Weight Gain In Menopause?
Dec 22, 2021
Most of us, male and female, gain weight as we age, but in menopause, we see a brisk uptick in weight gain, especially around the midsection. The hormonal changes seen with menopause cause a different distribution of body fat, more in the abdomen and less in the hips and thighs.
Many women associate the use of hormone therapy with weight gain, but the data show that it is menopause itself that causes weight gain, and those who use appropriate doses of hormone therapy actually gain less weight than menopausal women who do not.
Preventing and reversing weight gain in menopause involves a multi-faceted approach, and at Menopause Solutions, we help guide you through this process.
