Low Testosterone and Weight Gain

Weight gain is one of the most common symptoms of low testosterone. HRT for men can help.

Hormone replacement therapy and weight loss

Losing weight becomes much more difficult as you get older. No matter how much you diet and exercise, the weight always tends to come back. You’re not alone, studies show 65% to 95% of people who lose weight regain it, sometimes more, within a few months or years. The good news, it’s not your fault. Your hormones are to blame.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men is the sustainable way to lose weight and keep it off!

Does low testosterone cause weight gain?

  • Weight gain is one of the most common symptoms of low testosterone (low T) and a hormone imbalance. Aging causes a decrease in testosterone, thyroid, and estradiol levels. This hormone imbalance can lead to weight gain, especially belly fat.
  • Hormone replacement therapy is the best tool to turn back the clock and stop andropause. Get your hormones back to the optimum levels of your youth.
  • With bioidentical testosterone and thyroid replacement therapies, we’re providing a real hormone identical to those produced in your body. These hormones can help you burn fat, increase muscle, and finally have the energy to make the life changes to improve your health.

How testosterone levels affect weight management

  • Testosterone promotes lean muscle growth and reduces dangerous visceral fat.
  • Too much visceral fat (internal belly fat) knocks down testosterone levels and increases other hormones that make it even harder to lose weight.
  • Testosterone deficient men gain fat faster and lose muscle quicker than those with optimal hormones. Muscle is more than twice as efficient at burning calories than fat. If you build more muscle, you burn more fat.
  • Testosterone improves your focus and motivation, giving you the drive to make health-conscious choices.

How your thyroid affects weight management

Proper thyroid levels improve your metabolism! The thyroid plays a vital role in controlling your metabolism. If it is not producing sufficient thyroid hormones, your metabolism won’t work correctly.

The thyroid affects other hormones, including testosterone! The thyroid helps regulate the balance of your other hormones. Therefore, without proper thyroid levels, you will not see the best results from your Testosterone Therapy! Male Excel treats your thyroid and testosterone levels in tandem, so your hormones become truly optimized. 

With thyroid therapy, our doctors can guide you to an effective weight loss program that will also improve many other areas of your life:

  • Say goodbye to fatigue
  • Increase weight loss
  • Say goodbye to insomnia
  • Improved memory
  • Improved mood
  • Healthy hair and skin

TRT: the sustainable solution for male weight loss

Hormone replacement therapy is an important tool to help you reach your weight loss goals. However, to see the best possible results, diet and exercise are also essential. 

The three-legged stool approach to weight loss

Suppose you picture a three-legged stool with diet, exercise, and hormones as the legs. You need all three of these elements for ‘long-term’ weight loss to be successful. If any one of these legs is missing, you will simply fall off the stool.

The added energy, motivation, and drive that increased testosterone gives you makes these lifestyle changes finally achievable. 

Not only that but any results you see from your diet and exercise will be magnified tenfold by healthy hormone levels.
