Various other fits and phenomenons go hand-in-hand with growing up, and most of them are heavily influenced by hormonal changes and imbalances.

Reasons Behind Hormonal Imbalances inTeenagers

When we talk about causes for this state of affairs, there are many. First of all, the world we live in now is quite different than the world our grandparents lived in. Unfortunately, different in a negative manner, since our nature is getting more and more influenced by constant pollution and destruction the human kind inflicts upon it. Therefore, with all the processed foods we eat, teenagers are usually not getting enough nutrients in order to function properly. Thus, all they eat is junk food, often completely ruling out all the more than necessary fruits and vegetables. This can easily lead to hormonal imbalances, especially in the delicate state teenagers go through. Secondly, going through this part of one's life, involves numerous tests, competitions, high hopes and fears. School, relationships and other social factors, all influence one's self-esteem. Also, these cause great amounts of stress, troubling teenagers in every step they make. This stress, accompanied with peer pressure, great expectations and similar states of affairs, easily lead to hormonal balances, triggering all the symptoms of being a teenager.

Manifestations of Teenage HormonalImbalances

There are many “trademarks” of adolescence. Most of them are connected with irritability. Namely, most teenagers are able to burst in tears as easy as in laughter or an anger fit, without even being provoked. Nausea, headaches and different types of pain, frequent state of dizziness and overall confusion are just some of the additional symptoms. Acne, hives and appearance of bruises and edema as well, all add on to the list. Finally, aggressiveness, anxiety and other emotional imbalances are all a part of growing up. Girls usually get into adolescence earlier than boys do, and have more symptoms. However, mood swings, bodily changes, increased sex drive, excessive growth, and many other are present with both sexes. Boys develop a deeper voice, facial and bodily hair, while girls get their periods and experience the development of many different parts of their body.

Sometimes, these hormonal imbalances may go too far, making one's correct functioning impossible. Night sweats, constant headaches, rage, irritability, depression and weight gain are some of the symptoms of things going bad. Then, it is best to seek medical assistance as soon as possible.
