Our anti-aging clinic in Orlando offers hormone replacement therapy for patients who are suffering from a decrease in hormone levels or from hormonal imbalance. In one of our previous blogs, we talked a little bit about hormone replacement therapy and how it can help restore your hormone levels back to normal through the use of bioidentical hormones. However, how do you know if you have a hormonal imbalance? A change in hormone levels is not always something that we are immediately aware of. While some of the symptoms are more obvious and noticeable, some are very subtle.
Weight gain is pretty noticeable, however, the reasons behind the weight gain are not always as obvious. While many people may try to combat this weight gain with a healthier diet and more exercise, this won’t do much to help if the weight gain is the result of a hormonal imbalance. If you are struggling with persistent weight gain and can’t seem to get it under control no matter how hard you exercise, you may want to have your hormone levels evaluated.
If you are suffering from insomnia, there is a good chance that hormonal imbalance is the culprit. Hormonal imbalances can negatively affect your sleep patterns, which then adds more physical stress on your body. A lack of sleep puts your body under duress which can also lead to further imbalances. Not being able to sleep is not normal. If you are suffering from insomnia, it is best to seek help.
Anxiety or Depression
Everyone gets sad every now and again, however, if you are not feeling like yourself and are having trouble finding enjoyment in the things you used to, then this might be a sign that you are suffering from depression. Depression is not something that just simply happens. Often, depression and anxiety are the results of hormonal imbalances and you should seek out an evaluation.
These are just a few of the potential signs of hormonal imbalance. If you suspect you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance, come into CIMA today. Our anti-aging doctor can help you start feeling like a younger, more youthful you in no time.
