Hormone deficiency - Balanced Hormones Center

What is hormone deficiency?

Hormone deficiency, also known as hypoendocrinism, occurs when glands in the endocrine system do not produce enough hormones to maintain proper biological function. Hormones like estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormones, growth hormone and others regulate many critical bodily processes.

Deficiencies in these hormones can develop due to:

Some common symptoms associated with hormone deficiencies include:

However, symptoms can vary dramatically depending on which hormone is deficient.

For example, thyroid hormone deficiency (hypothyroidism) causes fatigue, sensitivity to cold, constipation and unexplained weight gain. On the other hand, low growth hormone causes poor growth in children and increased body fat with muscle loss in adults.

The good news? Many hormone deficiencies are treatable through hormone replacement therapy! The knowledgeable doctors at Balanced Hormones Center can run tests to determine where deficiencies exist. They then create customized treatment plans involving medications like thyroid pills, testosterone shots or HGH injections. Treatments can bring hormone levels back into balance, resolve troubling symptoms and help patients regain health and vitality!
