Weight gain at menopause is very common. Fortunately, there is progesterone to help women who are experiencing menopause and weight gain.
Why women gain weight at menopause?
Why women gain significant weight at menopause? The scientific answer will be very long.
However, we can briefly say that from puberty until perimenopause, women tend to store fat in their hips and thighs as subcutaneous fat.
However, during menopause, low estrogen levels promote fat storage in the belly area as visceral fat, which is linked to not only weight gain or obesity, but even other health problems such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Progesterone as a treatment for menopause and weight gain.
Progesterone can be used to treat menopausal symptoms that include weight gain.
During menopause, most women experience hormonal imbalance. Their estrogen and progesterone levels drop significantly leading to some health problems, including weight gain.
Taking estrogen pill, however, is not recommended because it tends to cause a more serious hormonal imbalance in menopausal women. The best option is to use progesterone cream.
Why progesterone cream? It’s because progesterone is optimally delivered to the body when applied through the skin, as opposed to administered orally.
