If your hormone imbalances are causing you misery and frustration, and you are looking for answers, you have come to the right place….

Smart Hormone Balance Dr. Susan Riegg MDHi!  I am Dr. Susan Riegg MD, a retired MD with a strong interest and passion for any and all topics related to hormones and hormone balance.

I share what works for hormone balancing (and what doesn’t), so that you can cut through all of the hype and hoopla…..and take steps to fix your hormone related symptoms.

How can this help you?

Well, how about getting rid of your fatigue, insomnia, hot flashes, night sweats, hair loss, mood swings, depression….well, you get the idea.

Since I started medical school in 1986, my appetite for all hormone related topics has been insatiable (guess I should have been an endocrinologist, but I became a pathologist instead…)

I tested my own hormones for the first time in 2009, and found out that my hormones were so messed up….. I can almost guarantee you that I was more “out of whack” than you are right now….I had estrogen dominance, progesterone deficiency, almost no DHEA; adrenal fatigue and a greatly elevated TSH with very low free T3 and free T4 levels.  Oh, and a sky-high hsCRP level, indicating chronic inflammation.

I took measures to correct all of my own hormone imbalances, and it absolutely changed my life.  I feel physically and mentally better; no more insomnia; fatigue almost completely eliminated….stopped the weight gain, hot flashes, and night sweats….
