Hormonal Imbalance – How Do You Know If Your Hormones Are Out Of Balance?
If you are struggling to lose weight, or feel like you have lost your mojo or just not feeling you, here are common symptoms that can indicate a hormone imbalance may be an issue.
As we hit perimenopause and menopause hormones levels can drastically change and that has a cascading effect upon our total health.
*Fat in new areas and hard to lose (high estrogen or high insulin)
*Sleep disturbance and poor sleep patterns (low estrogen and/or progesterone, high or low cortisol)
*General weight gain (high or low cortisol, high or low estrogen, low thyroid or high insulin)
*Fatigue (low thyroid, high or low cortisol, low estrogen, high insulin)
* Incontinence (low estrogen)
*Hair loss, thinning hair (low or high thyroid, high testosterone or high estrogen)
*Crying and emotional (low cortisol)
* Stubborn Midsection weight gain (high testosterone or high insulin)
*Hip and thigh fat or cellulite (high estrogen)
* Brain Fog (low thyroid hormones, low estrogen, low cortisol)
* Anxiety, depression, sadness, feeling “low energy” (low thyroid, high/low cortisol)
* Facial hair (high testosterone or high estrogen)
*Water retention (high estrogen)
SO what can you do?
Get a blood test done at your GP and find out exactly what is going on and where your markers are, no one should have to put up with these symptoms they really can be distressing and affect your mental and physical health.
