Hormone Replacement Therapy

Do you feel like you are losing muscle mass, stamina or just unable to get rid of fat pockets?

Everyone’s hormone levels naturally decrease with age. Weight gain, diminished sex drive, loss of energy, irritability, difficulty sleeping, decreased mental clarity, and loss of muscle strength are all signs and symptoms of decreased or imbalanced hormone levels.

While it’s normal for your hormone production to slow down with age, why should you live with the effects? Instead of settling with “you’re just getting older,” replenishing your hormones can help you feel like ‘you’ again!

How do hormones affect your weight?

Your body produces several hormones that play a key role in actively regulating your weight. When these hormone levels drop below normal, you gain weight – and losing that weight becomes a struggle.

Some of these key hormones connected to your weight include:


Estrogen directly influences your metabolism and weight; it helps regulate your glucose and lipid metabolism. When your estrogen levels decline so does your metabolic rate, and your body will begin to store fat, leading to weight gain.

When your estrogen levels fall, this also influenes your insulin resistance, which will signal to your body to store more fat. In addition, this affects where existing fat settles in your body, causing an accumulation of belly fat even if your overall weight didn’t increase.


Similarly, there is an association between testosterone deficiency and weight gain – a lack of testosterone can cause fat to accumulate in the abdomen leading to the appearance of a gut/belly fat. Additionally, being overweight leads to low testosterone levels in men.

There are multiple factors that can lead to a depletion in hormones, and even if you are overall healthy you can still end up with low hormone levels simply due to the natural aging process. While the most common example is estrogen levels dropping due to menopause, men will also steadily lose testosterone starting anywhere from ages 30-40.
