While diet and exercise play an important role, hormones can also have a significant impact on weight management. Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat.
The following hormone imbalances are key contributors to weight gain:
Estrogen Dominance. Estrogen/progesterone imbalance leads to: weight gain in hips and thighs; water retention; low thyroid/metabolism
Androgen Deficiency. Testosterone/DHEA imbalance leads to: decreased lean muscle; low metabolic rate; increase in body fat
Vitamin D3 Deficiency. Leads to: hyperinsulinemia; visceral fat
Thyroid Deficiency. Elevated TSH is indicative of: hypothyroidism; low metabolic rate; stalled weight loss; obesity
Insulin Resistance. Elevated fasting insulin indicates insulin resistance, a precursor of metabolic syndrome. Increased appetite, sugar cravings and belly fat combined with elevated HbA1c is predictive of type 2 diabetes.
