If you: Don't have diabetes your body will keep your blood sugar in the normal range in spite of eating, fasting, exercise, etc. If they function normally, all of your other thousands of hormones will be kept at normal and appropriate levels.

Is imbalanced: The body tries at all times to maintain balance but this can be disrupted by trauma, illness, diet, weight, environmental pollutants, smoking, drinking and drugs (illicit and prescribed). Imbalance can just lead to suboptimal levels of hormones/vitamins and fatigue or disease processes. Traditional medicine waits for the disease to treat, integrative medicine will treat imbalance.
