Is Menopause Causing Weight Gain?

Is Menopause Causing Weight Gain?

Menopause is a very natural, and very overwhelming phase of life for many women. When women enter menopause, they often experience many significant hormonal changes. These hormonal changes and imbalances can cause mood swings, hot flashes and for many women—weight gain.

While menopause-related weight can be frustrating, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that you can do in order to help curb this weight gain during menopause while also helping you safely and effectively lose weight. This is all possible thanks to BHRT. This type of hormone treatment can help prevent belly fat from forming in women when they decide to start taking this hormone before or during menopause. Research has also found that women who take these hormones have less visceral fat than women who don’t take it.

Hormone therapies can also help fight insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and other common menopause symptoms like vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and dry sweats.

So, how exactly do you start BHRT to help with your menopausal weight gain?

First, you need to start with a hormone test to determine what your hormone levels are and whether or not you are experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Then a doctor can prescribe you with a BHRT treatment, which can be administered through injections, patches, pellets or creams. BHRT uses hormones that are chemically identical to the ones that are already produced in the body. This means it is easier for the system to accept these hormones, without serious side effects.

In addition to helping you with hormone treatments, LT Men’s Clinic can also help you with an ongoing weight loss plan that can help you get rid of this unwanted weight or fat and keep it off.
