Hormonal imbalance is when your hormones are out of whack. Either your body is not producing enough of a specific hormone, or producing too much of one. Having a hormonal imbalance is common, and happens a lot as we age and it can happen to both men and women.
Hormones help us control the way our body responds to certain stimuli - like how we digest the food we eat, how often we exercise, if we get enough sleep, and if we are too stressed. All of these factors can play a serious role in keeping your body at a healthy weight. If your body is having trouble breaking down the food you eat, your metabolism will start working more slowly. If you stop exercising, your body will lose lean muscle mass and gain fat. If you don’t get enough sleep or if you are under a lot of stress, your body will not be able to recover and heal. All of these factors will cause you to gain unwanted weight.
It's always a great idea to get tested to see if your hormones are out of balance. Having a hormonal imbalance is easy to treat, yet if left alone can cause a number of unwanted side effects, including weight gain. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is an alternative therapy to help with anti-aging health and longevity, as well as getting your hormones back in balance. At Physicians Age Management Centers, we can help you get back on track with HRT and weight loss services. It's what we do every day, and our specialty.
