Currently, hormone imbalance symptoms in adolescents are common. This is caused by several reasons that cause the rise and fall of hormone production.

Teens today are exposed to hundreds of chemicals, compared with adolescents in previous generations. These chemicals are present in both the polluted environment or as preservatives, food colorings and flavorings found in food products and beverages.

Chemicals are present in the form of pesticides in fruits and vegetables, plastics, maintaining beauty products, etc. and once they enter the body they cause a lot of hormonal problems. Teenagers tend to eat a lot of fast food products than to have a balanced diet that includes fresh foods.

Another cause of symptoms triggered by hormonal imbalance is stress. Competition at school, parents pressure, sibling rivalry, the desire to be accepted in certain groups, put even more stress on a teenager. When stress levels are high, there is a hormonal imbalance, affecting the adrenal glands.

These imbalances can cause various physical but also emotional problems. The adrenal glands produce a significant amount of cortisol that decreases the production of progesterone. Thus, there is retention of fat leading to weight gain and predisposition to obesity of young adolescents.
