Low testosterone has many symptoms that affect guys day to day: loss of muscle mass, energy decrease, poor mental focus, poor sleep, and decreased libido. The most common reason men seek treatment from our physicians is due to weight gain They just CANT shake the belly fat and want us to help them crush it.
2 TYPES OF BELLYS . . . WHICH BELLY ARE YOU FIGHTING.
Guys that have increased weight gain especially around the gut come in two ways:
- They have always had it and can’t shake it
- Most of their life they NEVER had it, and what worked to get rid of it stopped working.
Lets address each of these as they are treated differently based on the blood chemistry.
“I have always had belly fat, don’t know what it is like to not have it there” I get it . . . . . Many of our patients are in this spot and are frustrated with lack of results. Testosterone treatment is able to elevate the muscle mass, improve workouts, and increase metabolism. The other key to helping these guys is the Estrodiol or E2. The E2 is many times the enemy there – the testosterone may be in the normal range but the E2 can be way out of whack. This can cause the increased weight gain, water retention, and lack of results.
“This sucks – can’t even believe that is me in the mirror. I used to think guys like this didn’t try or didn’t care. I am doing more than I used to and look worse than ever!” Man I feel your pain.
How much time can one guy stay in the gym . . . how little carbs can I eat . . . I still can’t move what went south back up north. Along with the improved workouts, gaining muscle mass, and positive outlook from normalized testosterone levels.
HERE IS WHAT BOTH HAVE IN COMMON: Insulin Sensitivity
Your bodies is a complex factors with many different machines working in harmony. The power plant for your body will take in the food you eat, break it down, and get it in to the tissues for use. Insulin and the bodies sensitivity to it are a huge factor.
