Do you often find yourself feeling easily annoyed or on edge? You may think irritability is simply a part of your personality, but it can also be symptomatic of hormone imbalances and other underlying factors. At Frankl Clinic, we evaluate your symptoms, identify the potential causes of irritability, and offer personalized hormone replacement therapy to regulate your mood and improve your overall well-being and quality of life.
Irritability is a state of heightened sensitivity to stimuli that can result in feelings of frustration, anger, or agitation. This can manifest as an excessive response to minor annoyances, impatience, or a short temper. Irritability can be caused by various factors, including stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, or underlying medical conditions.
A hormone imbalance is one of the biggest contributing factors to irritability. Hormones are essential chemical messengers that regulate many bodily functions, including mood, appetite, sleep, cognitive function, and sex drive. When your hormone levels are out of balance, it can impact your emotional state and lead to irritability.
For example, imbalances in the stress hormone cortisol or the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone can affect mood and lead to irritability. In women, hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or menopause can also cause irritability. By identifying the root cause of your irritability, we create a personalized hormone replacement therapy plan to help balance your hormone levels and improve your mood and quality of life.
