When we hear the word “hormones”, the first thing that comes to our mind is menopause and it’s raging effects on our health. Isn’t that sad? Hormonal changes affect everyone from birth to death, yet we seem to have a very negative impact of that word. And the feelings, they continue.
For women, the most pronounced changes come in their 40s and 50s but they can strike early as well around their mid- 30s. Many women have hormonal symptoms early, which are directly or indirectly related to their lifestyle and diet. Moreover, the pollution around and toxins are also a culprit as we are constantly exposed to it.
Being able to spot the signs that you have a Hormone imbalance is the key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle because they play an important role in every aspect of your well being. Let’s scroll through these signs of hormone imbalance,

#1 Constant weight gain

#1 Constant weight gain

If you’re having trouble with your weight, it doesn’t necessarily mean your diet’s wrong, it can be one of the signs you have a hormone imbalance.The so-called stress hormone “Cortisol” is secreted by the Adrenal glands. When Cortisol production is disrupted, it not only cause weight gain but can also dictate where that weight gain accumulates on your body.

#2 Poor Libido

Having a poor libido can also be one of the signs that you have a hormonal imbalance. The hormonal Androgen is manufactured in men by their testicles, and in women by their ovaries. Lack of this hormone can give rise to poor libido, even in women.

 

#3 Feelings of fatigue

Fatigue is another of the signs you have a hormone imbalance, especially if you are getting plenty of sleep, but still wake up tired. The constant state of readiness that the presence of Cortisol brings about concerning the fight syndrome occurs when feelings of stress are being experienced.

#4 Low mood

With feelings of low and bad mood such as irritability, anxiety, and depression, the Thyroid Gland can be the guilty party once again, and for exactly the same reason – over production of TSH through Hypothyroidism.

 

#5 Insomnia and interrupted sleep

Insomnia and interrupted sleep conditions are often experienced by women going through the Menopause. It is a result of the huge change to hormonal balances. Unfortunately continued insomnia and interrupted sleep is only serves to make the condition worse.

#6 Excess Sweating

Excessive sweating is another of the signs you have a hormone imbalance. Women going through the Menopause often experience hot flashes. At night, when in bed, these are known as night sweats, and are sometimes a precursor to the onset of menopause. In both men and women, night sweats can be a result of problems with the endocrine system, brought about by over or under production of hormones such as serotonin.

#7 Problems with your digestion

#7 Problems with your digestion

If you are experiencing problems with your digestion, it could be brought about through the imbalance of 3 hormones in the gastrointestinal system. These are called Gastrin, Secretin, and Cholecystokinin, also known as CCK. These 3 hormones help to stimulate the digestive process that breaks food down into simple molecules that can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream.

 

#8 Craving for sugar

Another sign you have a hormone imbalance is the craving for sugar, which can be brought about by the gland, namely the Thyroid gland. It’s another consequence of the condition of hypothyroidism, whereby the gland is under active.

#9 Hair Loss

#9 Hair Loss

We think hair loss is usually the result of a lack of Testosterone. While this may be true but it is now known that Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT for short, is believed to be the main culprit. While women only have a very small level of Testosterone in their body systems, it is enough to cause DHT to trigger hair loss.
