Is There A Link Between HRT And Middle Age Spread

By Guest

Many women who are undergoing HRT or Hormone Replacement Therapy report a sudden gain in weight and because the two things coincide the automatic assumption is that they are somehow linked. Many researchers believe that there is no connection between middle aged spread and HRT and that the resulting weight gain is more down to the inactivity after the full or partial hysterectomy and not necessarily hormone related.

It is also suggested in some research that the same number of women gain weight as do not through the menopause regardless of whether they are having hormone replacement therapy or not. This could indicate that the increase in weight has more to do with general age and not as a result of any hormone replacement. So maybe there is more to middle age spread than meets the eye.

Hormone Replacement Therapy can generally be linked to around 4-5lbs of weight gain. Let us not forget that the whole point of HRT is that it is designed to replace hormones that occur naturally in the body in any case but in much smaller concentrations. This also may suggest that there is no link between the two things and possibly means that there are other factors involved.

Another consideration is that men also seem to suffer from middle aged spread around the same time in their lives but this is not normally attributed to hormones going crazy!

The best way to combat middle aged spread is to get into the routine of doing regular exercise. Even simple things like walking to the local store rather than driving will help. You could even consider joining the gym, taking up an aerobics class, starting something like a dance class even or swimming will not only help you shed those extra pounds but will certainly give your whole self a real boost.
