Hormone deficiency

What is hormone deficiency?

A hormone deficiency occurs when your body does not produce enough of a certain hormone. Hormones are chemicals that control various functions in your body and are produced by glands within the endocrine system.

Some common symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:

However, symptoms can vary greatly depending on the specific hormone that is lacking.

Some hormone deficiencies are caused by problems within the endocrine glands themselves. For example, an underactive thyroid gland leads to a thyroid hormone deficiency. Others may be caused by problems in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, which signal the endocrine glands to produce hormones.

Risk factors for hormone deficiencies include high stress levels, poor diet, nutrient deficiencies, chronic illnesses, menopause, and simply getting older.
