Weight Loss


Maintaining Balance

WeightLoss 2Maintaining a healthy weight can be a serious challenge for both men and women at any age. Nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle all play a key role in helping to keep your weight in balance – but many individuals aren’t aware of just how important proper hormone balance can be for weight management.

Hormones and Weight Gain

It’s not always understood that hormones can directly affect your weight: most people consider diet and exercise the key contributing factors. However, hormones and weight gain/loss are more closely related than you might have thought – especially when an imbalance of cortisol (sometimes called “the stress hormone”) or estrogen (in both men and women) occurs.

Treatment Options

For Women

Many women experiencing weight gain during menopause or perimenopause have turned to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) in order to restore diminished levels of estrogen and progesterone in their bodies. Diagnostic testing can be used to determine which hormones are out of balance – allowing physicians to prescribe the most appropriate treatment.

For Men

Because an imbalance of human growth hormone (HGH), testosterone, and cortisol can contribute to weight gain, many men over 45 who are experiencing the symptoms of andropause have also noticed substantial changes to their body’s composition. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), as prescribed by your physician, can help to bring your body back into balance – bringing you closer to relief from the symptoms of andropause and helping to manage your weight.
