Endocrinal and Hormonal Obesity

Obesity is associated with many endocrine abnormalities which are related to hormonal imbalance and resistance. Some of these abnormalities are considered as factors to cause for the development of obesity, whereas others are considered to be secondary effects of obesity and usually are restored after weight loss. Hormones play an important role in appetite, metabolism, body fat distribution and storage of excess energy in food as fats. 

Weight reduction generally normalizes these endocrine alterations, implicating obesity as a direct cause. Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate processes in our body. They are one of the factors causing obesity. When an individual's hormones are out of balance, it may be impossible to achieve sustained weight management. People with obesity have levels of hormones that can increase accumulation of body fat by altering the metabolism of the fats.
