Hormones Q & A
What are hormones?
Your hormones are made by the glands that make up your endocrine system and are responsible for sending various messages through your bloodstream to your tissues and organs. Your hormones play an important role in many of your bodily functions, including mood, heartbeat, food digestion, metabolism, and sex drive.
Some of the hormones in your body include:
- Growth hormone
If your specialist at Nexclin Medicine suspects your hormones are imbalanced after an examination and review of your symptoms and health concerns, a saliva test is done to assess your levels and determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
What are signs of hormone imbalance?
An imbalance in hormone levels can occur at any time and affect any of the glands in your endocrine system, which also means symptoms can vary greatly.
Common symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:
Your thyroid hormones regulate heart rate and metabolism. An imbalance may affect your ability to lose or gain weight, as well as your mood and heart rate.
Male and female sex hormones
A decrease in testosterone or estrogen levels may lead to sexual dysfunction, weight gain, moodiness, and fatigue.
A lack of growth hormones may make it difficult for you to maintain lean body mass.
Your adrenal hormones are your stress hormones, and an imbalance may lead to chronic fatigue and mental fogginess.
A hormone imbalance may also lead to glucose intolerance and increase your risk of diabetes.
What are bioidentical hormones?
The team at Nexclin Medicine uses bioidentical hormone therapy to restore hormone balance. These hormones are created from natural sources and contain the same molecular structure as the hormones in your body. They don’t cause the same side effects as synthetic hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are used to treat:
- Andropause or low testosterone
- Adrenal fatigue
- Growth hormone deficiencies
To restore balance, your specialist at Nexclin Medicine compounds a very specific hormone replacement regimen tailored specifically for your needs so you get relief from your symptoms and the most health benefits.
