Many different hormones play a role in weight control and metabolism. A shift in hormone levels can affect the delicate balance needed to maintain a healthy weight. In addition, obvious factors such as food intake, exercise, and lifestyle (e.g., stress, smoking, and alcohol consumption) also affect your weight, both directly and indirectly, because hormone production and function are also influenced by these other factors.
With all the complexities involved with the metabolism and weight control, it is important to partner with your healthcare practitioner to determine the best approach for achieving a weight that is right for you.
