Are Hormones Wreaking Havoc in Your Body?

By Genevieve Cunningham

If you’re a woman, you’re already familiar with the word hormones. We’re taught from a fairly young age that hormones are just a part of being a woman. They’ll cause mood swings and sweating and weight gain and a great deal of other horrible and unwanted symptoms. The truth is that hormones are a part of every person’s life, no matter their gender, but women’s work on a delicate balance of peaks and valleys. This makes us a little more susceptible to problems with the changes that occur. To keep you in the best health possible, take a look at these signs that hormones are wreaking havoc in your body, followed by what you can do about it.

Your Weight is Changing Constantly

If you’re having trouble keeping your weight consistent, it might be due to hormones. If you’re a binge eater or a yo-yo dieter, then your problem is not with hormones but rather lifestyle. But, if you eat a consistent diet, exercise regularly, and yet the pounds still seem to fluctuate greatly, your hormones might be a bit unstable. To know for sure, monitor your diet, activity level, and weight for a few months. If you think hormones might be the culprit of your weight problems, get to the doctor and get checked.

Your Moods Won’t Stabilize

This is the most obvious and famous sign of a hormonal imbalance. While it’s normal to change moods from time to time, it’s not normal if yours simply won’t stabilize. Extreme bouts of anger, happiness, sadness, and other moods might indicate the need for a trip to the doctor and a test of your hormone levels.

Your Skin and Hair are Unpredictable

Acne. Excess hair growth. Thinning hair. Any or all of these might signify that your hormones are not as stable as they should be. It’s OK if you occasionally lose some hair or have bouts of acne from time to time. That is considered normal. But if yours pops up suddenly, and you can’t seem to make it go away, a trip to the doctor for a quick hormonal check might be your best method for battling these issues.

If you suspect your hormones are causing problems in your body, get to your doctor to monitor their levels. Sometimes, all it takes is some minor attention to get your hormones back on track. You can also be proactive by maintaining a healthy lifestyle including exercise, a well balanced diet, and stress relieving activities. Hormone health makes a big difference in your overall well-being. Get yours on track and you’re likely to feel better from here on out.
