Hormonal, metabolic and vitamin abnormalities in women can produce a number of undesirable affects, such as weight gain, sleep disturbances, infertility, fatigue, and mood disturbances. In some women, hormonal issues with estrogen / progesterone balance and altered estrogen metabolism can lead to a higher risk of developing deep venous thrombosis, altered blood pressure and fluid balance, and increase the risk of hypertension. In some more severe cases, increase risk of cancer, miscarriage, placental separation, preeclampsia, and pulmonary embolisms can occur.

Determining your risk of these issues is now much easier with the recent development of Nutrigenomic Testing. Knowing your genetic predisposition allows you and your physician to help determine the proper course of nutrition, hormonal therapy risk and metabolic risk. It can also make you more aware of the signs and symptoms of a possible complications and potential life threatening issues.
