Hormones have a critical role in regulating a number of body functions, including mood, metabolism, growth and development, and reproductive health. This article covers common hormone disorders, as well as their causes, symptoms, complications, and available treatments. Common treatment modalities for hormone problems include medication, lifestyle modifications, surgery, complementary therapies, and routine monitoring. The course of treatment may also be accompanied by possible negative effects, such as cancer risk, hormone overcorrection, and interactions with other medications or medical conditions. Regular hormone level and symptom evaluations by healthcare professionals are necessary to provide individual treatment plans that lower the risk of complications while achieving the desired therapeutic goals.

Keywords: Hormone disorders, therapeutic approach, hormone replacement
