If losing weight has become a kind of struggle for you, and you think that your diet does not provide the desired results, then the hormone – leptin is guilty. Leptin is a hormone that is secreted by cells and its general function is to balance the body weight and energy levels. There are two ways so that leptin does not perform its function. The first is to signal the brain when we eat, and the second is to stimulate fat tissue.
However, there are cases when leptin is faulty. Specifically, many obese people have developed a resistance to leptin in their bodies.
After a long period of high levels of leptin, many people lose their sensitivity to leptin in their bodies. This means that the brain does not listen when leptin speaks to accelerate the metabolism and the person stops eating:
– High dietary fat
– Fructose Corn Syrup
What should you do?
Go to a doctor to check the hormone, confirm the problem, and give you medications to restore hormonal balance.
