Why does aging cause weight gain?
Aging is often associated with a progressive increase in weight due to loss of hormones, loss of nutrients, insomnia, increasing insulin levels, inactivity, and increasing cortisol levels all leading to a slower metabolism.
There is a strong connection with the loss of hormones in men and women contributing to the midlife expanding waistline.
Estradiol has a direct effect on metabolic rate. As estradiol falls and estrone increase, women will begin to gain fat around their middle.
Testosterone in men and women affect the ability to build muscle. As levels fall, the ratio of lean muscle to fat decreases resulting in a lower metabolic rate.
Cortisol, the stress hormone remodels the shape of the body. It stores fat around the middle as if it is preparing for a battle that never comes.
Thyroid has profound affects on metabolism. It is quite common to see changes in thyroid hormones as we age.
Growth Hormone replacement in elderly men have shown decreases in body fat by 14% and in women 8%. The FDA approves Growth Hormone for Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency Disorder.
Obesity increases the risk for all age related diseases including Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and cancers. Fat cells are known to increase inflammation, a major mechanism of disease.
How can the Center For Age Management help?
Our program will balance your hormones, determine your resting metabolic rate, thus the number of calories required to loose weight. We will come up with a very specific eating plan that works with your lifestyle.
Ion Testing is performed to detect nutritional deficiencies that contribute to metabolic blocks. Cravings often undermine the best efforts and are driven by an imbalance in neurotransmitters. We have added a specific program to balance neurotransmitters, thus assisting you in your weight management goals.
In addition, our well trained staff will also recommend an exercise program that’s right for you.
