Hormone Replacement Therapy for Weight Loss

Although powerful, hormones exist within our body in relatively small amounts when compared to other elements like blood and oxygen. But despite being so small, these naturally occurring chemicals are extremely powerful and carry the messages that drive many of the functions and metabolic processes that our body performs.

Some hormones, known as precursor hormones, have a primary function to begin a chain of events that lead to the production of other hormones that signal other systems of our body. They initiate the chain a reaction that eventually leads to performing a final function. Such precursor hormones can be thought of as “steppingstones.” Our bodies need them to pave the way to function as it should.

What are Hormones?

Scientists have identified over 50 different hormones in the human body. These hormones, together with the tissues and glands that produce them, are collectively known as our endocrine system. This system is a vital part of the complex machine that is the human body. Hormones control many metabolic processes in our bodies, including:

  • Metabolic rate
  • Thermoregulation (controlling our internal temperature)
  • Homeostasis (keeping systems in balance)
  • Blood pressure
  • Insulin and sugar metabolism
  • Fluid and electrolyte balances
  • Growth and development
  • Puberty
  • Sexual development
  • Human reproduction
  • Sleeping and waking
  • General mood

If you understand the human body, you may know that it is important that our various processes and systems work intimately together. Because of this, we may only be aware of a single symptom that we are feeling. But, because of the complex interactions of our hormones, it is possible the symptom we feel could represent multiple things being out of balance. It’s important to understand that with just one important part of our body out of balance may lead to a maelstrom of different symptoms that could cause pain or discomfort.

Where Are Hormones Produced?

Hormones are produced in the endocrine system which is made up of a series of multiple glands. These glands are tissues that produce one or more different substances. They can produce hormones, or things like digestive enzymes, saliva, sweat, or tears.

The major glands in the human endocrine system include:

  • Hypothalamus
  • Pituitary gland
  • Pineal gland
  • Thyroid
  • Parathyroid
  • Adrenal
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries (in women)
  • Testes (in men)

There are also non-endocrine system organs and tissues that release hormones. These include:

  • Adipose tissue (fat)
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Gastrointestinal tract
  • Placenta

Because hormones are so powerful, they are, basically, the primary drivers of our bodies and their systems. An underlying problem in any of these glands, or with any of the hormones they produce, can lead to cascading effects that ripple throughout the body.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

Because there are so many hormones that provide such a wide array of functions in our bodies, there are various symptoms that have been associated with hormone imbalances. Some of the most prevalent include:

  • Unexplained weight gain or loss
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Depression or a loss of sense of self-worth
  • Anxiety
  • Increased cholesterol levels
  • Irregular menstruation
  • Loss of libido or inability to function sexually
  • Dry, coarse skin and hair
  • Brittle fingernails
  • Inability to tolerate warm or cold temperatures

How Can Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Lead to Weight Loss?

Unexpected weight loss or gain is one of the most common symptoms. It is a prevalent symptom and complaint that is associated with various hormonal imbalances. Hormones control your metabolism and sexual function, both of which can have drastic effects on your body weight. Some of the hormonal imbalances that can directly cause significant weight gain include:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cushing’s syndrome
  • Menopause (women)
  • Andropause (men)

Menopause in women and andropause in men are expected to happen once we age beyond a certain threshold. Recently, many Western societies have been finding men and women suffering through the effects of these reductions in sex hormones at much earlier ages. They are also finding levels far lower than they should be at certain ages.

There are some unnatural causes that could be contributing to the dramatic decline of these critical sex hormones, including:

  • Stress or overwork
  • Lack of sleep
  • Poor diet and lack of nutrition
  • Lack of exercise
  • Overmedication
