What are hormones?

Hormones carry messages and impulses and are a significant part of your body’s processes. The language between two endocrine glands happens via hormones. One endocrine gland frees a hormone, another endocrine gland alters the hormone levels that it is releasing. This way they get in sync to let the body process work in order. 

What is the role of hormones in the human body?

Hormones are important to maintain your bone health, boost metabolism, encourage good cardiovascular health, and promote sexual health and sleep quality. 

Hormone-producing glands like the Pituitary, Thyroid, Adrenal, Pancreas, Hypothalamus, Testes, Ovaries etc are the ones which release hormones and keep them in check. The hormones they produce interact with other hormones and impact your overall health. 

Thyroid gland – Located at the front of your neck, the butterfly-shaped gland is the theory behind your metabolism. The main factor in keeping your metabolism in check is based on how this gland operates. The food that you eat is assimilated and converted into energy. Your speed of metabolism is governed by the thyroid which produces hormones like Thyroxine, Triiodothyronine etc. 

Pituitary gland – At the base of your brain and the bridge of your nose, the pituitary gland dwells. It is branched into the posterior lobe and the anterior lobe. The pituitary gland monitors the process done by endocrine glands. It is the super gland that micromanages your metabolism, growth, reproduction and brain health. 

Pancreas – in the back of your abdomen is the pancreas. The pancreas makes Insulin and Glucagon, both of which regulate your blood sugar levels. With enzyme production also in its scope of work, the pancreas makes sure that it helps in the digestion of food in the small intestine. Diabetes is one such condition that affects the pancreas. 

Adrenal – The adrenal glands are present on top of your kidney. They look like small, triangular-shaped organs and produce adrenaline. The adrenaline rush phrase comes from the gland adrenal It is because the adrenal gland is responsible to regulate your stress and anxiety levels, and giving you that sudden rush as a response to something exciting. They also produce hormones that regulate blood pressure, and the body’s response to inflammation. 

Hypothalamus – Just located above the brainstem, this gland is a powerhouse as it looks after your significant body processes like body temperature, thirst, fatigue, emotional health etc. It is also closely connected with your nervous system and regulates your body’s behaviour and response to the environment. As a key part of the brain, it has the upper hand and controls the pituitary gland, the gland which communicates with other endocrine glands. 

Testes – Located on either side of the penis, it supports male reproductive health. Producing sperm and male reproductive cells are two of its key responsibilities. Also, it generates the male sex hormone testosterone which is vital in maintaining a good sperm count in males. 

Ovaries – Pair of female reproductive organs are termed ovaries. They maintain a regular menstrual cycle and produce eggs and hormones like estrogen and progesterone. These hormones produced by ovaries have a lot of significance in pregnancy. Also, the other features of females like breast development etc are the job of ovaries. 

What is the reason behind hormonal imbalance?

Damage to endocrine glands, chromosomal disorders, hereditary issues or gene mutation issues, and autoimmune conditions are some of the reasons that cause turbulence in your hormonal health.  Even the medications you take to treat some diseases can result in hormonal imbalances. Some of the early signs of hormonal imbalance are hot flashes, fatigue, night sweats, irregular periods, low libido, depression etc. Hormonal imbalance impacts your health drastically and it is best to see an endocrinologist to get a thorough diagnosis and care.
