Hormone Imbalance Q & A
After middle age, your hormone production decreases significantly. This can cause fluctuations in hormones — leading to symptoms of menopause and low testosterone. Hormonal imbalances can also occur at other times in your life, depending on your nutrition, fitness, stress levels, and overall health. Identifying the stressors that cause your hormones to go out of balance and eliminate them can help to regulate your hormone levels can reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
What causes hormonal imbalance?
Besides menopause and aging, hormonal imbalance can be caused by many factors, including:
- Poor diet
- Food sensitivities
- Poor gut health
- Irregular sleep habits
- Some medications, like birth control pills
- Stressful lifestyle
- Autoimmune conditions
- Thyroid conditions
Hormones naturally fluctuate throughout your lifetime, from birth to puberty, your childbearing years, and middle age. When these fluctuations cause symptoms and disrupt your normal life, you’re experiencing a hormonal imbalance.
What are the symptoms of hormonal imbalance?
Hormone imbalance, especially imbalances associated with menopause and low testosterone, includes symptoms like:
- Weight gain
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Low libido
- Anxiety and depression
- Brain fog, including difficulty concentrating
- Digestive issues, including food cravings
Normal hormone regulation allows your body to function optimally, but with hormonal imbalance, you get a roller coaster of symptoms that can make daily life difficult.
How can Functional Medicine help balance my hormones?
Depending on your symptoms and overall health, your doctor determines if you’re a good candidate for Functional Medicine hormone balancing therapy.
The AVM Wellness team tests your hormone levels as well as metabolic function using functional lab work to determine your current lab findings compared with your ideal lab ranges. Using this information, they determine the correct type of therapy and lifestyle modifications to meet your needs.
