Hormone Abuse

Many people with vague or non-specific symptoms may turn to supplements and/or alternative medicines to boost their health or ‘jump start’ their systems. What is unknown is that, many of these unwarranted treatment or supplements obtained from unreliable sources may be adulterated with hormones such as steroids, thyroid hormones or other hormones. Consumption of these products may result in hormones abuse and bring about long term detrimental effects. Anyone with chronic debilitating symptoms should consult a physician for a proper work up and should avoid relying on supplements from unreliable sources to resolve their symptoms. Many of such hormonal abuse cases need to be promptly managed with care and endocrine expertise to avoid long term complications.
