If you are a man or woman between the ages of 40 and 60, you may have discovered that it is tougher to keep off weight now than it was when you were younger. While it is important to diet and exercise, the weight just doesn’t come off like it used to. Why is that? Often times, it’s due to hormone imbalances.
Hormones Imbalance and Weight Loss
Several hormonal imbalances may increase your chances of gaining weight. During menopause, progesterone and estrogen levels change. A change in these hormones can cause irregular periods and weight gain. The changes in hormones as women enter menopause or age can also cause that person to gain weight.
Individuals with inflammatory problems such as arthritis, eczema and other disorders may also have an imbalance in their hormones. This imbalance may be caused by poor diet and lifestyle choices, which in turn cause the hormones not to work properly. That, in combination with environmental problems, can cause inflammation and weight gain.
One hormone that can cause several health problems, including weight gain, is an imbalance in cortisol. Cortisol is a chemical that regulates stress, regulates blood pressure and blood sugar, and affects our daily metabolism. If you are constantly stressed you will have an elevated cortisol level at for long periods of time with accompanying weight gain.
If you have what is sometimes known as stubborn belly fat, it’s very important to have your cortisol levels checked. Uncontrolled cortisol levels can cause obesity and all of the health problems related to being overweight. Once your cortisol levels are evened out, you will feel better in general and also begin to lose weight.
Serotonin is the hormone that helps us control our appetite. Your level of serotonin can be significantly affected by the amount of stress in your life. Reducing stress should improve your serotonin levels, but the amount of stress you have cannot always be controlled. If you have long-term stresses, your serotonin levels will be chronically low. A lack of serotonin may also cause us to crave carbs and sugar, adding to weight gain. Controlling serotonin levels will likely improve your appetite for healthy foods and help you lose weight, too.
The thyroid’s purpose is to keep your metabolism running smooth and keeps us at a healthy weight. The metabolism is in charge of all the chemical functions and reactions in the body and keeps us healthy. Because thyroid function is so crucial to our health, weight, and well-being, any problem with the thyroid must be treated by medical professionals, such as the experts at our clinic. If you have thyroid problems we can diagnose and address those problems, so your thyroid will work efficiently, you will be able to lose weight, and you will feel better in general.
