I don't know: which of your body's thousands of hormones you're referring to and what an imbalance test is. You need to provide much more information before I can give you an answer. If you gained weight, you still need to burn off those calories (3500 to the pound) to lose the weight again. Try talking w/your doctor. ...Read more

How can you tell if your lymph nodes are abnormally enlarged in your neck, armpits or groin?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.
