A growing body of research indicates that there may be a strong connection between andropause related hormonal imbalances and weight gain in men. High cortisol and low testosterone levels may contribute to an increase in body fat, particularly in the mid-section, and reduce muscle mass in men. The body fat may further complicate the hormonal imbalance by converting testosterone into estrogen.
Weight gain in men combined with muscle loss means more weight to carry and less muscle to carry it with, leading to fatigue and lower energy levels. Compounding pharmacy solutions can help to restore the hormonal balance in men, and in effect, address the problem of weight gain arising due to such imbalance.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) provides Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for men in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
High stress or cortisol levels in a man’s body will lead to weight gain. When the higher levels of cortisol exist for a longer period, the body will activate its survival mode and induce the production of fat cells apart from reducing metabolic activity to store food for later use. The cortisol levels will also increase appetite in order to procure extra energy. Male weight gain will follow as a consequence.
High cortisol levels will also work to reduce the levels of testosterone, which is already impacted by andropause. Low testosterone results in low energy and fatigue, which will reduce a man’s physical activity and further contribute to weight gain. Thyroid disorders and lower levels of the human growth hormone (HGH) may also add to weight gain by way of mitigating the body’s metabolic rate.
Safe, proven and effective solutions in compounding pharmacy are available to address the symptoms of andropause, and effectively treat problems such as weight gain in men. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be used to correct the testosterone, cortisol, HGH, thyroid, and other hormone levels in men to an optimal point. Once these levels are improved, it will create the foundation for a man to achieve significant weight loss in a sustainable manner.
For effective weight loss outcomes can be achieved when the treatment provider combines BHRT for men with a targeted supplement regimen, nutrition plans, and physical exercise. A combination of these approaches will not make male weight loss a reality, but also contribute to the improvement of overall health and well-being of the man.
