Did you know that your brain and body communicate through hormone messengers to control your metabolism, body weight and appetite? The study of metabolism, appetite and weight regulation is one of the most exciting areas of medicine today, and the scientific discoveries of the past two decades bring increasing clarity and promise to the treatment of patients with obesity.
Elevated cholesterol, blood pressure or blood sugar, high body weight and infertility frequently have an underlying metabolic cause. In fact, obesity is now categorized by the American Heart Association and the American Medical Association as a “multi-metabolic and hormonal disease state” because scientists have found multiple imbalances in key metabolic factors, hormones and neurotransmitters in those who are affected.
