Could Your Symptoms be Due to Neurotransmitter Imbalance?
Complex and recurring health conditions are often masked by symptoms so common those symptoms lose their diagnostic value. The good news is that even complex health conditions reveal themselves in the form of biomarkers. Testing a patient’s biomarkers, specifically neurotransmitter levels (serotonin, dopamine, ephinephrine, norepinephrine, GABA, glutamate) and amino acids (taurine, glycine, phenylethalmine), can improve diagnostic accuracy and increase care effectiveness.
Many common symptoms are related to neurotransmitter imbalances
Neurotransmitter imbalances are associated with many of today’s most common and recurring health conditions. Because neurotransmitters are functionally integrated with the endocrine system (including the adrenal glands) and the immune system, neurotransmitter imbalances can cause widespread health problems. The following patient symptoms may indicate neurotransmitter imbalances:
- Low mood irritability
- Sleep difficulties
- Changes in appetite and sudden weight loss/gain
- Adrenal depletion
- Poor mental performance, including issues with memory, attention, and ability to concentrate
- Inability to enjoy favorite activities
