What role do hormones play in weight loss?


This hormone is essential for shuttling glucose out of the bloodstream and into cells for energy. However, chronically high insulin levels promote fat storage, particularly around the belly. Insulin resistance is also tied to obesity and difficulty losing weight [1].


Produced by fat cells, leptin suppresses appetite and communicates satiety to the brain after eating. People struggling with obesity often develop leptin resistance, undermining the hormone signals of fullness and continuing to drive overeating [2].


Ghrelin communicates hunger signals, triggering us to seek out and consume food. Dieters struggling with cravings often have excessive ghrelin production, making sticking to portion-controlled meals a constant struggle [3].


This primary stress hormone causes fat storage around the midsection when elevated over long periods of time. Chronically high cortisol disrupts sleep, metabolic rate, and blood sugar regulation – all factors that sabotage weight loss [4].


Testosterone plan an important role in weight management and weight loss. It plays a crucial role in building muscle mass as well as managing fat distribution as well as energy levels, metabolic rate, and appetite regulation.


Estrogen is the female hormone that plays a role in fat distribution in the body as well as matabolism, appetite regulation, energy levels, insulin sensitivity and muscle mass.


Thyroid levels also play a crucial rule in the metabolism in our bodies as well as caloric expenditure, fat storage and distribusion, appetite and hunger and weight loss.

Can hormonal imbalance hinder weight loss efforts?

Yes, it can hinder weight loss efforts. Hormones in our bodies play a major role in regulating metabolism, appetite, and energy expenditure. When your body releases more or fewer hormones than normal, it can affect your entire health which includes body weight as well.

If you have insulin resistance, it can make it difficult for your body to use glucose for energy. Similarly, leptin resistance can make you feel hungry, which can cause overeating and weight gain.

How can stress impact weight loss hormones?

Cortisol hormone gets released when we feel physical or psychological stress. It slows down metabolism to store energy for processing more crucial functions of the body during a threat. As a result, your insulin levels go up, and your blood sugar lowers, making you hungry and crave fatty foods.

Are there medical interventions for hormonal support in weight loss?

They can also prescribe weight loss medications, such as phentermine or Contrave, which can help suppress appetite, stimulate metabolism, or make it more difficult for your body to absorb fat from food.

Endocrinologists can prescribe weight loss drugs like phentermine to suppress appetite and regulate normal metabolism. They can also suggest hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT helps to replace hormones like estrogen and progesterone to help regulate metabolism and promote weight loss. They can also suggest testosterone for fat loss, sex drive improvement, and increasing muscle muscle mass.

Best Hormone Replacement For Weight Loss

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Injections

hCG mimics the hormone produced during pregnancy, signaling the body to tap into abnormal fat stores. The hCG protocol combines very low-calorie dieting with hCG injections or sublingual tablets. Done under medical supervision for 3-6 weeks, patients can experience rapid weight loss and reduced hunger.

Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Since thyroid hormones T3 and T4 strongly stimulate metabolism, deficiencies slow efforts to burn fat. Correcting low thyroid function with bioidentical hormones like levothyroxine or liothyronine can raise metabolic rate while improving energy, body temperature regulation, and more.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

Low testosterone in both men and women is linked to increased belly fat and difficulty building lean muscle. Testosterone therapy helps boost muscle growth, supporting an efficient metabolism while regulating the distribution of fat tissue.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as hormones produced in the body. Custom-compounded treatment plans address deficiencies in hormones like DHEA, melatonin, GH, and more. Restoring balance in the interconnected hormone network enhances overall metabolic function.

Semaglutide injections for weight loss

The class of medications called semaglutide injections are a version of a hormone that are bodies produced which is called Glucagon. The semaglutide medications like Ozempic and Wegovy produce Glucagon like peptide 1 and are also known as GLP-1 agonists. These medications can help regulate blood sugars as well as decrease appetite. They increase insulin secretion in our bodies and thus decrease blood sugars and why they are also used in diabetes patients. They are very effective in weight loss and thus GLP-1 drugs have become so popular. GLP-1 medications for weight loss are available as a compounded medication in our office for a fraction of the price of the brand name medication.

Benefits of Hormone Therapy for Weight Loss

Benefits of Hormone Therapy for Weight Loss - MyConciergeMD

Accelerated Fat Burning

Optimization of fat-burning hormones gives your metabolism the missing boost it needs to start efficiently converting excess fat stores into energy. Patients dropping weight quickly often overcome the motivation issues stalled progress can cause.

Reduced Cravings

Imbalances in hunger-regulating hormones like ghrelin, insulin, and leptin often leave dieters constantly hungry. Getting these hormones rebalanced restores normal signals for satiety. When biological hunger cues are put in check, resisting cravings becomes much easier.

Optimized Energy Levels

Excess weight strains the body, often causing hormonal shifts that result in fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and disruptions to sleep quality – further undermining weight goals. Restoring regulation instills lasting energy improvements.

Facilitates Weight Loss in Menopausal Women

Research shows combining multiple types of bioidentical hormone therapy not only helps prevent weight gain but can spur further weight loss over time.

A study found that patients receiving combination treatment for 3 months benefited in multiple ways. Their bodies had an increased ability to “burn” fat for fuel. Hormone regulation of blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides also improved. The resting metabolic rate was boosted as well [5].
