Signs of Hormonal Imbalance

Signs of Hormonal Imbalance

Persistent weight gain
Underlying hormonal imbalances can make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

Belly fat and loss of muscle mass
When your endocrine system is under stress there’s an underproduction of certain hormones and an overproduction of others (mainly cortisol). This makes your body store fat for future use, making an increase in belly fat a clue to adrenal fatigue.

Low libido
One of the most noticeable symptoms of hormonal imbalance is low libido, which starts with disturbed sleep.

It isn’t normal to feel sluggish, scattered or mentally foggy.

Anxiety, irritability and depression
Anxiety and depression are clues that you may have a hormonal imbalance.

Insomnia and poor sleep patterns
Lack of sleep causes physical stress and increases cortisol levels, which in turn may affect hormonal balances.

For many women, night sweats and hot flashes are the first uncomfortable sign that something may need to be examined.

Digestion problems
Gas, bloating and slow digestion are common hormonal problems that aren’t usually associated with hormonal imbalances. When you don’t have optimal digestion, your body losing nutrional benefits.

Common causes of cravings and excess eating are adrenal fatigue, insulin resistance, and other hormonal imbalances.
