:

How a hormone imbalance affects your body

Although these symptoms are the most common, women and men can experience different symptoms due to their sex glands.

Women

The most common causes of hormone imbalances in women are menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth, and menopause. They cause important sex hormones to fluctuate, like estrogen. Birth control is another reason women have hormonal imbalances.

Symptoms unique to women include:

Men

In men, prostate issues and hypogonadism can cause hormone imbalances. Hypogonadism causes a drop in testosterone production, the sex hormone for men. Men often experience symptoms like:

Regardless of your gender, a hormone imbalance can impact your wellness and quality of life. Dr. Warren can learn what’s causing your symptoms and give you some much-needed relief.

How to treat hormone imbalances

Dr. Warren takes a personalized approach when treating hormonal imbalances. Your treatment depends on what your lab tests reveal.

If they show low levels of estrogen or testosterone, he may recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. If your growth hormones are low, then peptide therapy can balance them out.
