What is a healthy weight?

Most doctors and medical staff use the body mass index (BMI) to gauge whether your weight is normal or if you are under or overweight. In general, the guidelines are as follows:

  • Less than 18.5: underweight

  • Between 18.5 and 24.9: normal

  • Between 25 and 29.9: overweight

  • 30 or higher: obese

It is easy to see where you stand. The internet is full of BMI calculators. Simply plug in your height and weight to find your BMI number.

What problems are associated with being overweight?

If you are overweight or obese, you are at increased risk for several serious health issues, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes, Stroke, High blood pressure, Sleep apnea, Heart disease, Certain cancers, Depression, and Anxiety.

In addition to health problems, being overweight can affect your quality of life.

How can hormone therapy help with weight loss?

When your hormones are out of balance or your body is not producing enough, the body functions necessary to lose weight are impaired. Conditions related to hormone disorders that can interfere with weight loss include:

  • Slow metabolism, Insulin resistance, Thyroid disorders, Elevated cortisol levels

Once your hormones are replenished and balanced, weight loss comes more easily.
