When you consistently have trouble concentrating or recalling information, it’s reasonable to suspect that something deeper is going on.

Brain fog is a common and inconvenient symptom of many hormone imbalances. With brain fog, you might have trouble concentrating on a task at hand, or you might have trouble recalling information or memories. In any case, brain fog can be a significant hurdle in social interactions, schoolwork, and professional life.
When you have brain fog, you might:
Eventually, you might get headaches as you try to focus or concentrate. If brain fog starts to impact your daily life and not just the days when you don’t get enough sleep, it may be worth visiting the Center for Youthful Aging for hormone testing.
Brain fog can come from many different conditions. You can get it from a lack of sleep, certain medications, stress, or depression. For most people, hormone imbalance isn’t the first guess.
Both men and women can experience brain fog as a result of hormone imbalances. Men with low testosterone and women with low estrogen (usually due to menopause) can both get reduced brain function with these conditions.
During your initial consultation at the Center for Youthful Aging, Dr. Arne reviews your medical history to determine possible causes. Then, he draws some of your blood for hormone testing. He evaluates the sample to see if hormone imbalances are present.
If your brain fog is related to menopause or low testosterone, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with pellets can restore mental clarity. Dr. Arne implants a pellet under your skin when you undergo this treatment. For weeks afterward, it gradually releases hormones steadily,e so you don’t experience fluctuations throughout the day.
In addition to clearing your brain fog and making it easier to concentrate, BHRT can balance your mood and alleviate other mental symptoms of hormone imbalances. These include sleep problems, fatigue, and anxiety.
