Is a Hormone Imbalance Causing Weight Gain?
Often times when we approach middle age, we’re faced with weight gain. Most women or men may willingly accept this is just part of the natural aging process. However, other factors may be at fault for weight gain -including hormone imbalance.
Hormones are a natural part of our body that are produced by endocrine glands. They exist in our blood in the form of a chemical. The hormones travel through our bloodstream to vital organs and tissues with important ‘messages’ for the organs on how to function.
When these messages are not received clearly, we experience symptoms such as
-decrease in metabolism
-sudden weight gain
-anxiety and depression
A recent report from Medical News Today* explained findings from subjects with 10% weight gain during menopause. It was discovered increase in weight was due to other factors than just menopause. Hormonal imbalances were evidenced by increased volume and fat in the abdominal area. The results indicated As we get older, even a slight disruption in our hormone levels can cause stubborn belly fat to stick. If you suspect that you have a hormonal imbalance, then a laboratory test will give you and your physician at Dr. Rogers Centers insight into the best hormone replacement therapy treatment customized for you. Our clinical medical staff is trained in hormone therapy and identifying misfiring of hormones.

Weight Loss Clinic in San Antonio
According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition*, less than 20% of overweight individuals are successful at long-term weight loss. During a landmark research study 80% of the men and women who initially lost over 10% of their body fat had gained their lost weight back.
At Dr. Rogers Centers, we understand how frustrating this can be for someone who has experienced yo-yo dieting. Our focus is not only to help you lose weight, but keep it off for good through behavior, education, and accountability.
Dr. Tamyra Rogers is often asked, “What is the best diet?” and her answer is, “the diet you can stay on.” While it may seem obvious, planning for success has many layers. It includes understanding how to make wise food choices at home, in social settings, and at work. It also involves knowing how to work out effectively, for what duration and intensity.
Our medical weight loss programs include low carbohydrate meal plans, monitored lab work, weekly visits with a nutritionist and lipotropic injections. Our fitness experts also take into consideration V02 function through a specific test that monitors your optimal metabolic exercise performance. We feel this knowledge helps you work out smarter, not harder.
