Millions of people struggle with weight issues. It is one of the biggest health problems worldwide. A person’s ability to lose weight can be influenced by multiple factors including age, adrenal dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, stress, and overall health. Excess weight negatively impacts your health and can promote diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and stroke. Increased body weight not only affects your physique and health, but also contributes to disabilities such as bone and joint damage leading to arthritis. Research shows that losing weight can not only prevent health conditions but can also reverse many significant health problems.
We often hear patients state that they cannot lose weight even though they diet and exercise regularly. Frequently weight loss can require the correction of underlying issues such as optimizing age related hormonal imbalances. Did you know that underlying testosterone deficiency hinders the body’s efforts in glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity? Or that thyroid disorders lower your metabolic rate causing weight gain? Correcting hormonal imbalances will give your body the proper tools to address stubborn weight gain.
