Dealing with mood swings can be difficult for a person who has them as well as their loved ones. It is normal for people to experience a change of their mood when their circumstances change or certain things happen in their lives. Receiving bad news can make someone depressed, sad, and angry. Receiving good news can make someone happy, joyful, and energized. Mood swings are different. They can happen for no reason and can completely control a person’s life. Hormonal testing may be a good way for some people to find out the cause of their mood swings.
Learn More About Hormonal Testing
There is no doubt about the fact that hormones are complex. However, it is a good idea for a person to take a little bit of time to read about them so that they understand what we may test for and what the results could mean. If a woman is having her hormones tested because of mood swings, we may recommend a reproductive hormone panel. This would include testing progesterone, total estrogen, DHEA, estradiol, and testosterone. This same panel would likely be called for if a woman was experiencing changes in hair growth and weight, a low libido, or painful or heavy periods.
There are multiple options for hormonal testing. Our professional will discuss the right option for you. The goal is to see where the levels are, and then we can find a way to bring balance to the body. Another hormonal test that we may recommend is a thyroid test.
There are some testing kits that a person can purchase and use at home. In some cases, using these tests can be beneficial because they give a person an idea of where their hormone levels are. However, it is never a good idea to self-diagnose. It is much better to visit a qualified professional for hormonal testing. In addition to making sure that the tests are done right, this professional will be able to provide a diagnosis and then recommend a treatment plan.
It is good to note that timing is important when it comes to hormonal testing. Of course, we will give you exact instructions on when to have the test done.
