How Stress Can Affect Your Hormone And Weight Loss Journey?

How Stress Can Affect Your Hormone And Weight Loss Journey?

Stress is a very common problem in today’s world. There can be various reasons for stress like relationship problems such as interpersonal relationship difficulties, problems in handling social relationships, poor financial conditions, health issues, problems of coping with hurdles at the workspace and so on. Due to stress, our body can undergo a lot of chemical and physical changes. There can be an imbalance in the hormonal levels which may trigger physical changes such as weight loss.

So, due to the complications in this hectic world, each person is suffering from some amount of stress. We cannot escape from the common day to day problems and this may lead to an adverse effect on our health in the long run.

One should note that stress is not always bad, sometimes, it is important to experience stressful situations to increase the motivation to bring out the best in you. But in cases of stressful situations, the cortisol and adrenaline-like hormones are released. But when the stressful conditions are prolonged, the body release stress hormones more frequently and this may lead to the inflammation in the body at various location and lead to the weakening of immune system.

Effect of stress on body weight-

  • Stress creates a lot of impact on the body weight and metabolism of our body. You can actually gain weight due to stress. It is because the adrenal glands stimulate the brain to release cortisol in a continuous manner to produce more glucose in the liver to keep your energy state high.
  • The stress leads to increase in calorie intake as the person likes to eat a lot of fatty food and due to this, abdominal obesity increases. This can cause the greater risk for diabetes, heart diseases and weight issues.
  • Also, the excess production of cortisol hormone can interfere with the production of testosterone and other hormones essential for regulation of metabolism. The lower level of testosterone causes loss of muscles, strength reduction and gain in weight. Males who face the problem of deficiency of testosterone, may face the higher risk of getting enlarged breasts, erectile dysfunctioning and depression.
  • Also, the catabolic rate increases under the influence of cortisol. This will lead to the loss of muscle strength and reduction in protein synthesis lead to difficulty in building mass.
  • Therefore, chronic stress can cause disruption in the functioning of hormones and decreases the testosterone levels which in turn can lower down the metabolism. It leads to increase in appetite and you may end up in eating junk food and this overeating can cause the increase in weight.
  • It is really very important to have control over stress by eliminating the unnecessary tension by following certain ways. You can first identify what leads to stress and then the reasons responsible for the triggering of stressful situations. You can also opt for medications and other breathing techniques to keep yourself calm. You should always find time to exercise and it will help in reducing stress.

I am addicted to smoking. And I want to stop smoking. Because of this I am suffering lot of problems. So please suggest me how to stop this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Murshidabad
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of will power to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of will power to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

I lost my love, I always thinks about her I am feeling very depressed every time mind diverted, please help me!

I lost my love, I always thinks about her I am feeling very depressed every time mind diverted, please help me!
Dear Sachin. Welcome to lybrate. Depression related to lost love is pretty common. You have to accept the fact. Accepting the fact that the lost love will not come back, is the first step towards cure. Accept it. Also accept that you can do nothing about it. Slowly your emotions will die down. Don't worry. It is a matter of two or three weeks. Consult a psychologist online for counseling if need be. Take care.

Anxiety Disorder: 5 Risk Factors Against It

Anxiety Disorder: 5 Risk Factors Against It

A person with anxiety disorders is said to suffer from feelings of terror and anxiety pertaining to the future as well as to the current situation. These feelings manifest themselves physically in forms like shakiness, and heart palpitations. Though the exact cause of the condition is still not known, risk factors associated with the condition have been identified:

  • Being female - It's said that women are twice at risk of developing anxiety disorders than men. Various factors have been found to increase this problem in women such as cultural pressures of putting all efforts in fulfilling the needs of others.
  • Family history - Your risk of developing anxiety disorders increases if one of your family members suffers from the problem. Several studies show a strong connection between the fears of the parent and that of the child. Experts also believe that a child can also learn the phobias and fears of his or her parents by observing their reaction to a specific event.
  • Type of personality - An individual's personality is also an indicator of his or her risk of suffering from anxiety disorders. Studies reveal that children who are shy and have a history of being bullied tend to develop anxiety disorders afterward. Similarly, children who worry a lot during uncertain situations are also more prone to developing anxiety disorders.
  • A history of trauma - Anxiety disorders can also be triggered by traumatic events and individuals who have a family history of the condition, a psychological makeup that makes them prone to the condition or biochemical factors are more susceptible to falling for this condition.
  • Medical conditions - Even though the cause and effect relationship between medical conditions and the disorder is yet to be ascertained, certain medical conditions can also augment one's risk for anxiety disorders. These medical conditions may be obstructive sleep apnea, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome and so on.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I lost some body closed last year and very depressed please help me and guide me.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

She is not feeling well due to some external reasons like breakup from her boyfriend her mind is completely thinking about that and how to get her to normal stage?

She is not feeling well due to some external reasons like breakup from her boyfriend her mind is completely thinking ...
It looks like she is pining for him after the break up. You could help her analyze why they had this fallout? If it her fault, then she needs to apologize and see if he is amenable. If not she may have done something quite unforgivable. In any relationship there must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. Now whatever went wrong and if it cannot be helped, then she has to leave all this far behind. Good friends, like you, can make a huge difference by distracting her, making her feel worthy, lovable and above all to not become too negative. If you see that she has serious problems about the break up please take her to a counselor and make sure that she follows that person’s advice. Help her remove all associations of his: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get him out of her system, not mind. Help her keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to her old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a boy friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with him. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do help her to get back with them and get into good social circles. They will help her get over him. Do not let her talk ill or malign her ex to his friends or to him, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect his reputation and treat him with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for her, do meet up with a counselor and talk about her feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and he is not the only boy in life. She will find another but teach her not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time she needs to choose wisely and behave like a true lady. You must help her do that and improve her self-belief.

Hi, you have scored really well in your 10th and intermediates. If you aren't able to study well in your b. Tech then either you are not interested in the course and doing it maybe because you have been told to do so. You need to figure out what and where does your interest lie. Is this the course that would help you in your chosen career. If yes then try to create a schedule for your study. Chunk your portions into doable sets and follow your time table. Don't leave your studies for last moment exam panics. Make study a regular habit and you will be able to achieve the percentage that you wish to get. All the best!
