Hormonal imbalances can cause a person’s metabolism to slow down and trigger weight gain – in fact, weight gain can be almost unavoidable when hormones are out of wack. During andropause (also known as “male menopause”), the changes in a man’s body that occur due to a very gradual decline in testosterone as he ages can begin to cause health problems like weight gain. Fortunately, HRT treatments, combined with the physician-guided diet, allow you to lose weight while going through andropause.
Hormone replacement therapy for men is a safe and effective solution to hormonal imbalances that cause weight gain. Our experts administer and monitor treatment plans that work to stop weight gain and facilitate weight loss.
If low levels of testosterone are the cause of your weight gain, hormone replacement therapy may be the solution for you. Global Life Rejuvenation weight loss doctors have successfully used HRT to help men lose weight. Contact us to meet a physician from our HRT company and get started today.
The Role of Hormones in Weight Gain
High cortisol levels, in conjunction with low testosterone levels, appear to trigger an increase in body fat, especially around the midsection. Excess body fat can actually cause testosterone to convert into estrogen at a higher-than-normal rate, resulting in an even greater imbalance in hormones.
Weight gain as a result of andropause may be more severe when stress levels are high. Extended periods of stress elevate cortisol levels. This reaction puts your body in “survival mode,” causing the generation of fat cells as a mechanism to store calories and energy. High levels of cortisol also increase appetite as an unconscious strategy to increase fat tissue. Weight gain during andropause is often a natural consequence of a cortisol imbalance.
When cortisol levels are too high, the body’s testosterone levels become depleted. When men go through andropause, testosterone levels are already declining. Low testosterone is also a known contributor of fatigue, which may translate to reduced physical activity, another contributor to weight gain in men.
Additionally, thyroid disorders may also play a role in sudden weight gain in men. Low levels of growth hormone (GH) often contribute to andropausal weight gain due to a decrease in the body’s metabolic rate. Hormone-related loss of muscle mass may also contribute to weight gain – with less muscle, the body burns fewer calories and stores extra calories consumed as fat.
Global Life’s Weight Loss Program
HRT for weight loss can have a dramatically positive impact on weight loss and your ability to keep weight off. At Global Life Rejuvenation, we help you achieve natural weight loss through hormone replacement therapy by balancing testosterone, cortisol, estrogen, HGH and thyroid hormones.
Global Life Rejuvenation uses hormone therapy as the first step in treating weight gain associated with andropause. In addition, we provide a tailored nutrition plan, vitamins for weight loss and an exercise routine as part of a comprehensive weight loss program.
Is HRT Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, the goal of this treatment is not to replace someone’s hormone level to what they once had. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to supplement or to help your body naturally produce hormones that it no longer makes as a result of aging. By doing this, we alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance and help you feel better.
HRT for men is completely safe when taken under the guidance of an expert practitioner. Among men, HRT has been proven to help prevent cardiovascular risks and type 2 diabetes. We don’t want anyone to suffer from hormone-related weight gain when there’s a much better option available.
Our weight loss program makes male weight loss a reality, not just a dream. Contact Global Life Rejuvenation online or call us at (866) 793-9933 and learn more about how hormone therapy can help you lose weight during andropause.
