10 Signs of Hormonal Imbalance and How They Affect Us 

Your hormones are amazing. Why? Because they’re chemical messengers that send alerts about when things happen in your body. But when these hormones are out of whack, we experience different and often debilitatingsymptoms that need to be addressed at the root. 

Here are 10 of the most common signs that you’re dealing with hormonal imbalances. 

1. Poor Sleep 

While one or two nights of staring at the ceiling might not be cause for worry, you should seek treatment if you’re consistently struggling to get enough or good quality sleep. 

2. Fatigue and Low Energy 

Do you feel tired and burnt out even if you got more than 6 hours of sleep that night? You might be dealing with hormonal imbalances!

3. Night Sweats and Hot Flashes

Night sweats and hot flashes aren’t reserved for women going through menopause (men also experience andropause!) and could be symptoms of underlying hormonal issues. 

4. Excessive Weight and Extra Fat 

Have you tried different weight loss programs only to gain all the pounds back as soon as your diet goes back to normal? This could be caused by thyroid and hormonal issues that will continue to influence your weight and body fat until you can address the root cause.  

5. Low Libido and Sexual Dysfunction 

Sexual and erectile dysfunction are things that people of all ages deal with for a variety of reasons, the main one being hormonal imbalances that are affecting your sexual health and performance. 

6. Acne and Skin Issues 

If you’re constantly breaking out, it could be because your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong. It could be caused by chemical irritants in the products you use, orthe culprit could even be underlying issues like food sensitivity and hormonal resistance. 

7. PMS and Sympathy-PMS Symptoms 

If you consistently experience incredibly painful or severe PMS symptoms, it might be time to test your hormone levels to determine whether you might be dealing with hormonal imbalances like endometriosis and more. 

8. Brain Fog 

Struggling to stay focused or even perform basic tasks without zoning out? Your brain fog might be caused by hormonal issues in your gut or brain. 

9. Depression and Anxiety 

Hormonal imbalances could affect your gut health, which in turn affects your brain! This is because your gut produces important neurotransmitters like serotonin, and when it’s out of balance, it could affect more than just your digestion. It could actually cause depressive and anxious feelings that impact every aspect of your life. 

10. Mood Changes and Irritability 

Our moods change on the daily, so how serious could a few irritable days be? Well, when they happen for no apparent reason, it could be time to test your hormone levels!
