Hi Thanks for using healthcare magic If your face is getting bigger and bigger day by day, i think in that case try to rule out hypercortisolism.

How would i know if my hormones levels were to low
hi thanks for using healthcare magic Only way to check the hormone level is serum analysis. Send ur blood sample to check the levels of hormone like T3, T4, TSH, LH, FSH, Prolactin, Estrogen etc. Due to low hormone level, u can also get few symptoms, but without getting any investigation, it is difficult to tell, which hormone is causing it. Thanks
