I have aged dramatically in the last 4 or 5 months, I have just turned 21. My skin has lost its glow and Ive lost fullness in my face whilst my hips and thighs have got bigger. I am in the process of finding cause but think this may be due to hormone imbalance, is ageing caused by hormone imbalance potentially reversible? Even completely reversible? or almost completely reversible?

Hormone Alterations and Aging
Look around you and see if your sister, mom and aunts had similar changes when they were your age. It would be simple to get a basic profile from your general practitioner - thyroid hormone, etc and or see your GYN for a more practical approach and explanation for body morphologic changes - clinical exam, hormone screening studies, etc. Hratch L Karamanoukian MD FACS
Aging caused by hormonal imbalance
I'm glad you are sourcing the causes of your hormonal imbalances. Once those are established, proper medications, vitamins, etc. will help get things back on track for you. It will take time, absolutely, but most of what you've experienced should be able to be fixed, especially since you are very young.
