Hormone Disorders Q & A

What is a hormone disorder?

A hormone disorder is a condition that causes an imbalance in the production and distribution of hormones throughout the body. Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate processes and systems, including:

  • Heart rate
  • Sleep cycles
  • Sexual development and arousal
  • Growth and development
  • Mood and stress levels
  • Body temperature
  • Metabolism and appetite

When you have a hormonal disorder, it causes a wide range of symptoms that may be difficult to isolate or regulate. It’s essential for you to have a knowledgeable provider, like those at Harmony Clinics, who can identify when your symptoms relate to a hormonal imbalance. 

 

What causes hormone disorders?

A variety of causes may lead to hormone disorders and hormone imbalances. Symptoms depend on which hormones are out of balance. Commonly imbalanced hormones include estrogen and testosterone, as well as thyroid, cortisol, progesterone, DHEA, and insulin.

  • Childbirth
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Chronic disease

To understand the underlying factors causing your hormonal disorder, your provider at Harmony Clinics completes a thorough physical assessment and health history. They also collect blood, to measure hormone levels and identify any imbalances that explain your symptoms.
