Have you noticed that your weight loss journey has drastically slowed down – even though you are still doing all the right things? Are you also experiencing constant fatigue, trouble sleeping, and a lack of focus? If so, you might be suffering from a hormone imbalance. But don’t worry! This is definitely something that we can adjust! Hormonal imbalances can actually make weight loss and sleep extremely difficult while also increasing your stress and lowering your sex drive. Here at Beach Medical, we want to make sure that we properly address all facets of your life in order to aid in your weight loss journey. And that means testing your hormone levels.
At all of our Beach Medical locations, we offer two different methods of hormone testing – HRT blood draws and ZRT Salvia testing kits. Both forms of testing look at your estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. In women, a hormonal imbalance can lead to mid-abdominal weight gain, night sweats, mood swings, lethargy, and lower sex drive. A hormonal imbalance in men is associated with a lower sex drive, depressed mood, fatigue, and a decrease in muscle development. As we age, our hormone levels increase and decrease across the board, causing an array of issues.
Once we receive your lab results, our providers will analyze and discuss them with you in order to create a plan of action that best fits your needs. Because everyone’s hormone levels differ, no two plans with be exactly the same. At Beach Medical Weight Loss, our goal is to help you on your weight loss journey and sometimes that means maintaining proper hormone levels as well as nutrition and exercise goals!
