Hormone imbalance is a true epidemic in any country.
It is becoming more common for younger women to develop imbalances in hormones because of too much stress, lack of exercise and typically poor eating habits.
“Endocrinologist” is well experienced in treating Female Hormonal Disorders.
One of the major causes of imbalance in hormones is stress, which can be emotional, physical or from an injury or poor sleep as well as stress brought on by poor diet.
Female Hormonal Disorders includes:
* Hisuitism (abnormal hair growth)
* Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
* Gonadal and Menstrual Disorders
Every woman progresses through pre-menopause and menopause in a different way. The symptoms of menopause are extremely varied and can be very debilitating. Most women tolerate the hormonal changes and live their daily lives without the need for any medical intervention.
Testosterone and DHEAS are two of the androgens women produce. When these hormones are not in balance women may experience symptoms including menstrual cycle irregularities, hirsutism (extra hair growth), acne and alopecia (hair loss).
Your doctor may design some changes to your routines to help to lessen the affects of hormone changes and, if necessary, may even prescribe medications to help balance your hormones.
Types of women hormonal imbalance:
Type 1: Progesterone deficiency
Type 2: Estrogen deficiency hormonal imbalance
Type 3: Excess estrogen hormonal imbalance
Type 4: Estrogen dominance
Type 5: Excess androgen hormonal imbalance
Type 6: Cortisol deficiency hormonal imbalance
In cases where the causes of hormonal imbalance symptoms in women are hard to pinpoint, genetic testing through urine, saliva or blood may be warranted.
Once the doctor has reviewed your diagnosis, a treatment plan that may combine medication, synthetic hormones and lifestyle changes may be tailored to fit your needs.
