Hormone Tests and Your Supplement Needs

44 0

We depend on hormones to act as messengers to various parts of our body to tell them how they should be functioning. These fade in effectiveness as we age, leading to different health problems. Many supplements and treatments on the market promise to relieve these issues.

But how do you know you’re taking the right thing without understanding the true state of your hormones? That’s why Forrest Health makes a wide array of different hormone tests available for the benefit of our clients.

The Effects of Malfunctioning Hormones

Hormones regulate everything from our thyroid to how we feel every day. When they stop functioning the way they should, it leads to all sorts of issues.

The effects of hormonal imbalance vary depending on what’s failing. Women experiencing issues with an estrogen imbalance might experience the following:

  • A decrease in sex drive
  • Tenderness in their breasts
  • Infrequent or heavy periods
  • Fibroid tumors
  • Changes in their mood

Men suffering from fluctuations in testosterone or other sex hormones could be struggling with the following symptoms:

  • Constantly feeling hot and flushed
  • Seeing a reduction in muscle
  • Feeling tired all the time
  • Weaker sex drive
  • Changes in the strength of their voice

Before taking anything to treat symptoms you’re experiencing, make sure you’ve received a proper diagnosis for your ailments. Account for any prescription or over-the-counter medications you may be taking to offset your issues.

How Hormone Tests Could Benefit You

Symptoms clients might be experiencing may or may not be related to a hormone imbalance. Taking a test at home help you figure out if your suspicions about why you’re feeling the way you do might be correct.
