Hormone deficiency

Hormone deficiencies occur when the endocrine glands do not produce enough hormones to maintain proper physiological function. Some common symptoms are fatigue, weight changes, mood changes, and difficulty concentrating. However, symptoms can vary greatly depending on the deficient hormone.

The symptoms can often significantly reduce one's quality of life. If you suspect a hormone deficiency, I recommend getting tested by an endocrinologist.

How are hormone deficiencies treated?

Treatment is tailored to the specific deficiency and aims to return hormones to adequate levels, reducing symptoms and risk of complications.

What is the outlook for people with deficiencies?

With prompt diagnosis and proper treatment, many patients see great improvements in their symptoms and quality of life. However, treatment is generally lifelong as deficiencies do not resolve on their own in most cases.

It's important that testing and treatment are supervised by an endocrinologist to ensure hormones are restored to safe levels. Blood tests will monitor hormone levels during treatment. With compliant management of therapy, most patients can live full, active lives.
