Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and Weight Loss
With the warmer months here, you may be thinking about weight loss. In addition to proper diet and exercise, hormones play a vital role in our body weight and composition. When we are experiencing a hormone imbalance, we can also experience weight gain due to lowered energy levels and increased fatty deposits. On the flip side of this, overweight individuals may experience hormone fluctuations related to a metabolic syndrome.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help both men and women manage their weight. Testosterone is associated with higher energy levels and helping the body convert food into energy and lean muscle mass. Estrogen enables the leptin in our bodies to help us feel full so we eat less and increase our metabolism.
When we have low testosterone levels, we tend to become more sedentary, and more of our food becomes fatty deposits rather than lean muscle. During perimenopause and menopause, women who use BHRT typically experience fewer problems with weight gain and the distribution of fat.
BHRT pellets can help individuals with hormone imbalances lose weight by replenishing hormones with those that are naturally occurring. Pellet therapy can release hormones within the body throughout the day as needed.
