The Cause Of The Hormone Does Not Work Optimally During Stressful Conditions?
why in stress conditions the hormonal system cannot work optimally?
Thank you for the question.
Hormones are proteins that are useful in mediating various bodily functions. There are many types of hormones in the body, and their production can fluctuate depending on many factors.
When stressed, the production of the hormone cortisol (or often called the stress hormone) by the adrenal glands will increase. As a result, the production of several types of other hormones in the body (not all hormones) can change. So, it's actually not quite right when you say that the work of these hormones is not optimal.
Unfortunately, you didn't mention what hormones you meant. Therefore, it is also difficult for us to describe how it relates to the stress that you experience, because it can vary. For example, in women, stress can interfere with the production of reproductive hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, thus making irregular periods and fertility disturbed. Another example, stress can inhibit the production of the hormone oxytocin which plays a role in the ejection of breast milk, so that even stressed mothers will reduce their milk production.
Not only stress, the production of hormones in the body can also be influenced by many factors, for example genetic, age, sex, body posture, activities undertaken, illnesses suffered, medication consumed, and many other factors. So, so that the explanation we provide is more optimal, you should clarify the purpose of your question again. Or, you can also read medical and biological books and journals to get a more complete explanation.
Hope this helps ...
