This video will teach you everything you need to know about low estrogen (for both young and older women).
Estrogen is a critical sex hormone found in both men and women.
When we talk about estrogen we are almost always referring to estradiol (the most powerful estrogen).
This hormone helps regulate important functions in the body such as your weight, how much fat you store (and where), heart disease, bone density, mood and so on.
Low levels of estrogen can cause serious and significant symptoms which need to be identified and treated as soon as possible.
Testing for low estrogen is easy (compared to high estrogen) and should always be accompanied by progesterone and sex hormone binding globulin.
This video also discusses the causes and treatments of low estrogen!
I’m Dr. Westin Childs and I focus on thyroid health, hormone balance, and weight loss. I write about thyroid disorders, weight loss, insulin resistance, estrogen/progesterone balance on my blog. I truly believe that hormone balance is the key to managing your weight, your mood and your quality of life which is why I’m so passionate about it.
I take a personalized/functional medicine approach to management of conditions. I’m not accepting patients but you can learn more and get plenty of information on my blog!
