Recent research has linked gut bacteria to hormonal balance and various physiological processes in the body.  Disturbances in gut bacteria, called gut dysbiosis, have been associated with hormonal imbalances, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and menopausal hormone fluctuations.  Gut bacteria influence the metabolism and modulation of sex hormones, such as oestrogen, which can affect hormone levels and contribute to conditions like oestrogen dominance.Histamine, a biogenic amine, also affects hormonal balance and has a bidirectional relationship with sex hormones.  Imbalances in histamine levels can contribute to reproductive problems and menstrual irregularities. Histamine also interacts with the stress response system and affects cortisol production, highlighting its role in stress hormone regulation.Testosterone is the main male sex hormone responsible for muscle strength, condition, libido and stamina. It also promotes fat metabolism and the production of vasoprotective HDL cholestenol, improves brain function, normal height and hair growth, and the formation of amino acids and red blood cells. Estradiol also plays an important role in male hormone metabolism. In men it is produced in small amounts in the adrenal glands, testes and fat tissue and is important for fertility and potency in men. The balance between oestrogen and testosterone is more important than the individual results. Common symptoms of male oestrogen dominance include headaches, irritability, mood swings, low sex drive, weight gain, water retention, swollen feet, increased risk of thrombosis, thyroid problems, increased risk of heart attack, breast development, enlarged prostate, hair loss, increased fat deposits and general puffiness and sleeplessness.Therefore, a combination of hormone and gut tests is a good way to better understand the underlying problem and to treat the problem effectively.
