Improve Testosterone Levels with Weight Loss


Reviewed by Kimberly Cabe, FNP-BC of Forum Health Rochester Hills

A large collection of studies show that lower testosterone levels in men tends to correlate with excess weight. In one recent study, men who suffered from low testosterone levels were also found to cope with inferior health and an overall lower quality of life when compared with men who had optimal hormone levels.

Hormonal decline interfere with many aspects of everyday life, including complications with sexual health and the development of sleep disorders. This is something that many men have to cope with during andropause, and is an especially high risk for those who struggle with their weight.

Losing Weight Improves Testosterone Levels

If you are struggling with hormone imbalance and are overweight, then losing weight may reduce or even correct some of the health concerns you may currently be experiencing. This is true for men and women, though especially for men struggling with low testosterone.

General diet and exercise is one clearly proven method of losing the weight. Studies have shown that men with a highly excessive amount of excess weight tend to show the best results for testosterone increase after losing a significant amount of weight in a medical weight loss program. Men who have had this surgery tend to not only show the best results in testosterone level increases, but also in overall body mass reduction.

Anti-Aging Support with BHRT

In addition to weight loss support, hormone replacement therapy can be a great form of support for men and women hoping to overcome hormone imbalance. One form of hormone therapy replacement is bioidentical hormone treatment, which tends to show positive results in terms of both hormone levels and overall health.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves injecting hormones into the body that are chemically identical to those your body naturally produces. Because of their identical chemical structure, the hormone therapy replacement often provides drastic improvements in the health and well-being of adults who undergo treatment.

When coupled with a regular diet and exercise plan, bioidentical hormone treatment can be an effective way for men to increase testosterone levels and regain a higher standard of health. BHRT is also able to support women during menopause, offering relief from common symptoms like hot flashes and uncontrollable mood swings. The treatment plan can provide quicker results for those who are looking for more motivation to exercise and replenish their own testosterone levels.
