One of the most complicated parts of the endocrine system is the estrogen/androgen system. This is the part that controls things like estrogen and testosterone. Each of us (male and female) has all these types of hormones in our body. They regulate so much of our daily functioning, yet they are so misunderstood. That’s what Dr. A specializes in.
Symptoms such as excessive facial hair, persistent acne, thinning of scalp hair, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, mid-section obesity, deep voice, decreased sex drive, irregular cycles, bloating, headaches, mood swings, foggy thinking, and even insomnia are all associated with abnormalities of this axis.
Causes of these conditions may include excess body fat, excessive stress, low fiber diets, impaired immune function, environmental toxins, and conditions like PMS, PCOS. These are where you really want to see Dr. A. That’s her wheelhouse.
