Hormones have a very important role in the functioning of our body. As part of our endocrine system, hormones are chemical messengers in our blood that control many of our bodily functions, from how much we do poop, to how fast our hair will grow. This is why: More female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) cause greater blood flow to your gums, which makes them more sensitive and “overreact” to anything that may irritate them, although if the pain is very intense the best It will be that you go with your ProDent dentist.
And although many of us have had hormonal changes due to menstruation and stress, conditions such as thyroid, diabetes and even pregnancy can cause a hormonal disaster, resulting in symptoms that will take you A LOT of wave.
You go to the bathroom more (or less) If suddenly you notice that you are stringed or that you are going to the bathroom almost every 5 hours, you could have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. This happens because the thyroid hormone causes the organs to operate, or faster, or slower when there is a problem.
Your eyes look bigger: If everyone tells you that your eyes look bigger, it could signal one of the most common forms of hyperthyroidism, Graves’ autoimmune disorder. This happens because the tissue under the eye is inflamed.
Your skin is very dry: Dry skin can be a sign of hypothyroidism. When there is less production of the thyroid hormone, the metabolism of the skin is encouraged, and less oil is produced to moisturize it.
Your hair stops growing: If your hair starts to feel like a scouring pad and hair stops growing on your body, including your head, it could be a sign of hypothyroidism, because the thyroid hormone is in charge of hair growth.
You forget everything: Although the lack of memory is a symptom of hypothyroidism, short-term memory can be a warning signal. And is that if thyroid hormone levels fall, brain function is completely affected.
You are going to the bathroom often: If you feel like peeing every hour, it could be that your pancreas is not working at 100. This is the fault of the high levels of glucose and diabetes, since the kidneys have to work harder to eliminate the excess of sugar.
Vaginal Infections: If you have many vaginal infections, it can be the fault of diabetes, which affects insulin levels. Since diabetes raises blood glucose levels, mushrooms start working like crazy, because they love sugar.
Swollen feet: You can blame the progesterone of pregnancy, since it helps relax the ligaments to prepare for delivery.
Metallic taste in the mouth: After implantation, the embryo begins to produce a hormone called HcG, which produces nausea and vomiting, and changes the taste of your mouth to a metallic one.
Dark spots: If you notice dark spots on your cheeks, breasts or any other place, it could be a side effect of the increase of estrogen in your body due to pregnancy.
