OBESITY AND HORMONES

(Last Updated On: November 28, 2019)

OBESITY

The variant of obesity is not only because of over-eating but also hormonal imbalances, due to each person’s body responds to the food differently. For some people, consuming flour or sugar does not seem to affect their weight or shape at all because their metabolic system can deal with the excess carbohydrates and able to excrete it from their body but for some people, having just little bites of dessert or flour might cause flatulence and easy to gain weight.

THE OBESITY THAT CAUSED BY HORMONAL IMBALANCES CAN BE OBSERVED BY THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS;

  • Easy to gain weight but difficult to lose weight
  • Ankle and instep are swelling
  • Having too dry or too oily skin
  • Having stretch marks, even though not pregnant

If you are facing this problem, the gastric balloon insertion might be the option for people who want to lose weight and have obesity treatment. During the procedure, the gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth using an endoscope (thin, flexible telescope). The saline-filled gastric balloon rests in the stomach cavity and decreases the appetite by occupying approximately one-third of the stomach volume. Thus, the people who have gastric balloon insertion will have a feeling of fullness, which naturally makes them eat less and lose weight.
