Bloating is one of those symptoms that people tend to really hate. For some people, it's just about what they're eating or not, which means they can avoid the discomfort, pain, and embarrassment that can come with extreme bloat. For others, it's a period-related symptom that pops up once a month or so and makes their jeans fit tighter and them feel as though there's a balloon in their abdomen. But there are other reasons you might be more bloated too. You might want to know more about the signs your bloating is a sign of a hormone imbalance, because addressing the underlying issue might be the best way to deal with that uncomfortable bloat once and for all.
When your hormone levels are out of balance with one another, you might notice some weird things going on with your body — and red flags that something might be off — but you have to have some sort of idea of what to look out for in order to pick up on the signs and do anything about them. If you notice some of the signs that your hormones might be out of whack, that could definitely mean that your bloating is just a related symptom instead of something else that needs to be addressed independently. Talking to your doctor about your concerns can help you address what needs to be addressed and get back on the right track.
