It often happens that a person leads a healthy lifestyle, observes all the rules and recommendations of nutritionists and coaches, but the arrow of the weights stubbornly goes to the right.
What is the reason for the unexplained increase in body weight?
According to experts, there are four reasons for this.
First of all, if you are doing everything right, and the weight is growing, you should seriously attend to the health of the thyroid gland.
If this organ “junk”, not producing sufficient levels of hormones, then this situation is fraught with Hashimoto’s disease or, as it is also called, hypothyroidism, which can signal an unexplained increase in body weight and chronic fatigue.
If such signs are present, they should not be ignored, since the disease will cause a number of complications in the future.
When you go to the doctor and after squeezing all the necessary tests, the doctor will prescribe medication to compensate for the lack of hormone production.
In the second place, oddly enough, sleep problems.
As you know, doctors say that healthy sleep is usually at least 7 hours. Otherwise, the body will begin to “rebel”, exacerbating various diseases and mood swings. In addition, insomnia often provokes the desire for a snack, as the feeling of hunger is exacerbated, which literally pushes a person to the refrigerator at night.
However, it’s not just about appetite.
According to scientists from Sweden, who conducted research, insomnia is also fraught with changes in the body .
In other words, an increase in fat stores begins to occur. The body, receiving a signal of stress (and insomnia is serious stress), begins to prepare for “disaster” and accumulate fat.
Another important factor in increasing body mass index is depression.
Yes, more often than not, people who fall into it begin to lose weight. Provided that they do not “seize” their despondency and melancholy. But not infrequently, a depressive state also leads to the opposite result.
Also, in the list of the main provocateurs of obesity – a disease that is called “Cushing’s disease” and is characterized by a serious decrease in performance, as well as a number of pathologies, including hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Often it makes itself felt with red or bright pink stretch marks in the abdomen and sides. At the same time, experts say that this disease makes a person look like an apple: arms and legs remain thin, while the torso increases. Often such “metamorphoses” occur with the back of the head.
Doctors advise, in case of detecting such or similar symptoms, not to postpone the visit to the doctor.
