What Aging Adults Should Know About Hormone Imbalances

But bridging the gap between a diagnosis and treatment isn’t always straightforward. At Midwest Anti-Aging and Med Spa, we provide individualized solutions to your hormone imbalance. Our physicians utilize innovative anti-aging treatments to restore your vitality. Here’s what you should know about hormone imbalances and what we can do to help. 

What Are Hormones?

Hormones are chemicals released created in the endocrine system and travel through the body to specific organs. There, the hormone signals to that organ to do a certain process, such as make you hungry or sweat. Hormones play an important role in moderating bodily functions, including metabolism, body temperature, mood, sleep cycles and more, so when these levels get thrown off, it can affect your entire wellbeing. 

A hormone imbalance happens when hormones in the bloodstream are either too high or too low. The symptoms may be mild or severe, depending on the circumstances. Some of the most common symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot Flashes. Your body temperature changes when hormone levels are off. When a hot flash occurs, you will suddenly feel hot, flushed and sweaty. It’s very uncomfortable and can occur during inconvenient times. Hot flashes are particularly common among women going through menopause.
  • Insomnia. Hormones control our sleep cycle. Our bodies produce melanin during the evening, which sends a message that it’s time to sleep. Unbalanced hormones can throw off these sleep hormones, causing you to have trouble falling or staying asleep.
  • Appetite and Weight Changes. Appetite changes are among the main symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Hormones regulate our appetite by sending signals to the brain when we are hungry or full. If you have a hormone imbalance, you may struggle with eating too much or too little. As a consequence, you may experience unintentional weight gain or loss.
  • Fatigue. Have you been low on energy lately? A hormone imbalance may be to blame. One of the hallmark symptoms of a hormone imbalance is fatigue and low energy levels. You might feel tired or sluggish even if you got a full night’s rest.

How Are Hormone Imbalances Treated?

We recognize the impact that hormone imbalances can have on your life. At our medspa, we use hormone replacement therapy to boost your health. Both men and women can improve their hormone levels using:

  • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement: Bioidentical hormones mimic your real hormones on a microscopic level. Your body will not be able to tell the difference between them, which means it readily accepts them. 
  • Natural Human Growth Hormone: Sermorelin is a synthetically-produced hormone that mitigates the unwanted effects of aging. Some of the benefits include healthier skin, a stronger immune system and increased energy. 
  • Testosterone Replacement: Testosterone replacement is a viable option for men and women who have low energy, poor mood and other unpleasant symptoms.
