Weight Loss in Men and Women

Posted on 08/29/2018 by Balanced Medical Solutions

Approximately 69% or 7 out of every 10 adults are overweight or obese, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES, 2009-2010)

Obesity rates are even higher in individuals over 40 because their bodies start to produce less vital hormones that regulate metabolism, and which help maintain and build lean muscle mass. This is why many older individuals do not get the weight-loss results they expect from diet and exercise alone.  Individuals over forty who have tried diet and exercise and are not getting results should see a hormone balancing specialist to get their hormone levels checked. If it is found that there is a hormonal imbalance, hormone replacement therapies, such as Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, Progesterone Replacement Therapy (PRT) or our Anti-Aging Therapy could prove to be very effective and beneficial.

Being overweight or obese is not just a cosmetic inconvenience – it can cause or exacerbate other health complications, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain cancers.  Thus, it is important that those who are suffering from weight gain not give up when diet and exercise fail. Rather, they should seek the help of medical experts who can analyze if there is a physical root cause to their weight gain and offer effective and safe treatment options.
