Let’s Talk About Hormones
There are three major hormonal players contributing to your weight. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas which breaks food into glucose (sugars) as it digests. What it doesn’t use is stored as fat. When the body isn’t producing enough insulin, you gain weight and put yourself at risk for conditions like type 2 diabetes .
Triiodothyronine and thyroxine are produced in the thyroid gland and can have a significant impact on the rate of your metabolism (as well as a wide variety of other bodily functions). If your thyroid gets sluggish , the production of these hormones slows and drags your metabolism down with it.
Hormones for Weight Loss
Hormone replacement therapy is a procedure in which the levels of imbalanced hormones’ are measured and then corrected. Balancing your hormones can kick start the body’s metabolism and restore its abilities to properly break down sugars and eliminate excess fat.
