Many of us know that maintaining a healthy weight can be difficult despite our best efforts with diet and exercise. What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the hidden culprit sabotaging your hard work to stay slim.

WHAT'S THE CONNECTION?
Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat. As we age, shifting hormones complicated by chronic stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, etc., trigger numerous symptoms of imbalance including unexplained weight gain. The good news is that there is a simple, at home test that can identify whether you’re one of those thousands affected.

HORMONE TRIGGERS TO WEIGHT GAIN
Women with hidden hormone imbalances often can’t lose weight as easily as they have in the past. Or they now have immovable belly fat they never had before.
It’s important to know that weigh gain caused by hormone imbalances can occur at any age. In younger premenopausal women 20 to 30 years old, irregular cycle or lack ovulation can lead to imbalances and premenstrual weight gain, fluid retention and sugar cravings made worse by stress, yo-yo diets, birth control, etc.
Premenopausal woman 40 to 50 years old experience a “roller coaster” of symptoms such as weight gain, belly fat and sugar cravings cause by fluctuating hormone levels in the years leading up to menopause.
In menopausal women 50+ years old who no longer ovulate, progesterone production plummets. This creates a surplus of estrogen- a condition of estrogen dominance- that promotes weight gain in the hips and thighs, water retention and sluggish metabolism. Postmenopausal women often mark the end of periods with the beginning of their real struggles with weight.
Men with hormone imbalance often notice that body fat is taking the place of lean muscle as testosterone and DHEA levels decline around age 40. The more pounds gained, the more testosterone turns into estrogen in fat cells, with further drops in metabolism.
Related imbalances of cortisol and insulin in both sexes can impair thyroid function and raise risks for metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
