It would help to know which hormones are out of balance but your follicular units (hairs) are extremely sensitive to any abnormalities of your health in general and can either permanently or temporarily shed due to the abnormalities.  

Best would be to see what those hormonal imbalances are and then have it worked up.

Yes, hormone imbalances can cause hair loss. I suggest seeing a hair loss expert to evaluate and go over your condition and provide you information about your best treatment options. There are great non-invasive options like PRP/progesterone and/or hair transplantation if needed. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
