Signs That You Could Benefit from Hormone Therapy
As you age, the levels of certain hormones in your body drop, creating an imbalance that can cause a long list of troublesome symptoms. Although many people associate this kind of hormone imbalance with women, it can and does happen to men, too, and both men and women can benefit from hormone therapy to restore balance. Supplementing insufficient hormones can lead to weight loss, decreased fatigue, and much more. Is hormone therapy right for you? Here are some signs that you could be suffering from a hormone imbalance.
Unexplained Weight Gain
Many people assume that weight gain is simply part of getting older, but that is not necessarily true. Although it is natural for your metabolism to slow slightly as you age, hormone imbalances can play a much more dramatic role. If you have a hormone deficiency, such as a thyroid hormone imbalance, then not only are you likely to gain weight without making big changes to your eating habits, but weight loss may seem impossible, despite your best efforts. Hormone therapy can restore the balance that lets your body effectively burn calories so you can keep the weight off.
Hormone imbalances can cause crippling fatigue that doesn’t go away, even when you get adequate rest. Often, people with hormonal issues describe having trouble concentrating and feeling like they have brain fog. Along with this fatigue, people with hormone imbalances often experience insomnia, which further exacerbates their exhaustion. With hormone therapy, people experience more energy and better sleep, so they feel like themselves again.
Low Sex Drive
Declining hormones, especially testosterone, can drastically change your libido. A low sex drive is a telltale sign of hormonal imbalance in men and women alike. By correcting hormone deficiencies, you can restore your sexual desire to healthier levels.
