Why You Should Treat Your Hormone Disorder

It may not surprise you that hormone disorders can lead to sexual dysfunction, impotence, or pain during sex, but did you know that your hormones can also impact your weight and food cravings, your mood and energy levels, and even your heart rate? 

Whether you're male or female, your hormones make a huge difference in your whole-body health and overall well-being, making it important to get checked for an underlying hormonal disorder. You might be amazed at how much better you feel after imbalances have been identified and addressed. 

At Harmony Clinics of Wichita Falls, Texas, we offer support to both male and female patients dealing with hormone disorders. Micheal Moisant, DO, and our team can recommend a range of effective treatment options to resolve your symptoms for good.

Could it be a hormone disorder?

It might mystify you why you're craving sugar all the time, or you could find that you can't seem to lose weight no matter how much you exercise. Maybe you awaken frequently during the night, or find that your internal temperature gauge swings wildly from “too hot” to “too cold.” Your sex drive may have disappeared without a trace, leaving you frustrated and emotionally confused.

What do all of these symptoms have in common? They can be indicators that you're experiencing a hormone disorder. Your hormones are part of your endocrine system, which directs each of the parts of your body, from your tissues to your organs, how to function correctly to maintain your whole-body health.

When your hormones aren't correctly balanced, your biological processes can start to fall out of line. Hormone disorders can develop for a variety of reasons. Many people find that their hormone levels decline as they age, but you can experience a hormone disorder at any point, from youth through old age.

Effective treatment options

At Harmony Clinics, we can help to diagnose your hormone problems and recommend the best treatment options for your unique health care and lifestyle needs. We take your complete health history, as well as a blood sample for diagnostic tests, to confirm your condition. We then work with you to develop a holistic plan to address the problem.

Without treatment, hormone disorders can lead to many serious conditions, including weight gain or loss, bone weakness, diabetes, and infertility, so don't delay seeking a medical opinion to restore balance to your body. 

Get in touch with Harmony Clinics so Dr. Moisant can check for a possible hormone disorder and begin treatment as needed. Schedule your initial consultation with a member of our compassionate and experienced staff by calling our Wichita Falls, Texas, office, or request an appointment using our online booking tool.
