Hormones For Women Dallas
Hormones For Women- Millions of women suffer from the adverse effects of hormone imbalances and they don’t even know it. Hormone levels can decline as women age or secondarily due to chronic stress (job and family), chronic illness, poor eating habits, weight loss or weight gain. Interestingly, hormone imbalances are not just seen in older women, but can be a problem even in your early twenties.
The symptoms of hormone imbalances are generic and it’s frequently not easy to determine which hormone deficiency may be responsible for a given symptom.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance includes:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of libido
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Poor memory
Hormones are connected together like a web – a deficiency in one can cause disruptions in other hormones, complicating the problem.
The most common conditions resulting from hormone imbalances are:
- Perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause
- Hypothyroidism (Low Thyroid)
- Adrenal Fatigue
