Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
What are hormones?
Your endocrine system generates hormones in your glands. They’re a critical part of one of your body’s intuitive messaging systems. Hormones travel through your bloodstream to communicate with and control your body’s functions. Hormones affect metabolism, growth and development, puberty, menopause, and mood.
How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance?
For your body’s systems to operate properly, vital hormones like estrogen, progesterone, insulin, serotonin, thyroid, and cortisol have to work together and stay in balance. When they become imbalanced, it affects your overall health.
Signs that you may have a hormone imbalance are:
- Mood swings
- Low libido
- Steady weight gain or weight loss
- Brain fog
- Hot flashes
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Hair loss
You may be experiencing one, some, or all of the symptoms, which can really disrupt your quality of life.
