Your hormones are likely balanced when you are feeling great and looking your best. If the scale starts to tip and some hormones elevate while others dip out of normal range, you’ll likely feel it. Hormone imbalance can create a range of symptoms, includingfatigue, irritability, weight loss or weight gain, cravings, bloating, accumulation of belly and hip fat, sleep disturbances, anxiety, and just feeling like something is “off.”
