Weight Gain In Men

Weight gain in men has a strong connection to Male Hormone Imbalance Symptoms. The relationship between weight gain and Andropause is said to have a “reversible” cause and effect relationship as weight gain can cause Male Hormone Imbalance or be the result of it. While decreasing a man’s muscle mass, low testosterone will also cause his body fat to increase, particularly belly fat as men are born with more fat cells naturally occurring around the abdomen than women. More than a third of all men (38.7%) are considered overweight compared to only 26.5% of women. Another 35% of men are clinically obese. An increase in body fat enhances Male Hormonal Imbalance leading to his body changing testosterone into estrogen. It’s really a vicious cycle.

The Causes of Weight Gain Related to Hormone Imbalance

The main culprit in the relationship between testosterone and weight gain in men is once again the hormone cortisol. When cortisol levels are boosted in men as a result of several

Andropause-related symptoms, their metabolic rate decreases, their production of fat cells increases and their appetite is heightened. Weight gain naturally follows. The cycle continues and gets even worse as the additional cortisol levels continue to reduce testosterone production in males and more increased weight gain.

Male weight gain can also be caused by other medical conditions. Unhealthy levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) or a thyroid condition like hypothyroidism can contribute to slowing a man’s metabolic rate and desire to perform physical activity. Medications, stress and a lack of sleep can also contribute to or cause male weight gain. Of course, nutrition and motivation will always play significant roles in male weight gain, but in a lot of cases, men may begin to gain weight without any unhealthy changes in diet or decrease in their amount of physical activity. For patients experiencing this, medical weight loss could be the best option.

Bioidentical Testosterone Therapy for Muscle Loss

This therapy has many benefits, including preventing atrophy and mass loss for those who wish to increase their testosterone levels, which are vital to muscle growth and maintenance. TRT therapy helps gain mass because it increases the production of testosterone; therefore, the muscles can be availed of more growth stimuli and maintained. This therapy also enhances the endurance capacity of patients in that they can take up physical activities to gain mass easily. TRT increases body bone density and decreases the risk of fractures from physical activities. TRT goes beyond the physical benefits because it can improve mood and motivation to continue exercising.

In cases like this Male Hormone Imbalance will usually be linked to weight gain. Bringing balance to the hormones in the male body will have a huge impact on a man’s ability to lose or maintain his weight. With testosterone, cortisol, estrogen, and other hormones in the male body in complete balance, weight loss for men can become a reality.

Lifestyle, nutritional, and exercise changes may be a way for a man to reverse his weight gain, but for many, it may require a visit to a licensed Male Rejuvenation and Health Facility staffing qualified physicians. When you visit a NuMale medical center, our doctors can have a man’s hormone levels tested to help determine if Male Hormone Imbalance is at the root of their weight gain. Results usually come on the same visit.

Lifestyle Interventions

Fighting off muscle loss and keeping Sarcopenia at bay requires regular workout routines that force your muscles to work against resistance. Exercise such as weight lifting or resistance training (for instance, pushups or resistance training) are recommended. Making wise lifestyle decisions such as not smoking or drinking too much booze, getting enough restful sleep, and managing stress effectively can have a significant effect on hormone levels and muscle health. Combining lifestyle changes, proper eating, and possible medical interventions such as bioidentical testosterone therapy to lessen Sarcopenia’s effects can have great success in lessening its severity.
