Early Signs of Hormonal Imbalance

Hello!

I hope you are all feeling reinvigorated as we transition into the energizing summer months! If you do not feel that you are thriving as you could be, it is possible that you are experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Let me share some of the popular signs I often see in my patients who are dealing with an unknown hormonal imbalance:
You may be experiencing low thyroid hormones if you have a couple of the following attributes:

  • Loss of the outer third of the eyebrows
  • Thinning hair
  • Swollen face in the morning
  • Swollen lower eyelids
  • Pale face
  • Dull eyes (very little shine)

You may be experiencing low adrenal hormones if you have a couple of the following attributes:

  • Excess skin pigmentation (Melasma)
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Thin and hollow face

You may be experiencing low estrogen if you have a couple of the following attributes:

  • Deep wrinkles between your nose and lips
  • Crows feet around the eyes
  • Hair loss
  • Dry eyes

You may be experiencing low testosterone if you have a couple of the following attributes:

  • Small wrinkles on the face and hands
  • Pale face
  • Dry eyes
  • Loss of facial and shoulder musculature
  • Poorly developed muscles
  • Varicose veins
  • Abdominal obesity

If you feel that some of these truly relate with you I strongly suggest having your hormone levels checked. If not, fantastic!!! Your hormones are happy.

Best,
