Most of us are in a constant battle with those extra pounds that refuse to reduce even upon regular exercise. To reduce weight, reducing the calorie intake and eating healthy are the first steps. Regular exercise is also essential to burn the fat residues in the body. However, inability to lose weight even after exercises and eating the right food could indicate certain underlying medical conditions.
Thyroid: Thyroid glands make hormones which regulate the usage of energy in the body. Hypothyroidism disrupts the body metabolism. Symptoms of this are weight gain, inability to lose weight, fatigue, hair loss, dry skin, muscle weakness, heavy or irregular periods and depression.
Stress: stress, anxiety, grief etc can trigger the production of hormones like cortisol, which cause the fat to be stored in the regions around waist.
Cushing’s syndrome: The adrenal glands present on top of kidneys produce cortisol. When too much cortisol is produced it leads to fat accumulation in the face back and abdomen.
Poly cystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): This disease affects women as a result of hormonal changes. It causes irregular menstrual bleeding, excessive facial hair, thinning hair, weight gain and acne.
Hyperinsulinemia: Also known as syndrome X. it is a health condition which is caused by insulin resistance which in turn leads to the other hormones controlling the metabolism to not work efficiently.
Depression: people suffering from depression usually turn to binge eating to relieve their distress. This may lead to overconsumption of calories.
General hormonal changes: in women, a lot of hormonal changes occur at different time during their life. For example: puberty, during pregnancy and menopause.
Other than these medical conditions, lifestyle also attributes to weight gain. Drinking alcohol can cause difficulty in weight loss as alcohols are rich in carbohydrates and add extra calories. It also raises blood sugar levels and insulin levels thereby contributing to weight gain.
