It’s not unusual for the symptoms of a hormone deficiency to develop so slowly that the patient has no idea what’s happening. Those same symptoms can also be signs of other types of health issues. The only way to know for sure is to be tested and determine if some sort of deficiency is present. If you are experiencing any of these signs, help with identifying and treating the deficiency will definitely improve your quality of life.
Changes in Mood
Hormones play a major role in our emotions. When there is some sort of hormone deficiency present, we begin to experience issues that alter our personalities. People who normally able to maintain calm in a tough situation may begin to become angry, incapable of dealing with tasks that once came so easily, or begin to withdraw from family and friends.
In more severe cases, the patient may develop any number of emotional illnesses. That includes various types of panic disorders or some level of depression. By identifying the type of deficiency present and taking action to correct, patients may begin to feel better in a matter of weeks.
Loss of Interest in Intimacy and Other Activities
While all sorts of factors can influence the desire for intimacy, there is no doubt that a hormone deficiency will cause the desire to fade away. Keep in mind that this is not a sign of a physical inability to engage in intimacy.
Just as the patient loses interest in intimacy, other activities also lose any attraction. The patient may have once loved to play board or video games, but now leaves them alone. From engaging in sports to watching a favorite television program, the interest is simply not there any longer.
It’s not unusual for patients with some sort of hormone deficiency to find it more difficult to concentrate. Tasks that once were so easy to perform require more mental effort. Attempting to retain information learned in a meeting or classroom is also difficult. To some degree, any type of mental activity seems unusually difficult.
Chronic Fatigue or Weakness
While many of the effects associated with a hormone deficiency have to do with the mind, there are also physical consequences. The deficiency can also leave the individual feeling constantly fatigued and feeling physically weak. This is true even after getting plenty of sleep.
