How a Hormonal Imbalance Affects Your Health

Many individuals are currently experiencing a hormonal imbalance and don’t even realize it — even though it may be impacting their health. Issues such as abnormal menstruation, decreased sex drive, increased premenstrual tension, insomnia, severe acne breakouts, bouts of depression, and much more can all be possibilities that you have a hormone imbalance. This is why we offer a hormone evaluation.

How Does a Hormone Evaluation Work?

A hormone evaluation is a very simple procedure that is quick, convenient and yields many benefits. It can be performed using a blood sample. If it is revealed that you do have a hormonal imbalance, it can be treated with diet, exercise, and hormone therapy, such as Biote® hormone replacement.

What Hormones Can be Checked?

  • Testosterone
  • Cortisol
  • DHEA
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Human growth hormone
  • Thyroid-stimulating hormone (T4 and T3)
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)

Different Symptoms Mean Different Hormones

A hormone evaluation will only work if the right tests are ordered, which is why it’s important to match your symptoms with the correct hormone.

For example, for hot flashes and irregular periods, your estrogen and sometimes progesterone should be assessed — whereas depression, weight issues, and fatigue could require a thyroid check.

On the other hand, many individuals simply want a general hormone evaluation so that they will know exactly where their levels are for future reference if something changes.  

Whether you have specific symptoms or you want an overview of where you currently are with your hormones, we will help determine the right test for you.
