What You Lose In Hormones, You Make Up In Weight! Menopause Weight Gain
study sponsored by NIH it has been confirmed that the hormonal shifts in menopause predispose women to gain of belly fat as well as at least a ten pound weight gain. The weight of menopause then increases cardiovascular disease and pre-diabetic states. The physiology of fat changes towards fat accumulation, and only active dieting and exercise can reverse these otherwise inevitable pounds around your waist. At Women's Health Practice we say that weight management and more complete knowledge of one's metabolic status through body fat measurements and evaluation of your markers of inflammation and insulin control, can allow you and your gyno to help you proactively head this weight gain off. But if you do gain, there are many new solutions to weight loss including many new medications approved for longer term weight loss management.
