What Are Some of the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance?

This may be due to a hormone imbalance, which can affect the body in ways other than being moody or having a poor libido.

In women, losing estrogen may cause sleepless nights or poor cycles of sleep when they go through menopause. Estrogen assists the body in temperature regulation, meaning that if the hormone is insufficient in the body, it increases the chances of hot flashes, night sweats, and potentially sleep apnea. Likewise, men with a lack of testosterone may also have sleep problems.

Are you finding it difficult to concentrate or maybe you can’t seem to get your thoughts together? You may be experiencing something known as "brain fog" due to a lack of adequate levels of hormone. The brain cells fail to receive the best "signal" to function properly without enough of the hormones, which can make it harder to retain information.

You may have had recurring headaches or lethargy feelings despite sleeping at least seven hours or more each night. It could be hormones rather than flu. Antibiotics will not get rid of these headaches in many cases, and treatments such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may need to be considered.
