As women age into their 40’s and 50’s, the natural loss of muscle mass can contribute to a slower metabolism. This in combination with increased responsibilities, less time dedicated to exercise/ physical activity and less attention to diet can all lead to weight gain.

Menopause and the decline in oestrogen levels that occur around this time can cause weight gain around the midsection which can be difficult to shed.

There are several medical conditions throughout a woman’s life stages that can also contribute to sudden or unexpected weight gain, so it is important to see your doctor and discuss this.

There is also help available in the form of tablets and injectable weight loss medications that can help to manage your weight. Ask our GP’s with a special interest in weight loss about these options and if they may be suitable for you.
