Almost all of us will experience natural periods of hormonal imbalance or fluctuations at particular points in our lives. These imbalances usually occur when the endocrine glands are not functioning properly.
Endocrine glands produce, store and release hormones into the blood. There are several endocrine glands located throughout the body that control different organs such as the testis, ovaries, pituitary and thyroid just to name a few. Several medical conditions such as ovarian cysts, pituitary tumors, hypothyroidism and hypogonadism are known to negatively impact the endocrine glands.
Certain lifestyle habits and environmental factors may also play a role in hormonal imbalances. Some causes of these hormonal imbalances are chronic stress, diabetes, thyroid imbalance, obesity, poor nutrition, birth control and pituitary tumors among others. If you are suffering from one of these medical conditions or lifestyle habits our provider can go over your options during a private consultation.
