Obesity and Hormone Imbalance
Obesity is one of the primary causes of hormonal imbalance, yet hormone imbalance itself may be one of the major contributors to obesity in the first place. The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy doctors at ENERGENEX use a combined approach toward treating obesity and hormone imbalance, using both hormone replacement therapy and dietary and lifestyle guidance to bring you back to whole body health.
Many people experience weight gain that is directly related to their lifestyle habits, such as eating too much junk food and being too sedentary in their daily lives. For them, weight loss is a matter of getting up, getting active, and choosing to eat better foods. However, others find that their weight problems remain despite their attempts to exercise, eat better and stay active. In these cases, the underlying cause is likely related to hormonal imbalance.
Hormonal imbalances are often overlooked in our society as a true cause of weight issues, because so many people experience weight gain as a result of lifestyle choices. Proper testing of your hormones may reveal that you have an underlying issue that needs to be treated before you’re able to lose excess weight and keep it off.
If you’re overweight or obese, it’s very important to seek medical help. Obesity puts you at a higher risk for many serious health conditions, including heart disease and diabetes. Restoring your body’s hormonal balance to normal functioning levels can help you feel better, as well as aid your body’s maintenance systems in running the way that they should.
