People can suffer from a hormone imbalance when their body does not produce enough or too much of a hormone. Hormones act like chemical couriers that go through the body to the different tissues and organs. The endocrine glands are what produce the hormones. There are several different endocrine glands in the human body. The major ones are the thymus, pancreas, adrenal glands, pituitary gland and the thyroid. Hormones can affect the body and small fluctuations can have a major impact on a person’s body.
Many symptoms of a hormone imbalance are experienced by both men and women. The most common symptoms of a hormone imbalance that are experienced by both sex are skin problems, fatigue, mood swings, gaining weight, reduced memory and lack of a sex drive.
