Facts About Hormonal Imbalances

Hormones are essential chemical messengers which regulate routine processes in the body. Hormone imbalances can affect a wide range of body functions including:

  • metabolism and appetite
  • heart rate
  • sleep cycles
  • reproductive cycles and sexual function
  • general growth and development
  • mood and stress levels
  • body temperature

All of these can negatively affect quality of life and may increase the risk for hormone-related diseases, including hormone-sensitive cancers.

A comprehensive assessment of individual hormones would provide patterns of imbalances in different hormones, while assessment of their metabolites would provide beneficial information on affected downstream pathways. This would help to treat underlying causes of hormone imbalances and identify disease risks associated with individual hormone metabolites.
