WEIGHT

Weight gain & obesity has been increasing day by day and it is affecting 69% of us now. Hormone Testing can reveal whether hormones are the root cause of your weight gain.

Many know that maintaining an ideal weight is difficult despite the best efforts with diet and exercise. What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the missing link – sabotaging our hard work to stay slim.

What’s the Connection?

Hormones and hormonal balance are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat. Especially when we age, shifting hormones trigger numerous symptoms of imbalance – including unexplained weight gain.

The following scenarios are common hormone-related causes of weight gain:

Estrogen & Progesterone Imbalances

Result in weight gain in hips and thighs, water retention & sluggish metabolism

Low Testosterone or DHEA

Lead to decreased lean muscle and increased body fat, decreased metabolic rate & abdominal obesity

High Cortisol

Results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired & increased belly fat

Low Cortisol

Causes chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery & low immune reserves

Vitamin D3 deficiency

Associated with hyperinsulinemia & increased belly fat

High TSH

Leads to hypothyroidism, low metabolic rate & obesity

High Insulin

Indicative of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome & abdominal obesity

High HbA1c

Predictive of type 2 diabetes
