this information is just plain wrong. this is a perfect example of blog-doctor gone wrong. it would take me all day to correct this misleading garbage. people if you suspect you have a hormonal disorder see an endocrinologist….end of story. the entire premise that adrenal fatigue would cause weight gain is false. its quite to the contrary. adrenal fatigue causes weight loss. lack of cortisol=hypoglycemia=weight loss…period. adrenal fatigue is at a rate of approx. 1:100,000 so doubt that is your problem ladies…your problem is actually extremely simple…you are eating more calories than your burning. throw out the potato chips. cancel your netflix subscription. stop watching game of thrones…and maybe go out for a run.
The impact of estrogen. In animal studies, estrogen appears to help control body weight. With lower estrogen levels , lab animals tend to eat more and be less physically active. Reduced estrogen may also lower metabolic rate , the rate at which the body converts stored energy into working energy. It's possible the same thing happens with women when estrogen levels drop after menopause. Some evidence suggests that estrogen hormone therapy increases a woman's resting metabolic rate . This might help slow weight gain. Lack of estrogen may also cause the body to use starches and blood sugar less effectively, which would increase fat storage and make it harder to lose weight.
