Surprising Causes of Unwanted Weight Gain

Excess weight or obesity can lead to a variety of medical conditions. Notable examples include diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and kidney disease. Our medical weight loss centers in Takoma Park, Maryland, specialize in helping lose unwanted weight. Surprising causes of unwanted weight gain you may not have known about include:

Hormonal imbalances can affect metabolism and fat storage in the body, leading to unwanted weight gain. Hormonal changes associated with conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hypothyroidism, or menopause can also lead to weight gain. Hormonal therapy can help address imbalances.

  • Chronic Stress

Stress can increase cortisol production, which stimulates appetite and leads to cravings for high-calorie food. Too much cortisol production can lead to unwanted weight gain. Our weight loss diet in Gaithersburg, Maryland, can help you lose unwanted pounds.

  • Nutrient Deficiencies

Vitamins and minerals help promote normal body functions and hormonal stability. Nutrient deficiencies can cause hormonal imbalances or changes that could lead to unwanted weight gain. You could address nutrient deficiencies with our IV therapy in Potomac, Maryland.
