There is no end to possible symptoms relating to hormonal imbalance, but typically we see tiredness, depression, hot flushes, loss of libido, memory problems, weight gain, skin ageing, menstrual and premenstrual problems. In many cases, symptoms can be quite vague.
If you are at all concerned about your appearance and the condition of your skin, then you must be concerned about your hormone levels. With low hormone levels, skin ageing is accelerated.
Hormone balancing may involve dietary changes and lifestyle advice. Sometimes nutritional supplements will help. If hormones are required, however, then only bio-identical (or natural) hormones are recommended. These are hormones that are biochemically identical to the original human hormone. The last thing we want to do is to add in a foreign chemical that was never intended to be there.
Hormone levels can be checked with either blood, saliva or urine testing. These levels can help us guide and monitor treatment if needed. It is often more about the balance than the absolute levels of hormones. If symptoms are present, a consultation is recommended to further assess. This can be booked by calling the clinic on 32627642.
