Hormone Testing

What can regulating your hormones help alleviate?

People struggling with a hormonal imbalance often report feeling off. Because there are many different hormones involved in a multitude of different bodily processes, the exact symptoms of a hormone imbalance can vary widely from person to person. While the precise symptoms depend on the specific hormones involved, signs that might indicate that a hormone imbalance is present include the following:

  • Lack of energy, fatigue, and sleep problems
  • Mood swings, irritability, and depression
  • Brain fog and memory issues
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain and fluid retention
  • Headaches
  • Menstrual issues
  • Headaches
  • Thinning hair and skin issues
  • Joint pain and muscle weakness
  • Slow wound healing
Surgery shouldn’t be your first option. Neither should taking a prescription.

Understanding Hormones

Chemical messengers produced by the endocrine system that convey vital information among various cells and tissues, hormones play a crucial role in controlling most major bodily functions. In fact, hormones are involved in everything from hunger, metabolism, and growth to reproduction, the immune system, and mood. You probably recognize the names of some of the major hormones.

Estrogen is the primary sex hormone for women. For men, testosterone is the main sex hormone. Many people know that melatonin plays a role in sleep. Cortisol also enjoys a fair amount of recognition; it’s sometimes called the stress hormone, but it is involved in far more than just the stress response. These are just a few of the many hormones that must work together harmoniously to keep the human body functioning smoothly.

Hormone Testing

If a hormone imbalance is suspected, you will be asked about the symptoms you are experiencing and your family history. It’s likely that some lab work will also be requested. Hormone testing can often provide welcome confirmation of the problem and valuable insight into proper treatment. Urine, blood, and saliva tests can be utilized, but each form of hormone testing has its own strengths and weaknesses. Our doctors will select the appropriate tests for your unique situation so that we can piece together an accurate picture of your health.
