5. Hormone Imbalance

Inflammation could be a byproduct of an imbalance of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Imbalance in these hormones can alter the level of cortisol, a hormone that helps keep the immune system balanced and inflammation in check. Chronic inflammation can affect women going through menopause, causing symptoms such as adult acne and osteoporosis. Studies suggest that inflammation naturally increases with age and may be a factor in many of the chronic health problems people develop later in life.
