How hormonal balance can affect body composition and overall health

If you have been hitting the gym hardcore and monitoring every bite of food you eat to bring down your weight to a healthier level but have hit a wall, you may find yourself frustrated with the process. At Atlantic Gastroenterology of Brooklyn, New York, we see many patients who struggle with weight management and are seeking solutions. It is critical to know that one aspect of health that might be counteracting your results at the gym and in the kitchen may be hormones.

Hormonal Balance in Brooklyn NY Area

How does one’s hormonal balance affect their body composition?

The hormones in your body are often considered the “messengers” of the body, passing chemicals through the bloodstream and regulating certain processes, such as metabolism and growth. An imbalance in these hormones may cause a noticeable impact on the entire body. This makes it difficult for some patients to lose or maintain a healthy body weight over time. If you have struggled with weight loss or maintenance, you may be dealing with a hormonal imbalance impacting your overall body composition–and, sometimes, your overall health and wellness.

What hormones play a role in your body composition?

  • Insulin
  • Cortisol
  • Testosterone
  • Ghrelin
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Leptin
  • Adiponectin

How can I get the progress I am looking to achieve?

If you have found yourself at a standstill or plateau with weight loss, it might be time to work with a medical professional to find out if any of the above hormones or any other medical conditions may be hindering the results you are looking to achieve. Slow progress, even when you are doing everything right, may indicate an underlying issue keeping you from reaching your goals.

Are you ready to get your hormones in balance and work with a provider to achieve proper weight management?

Staying at a healthy weight is vital to one’s overall health, and the combination of hormonal imbalances with poor weight management can increase one’s risk for a wide range of common health problems.
