NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Did you know that unbalanced male and female hormones can contribute to weight gain?

Dr. Kelly Burkenstock of Skin Body Health in Metairie says both men and women have certain amounts of testosterone, estrogens, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone and other hormones in their bodies.

When they get out of balance, we can become moody and fatigued and experience decreased libido and weight gain.

“With the Dare to Be Thin program, we look at your hormone levels, and if any of them need to be balanced, we balance them for you,” Dr. Burkenstock explains.  “It’s one part to ensure you’re on the road to skinny success.”
