What Are the Signs of Hormonal Imbalance?

If you notice any of these signs, you may want to come see one of our specialists at our hormone balancing clinic in San Diego.

Symptoms In Men

Lower Energy Levels & Fatigue

If you're constantly tired and lacking the energy to do everyday tasks, it could be a sign of hormonal imbalance.

A Decrease In Muscle Mass

Hormones can significantly affect your ability to create and maintain muscle mass. Couple this with fatigue, and you can get out of shape very quickly.

Mood Swings

Finding that you can get easily angry at little things or extremely sad at inappropriate times could be a sign of a problem. These feelings are most concerning when your emotions change quickly without any understandable reason.


Feeling extremely sad with no cause can be a problem. Depression can affect your health in many ways, and sometimes all it takes to fix it is getting your hormones under control.

Decreased Sex Drive

Low libido can exhibit differently in different people. However, if you find yourself not enjoying things you would have before, it might be a hormone imbalance.

Erectile Dysfunction

On top of a low sex drive, many people with hormone imbalances can't even get aroused. Erectile dysfunction can be very troubling for you and your partner.

Gaining Weight 

Hormones play a huge part in weight control. When they are out of balance, they can affect your appetite, causing you to eat more. You may also have a more challenging time losing weight, even with proper nutrition and exercise.


Not being able to go to sleep is a problem. Hormones can even make the sleep you are getting ineffectual by causing other sleeping disorders that affect rest.
