Everyone knows that diseases can be caused by a wide variety of factors, but not many people are aware that one group of these factors are hormones, or more specifically, abnormal levels of hormones. And some forms of hormonal imbalance may have tragic consequences. Hormones affect all aspects of our body and control the function of many vital organs. Hormonal imbalance often significantly decreases quality of life because hormones are responsible for regulating all the functions of our body.
Disorders of the endocrine system (endocrine = hormonal, hormone-producing) can affect both sexes, but differ in their clinical presentation between women and men. The most common symptoms in women are mood swings, weight fluctuations and skin problems, while men most often develop problems with prostate, passing urine and decreased libido.
