A Heavy Burden: Could an Underlying Health Condition Be the Cause of Your Weight Gain?

A Heavy Burden: Could an Underlying Health Condition Be the Cause of Your Weight Gain?

Spring has sprung, and we all know what that means: Swimsuit season is just around the corner. Perhaps the thought of summer has you feeling more dread than excitement. Maybe you’ve looked into the mirror lately and hardly recognized the person staring back at you.

The reality is that if you’ve found yourself putting on weight recently, you are far from alone. In fact, a recent study from Harvard found that 39% of those studied had gained weight since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

If you’re among that 39%, though, it may be more than pandemic stress that is to blame. A host of common health conditions can also contribute to weight gain, including Cushing's disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and hypothyroidism, to name only a few.

Most troublingly of all, weight gain that is caused by an underlying medical condition is often rapid, substantial, and extremely difficult to take off.

This means that if you find yourself gaining weight, or struggling to lose those excess pounds, an undiagnosed health issue may just be the culprit.

At Prime Wellness, our expert team of healthcare specialists can help you find the answers to the cause of your weight gain and develop a personalized treatment program to serve your health needs and goals. We offer an array of products and services designed to support weight loss and improve overall health. This includes treatment regimens to help detoxify the body, restore hormonal balance, and maintain optimal nutrition. Contact us today to discuss how the caring team at Prime Wellness can help you!

This works by helping hormones function better. Each program involves a 25-minute consultation explaining the program, reviewing health history, getting baselines such as weight, and administration of the first injection.
