Bioidentical Hormones for Women

Weight gain in menopausal women

Maintaining proper weight is a challenge for most women, and the older you get, the more difficult keeping weight off can be.

 

Virtually all women experience weight gain as they age, and hormonal imbalances during perimenopause and menopause play an important role in triggering weight gain in menopausal women.

 

The average woman gains 10 to 15 pounds starting in perimenopause. This menopausal weight gain is often gradual. Women who experience surgical menopause -- hysterectomy -- tend to gain the weight at a faster pace. Menopausal weight gain, as a result of the operation of the androgen hormone, tends to be located on the abdomen as opposed to the hips, thighs, or bottom.

 

Hormones and weight gain are closely related. If a menopausal woman's hormones are not balanced, weight gain is almost inevitable -- especially if too much cortisol or too little progesterone, testosterone or estrogen is present.

 

While good nutrition, regular exercise and lifestyle changes can play important roles in weight loss, balanced hormones are often the key to success in maintaining a healthy weight.

What Causes weight gain in menopausal women?

Hormone imbalances and menopausal weight gain are intimately related: most menopausal weight gain could be more properly referred to as hormonal weight gain.

 

Hormone fluctuations related to menopause directly impact appetite, how a woman's body stores fat, and metabolic rate.

 

Estrogen levels diminish during menopause. Decreased production of estrogen causes the body to look for other estrogen sources. One of these alternative sources of estrogen is fat, so the body increases production of fat cells in order to increase its estrogen resources. Result: weight gain.

 

Estrogen also plays a role in insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is associated with an inability to experience weight loss during menopause. Insulin resistance is when a woman's body converts a disproportinate part of her caloric intake into fat, and is an serious effect of estrogen imbalance.

 

Progesterone levels also decrease markedly during menopause. Progesterone's role in menopausal weight gain is less straightforward -- low levels of progesterone do not directly cause menopausal weight gain. Instead, low levels of progesterone cause water retention and bloating. Result: another form of weight gain.

 

Testosterone also plays a role in menopausal weight gain. Testosterone helps build and maintain muscles in women as well as men. Muscles burn calories, and are associated with higher metabolic rates and, of course, greater physical activity. Testosterone decreases with the onset of menopause causing loss of muscle mass, reduction in calories burned, and usually less physical movement. Result: weight gain.

 

Chronic stress also contributes to menopausal weight gain. Stress puts your body into Survival Mode where it begins to store calories as fat since stress hormones -- specifically high levels of cortisol -- are telling it to be prepared not to eat for awhile. Calories stored as fat: weight gain.

Medical treatments for weight gain

Menopausal weight gain caused by unbalanced hormones does not have to be a part of your life.

 

One of the most effective treatments for menopausal weight gain is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy. While nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle are all important to maintaining proper weight, when your hormones are imbalanced the battle can be unnecessarily difficult.
