Metabolic syndrome is brought about by an imbalance in a woman’s hormones. Learn more about the causes of metabolic syndrome in women, the symptoms of metabolic syndrome, and how BioTE® Medical can help you below.
Metabolic syndrome is a combination of traits that increase the likelihood of diabetes, stroke and heart disease. These traits include high triglycerides, raised blood sugar levels, high blood pressure and obesity.
In metabolic syndrome, large waist circumference obesity is the type of obesity referenced. Hormonal imbalance, particularly in the form of excessive estrogen production, can be a large contributor to metabolic syndrome. Estrogen produced by excess fat cells can noticeably increase estrogen production. This can affect a woman’s physical and emotional health in numerous ways, including putting her at greater risk of heart disease.
Metabolic syndrome shows very few early symptoms outside of obesity. Common indicators of more advanced metabolic syndrome include high blood pressure and Type II Diabetes.
Lifestyle changes are typically somewhat inefficient at fighting metabolic syndrome, however, changes like anti-diabetic medication, quitting smoking, blood glucose monitoring, modifying your diet, and physical exercise can aid in the self-care of metabolic syndrome for women. Vegetarian based diets have also been known to help keep metabolic syndrome under control.
What Is BHRT?
A wide variety of issues brought about by hormonal imbalances in women and men can be relieved with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT. BHRT is different from traditional hormone replacement therapy because the hormones BHRT uses are chemically identical to the ones naturally produced ones found. Additionally, BHRT also uses plant-based hormones - different from traditional HRT, which uses animal-derived hormones.
While unbalanced hormones can cause weight gain, BHRT may be able to assist patients in reducing extreme weight gain by balancing hormone levels within the body, effectively treating the cause of the issue.
