What do hormone pellets and weight loss have to do with you? Well, is your weight slowing you down this summer? Is your weight bad enough that your doctor’s concerned you may develop diabetes?
Carrying around extra weight in the summer months is no fun. You’re embarrassed to go out in a bathing suit. Dragging the extra weight up a mountain at higher elevations is exhausting. And sometimes you just can’t keep up with all of the things you used to enjoy when you were more fit.
Not only is this frustrating and emotionally debilitating, but it can also have devastating effects on your physical health. Especially if your doctor has proclaimed you “pre-diabetic” or suggested you need to start taking action so that you don’t develop diabetes.
To top that off, you may be seriously flustered because it seems like you’ve tried everything to lose weight, and it’s just not working. We have a question for you… have you tried hormone pellets for weight loss?
Hormone pellets and weight loss
Your hormones play an essential role in how your body functions. It’s natural for hormone levels to fall out of balance as you age. If one hormone level goes out of balance, it affects your other hormone levels. Your sex hormones, in particular, can affect your ability to lose weight and your inability to stop gaining it. Sex hormones contribute to various bodily functions, including:
- Maintaining strong bones
- Creating and maintaining lean mass
- Protecting against disease
- Fat distribution
- Reduction of fat storage
- Mood regulation
- Energy regulation
- Supporting a healthy sex drive
When you stop producing the right amount of hormones that your body needs, symptoms like weight gain and fatigue begin to crop up. Who wants to exercise when you feel tired all the time?
One tiny hormone pellet can get you started on your weight-loss journey!
The solution to weight gain, or difficulty losing weight caused by hormone imbalance, is to fill our body back up with the optimal levels of hormones. This can be achieved by using Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) delivery by pellet therapy. Pellet therapy delivers hormones in a way that’s more convenient and sometimes more effective than pills, creams, or injections.
A medical professional inserts pellets approximately the size of a grain of rice into your skin. These pellets release hormones consistently over a period of several months – without you having to do a thing. Most men and women who use BHRT notice a significant improvement in energy and mood, increased lean body mass, and a reduction in fat.
Hormone pellet therapy combined with proper diet and exercise can make it much easier to lose weight and keep it off. You feel the effects of pellet therapy within a few days to a few weeks.
BHRT and diabetes
Waist circumference and central body fat are risk factors for diabetes. Using hormone pellets for weight loss can reduce both your waist and body fat. And when used in conjunction with other lifestyle changes, BHRT pellet therapy can also decrease insulin resistance. For instance, testosterone has been shown to decrease insulin resistance in both male and female patients. And post-menopausal women who use estradiol and progesterone also have a decrease in insulin resistance.
