Estrogen and hunger

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen and hunger


Avatar f tn Your FSH levels are consistent with premature menopause. If you were on the pill, the LH and FSH values would be low, not elevated as they are. Have you gained weight? Some of the estrogen could be from the fat cells. There could also be other sources. It does not seem your ovaries have "kicked back in" because the FSH and LH are still high. Thyroid and estrogen are related. The higher the estrogen, the lower the thyroid and visa versa.
Avatar n tn I've found it very helpful to curb normal hunger pangs for about a half hour, and have tried it on a coworker and it worked for her in a similar manner. I looked this up on the net and believe it's that when your blood sugar drops, the glucose tells the brain to send signals to the stomach to stop tightening up and acting hungry. Just a pea-sized amount works every time for me, and each pouch is about an ounce.
Avatar f tn You may want to switch to a non-hormonal birth control method as trial. -Synthetic estrogen and progesterone may be messing up your homonal balance and causing a spike in Ghrenlin, a reduction of Leptin or inducing hypoglycemia or a combination of these. -Subclinical hypoglycemia, which most doctors dismiss, may be disrupting your sleep (even if you may not notice) which may impact negativley hunger regulating hormones. -Leptin which controls appetite gets reduced when sleep is disrupted.
415867 tn?1323369103 As the follicles ripen over a period of about seven days, they secrete more and more estrogen into the bloodstream. Estrogen causes the lining of the uterus to thicken. It causes the cervical mucous to change. When the estrogen level reaches a certain point it causes the hypothalamus to release Leutenizing Hormone Releasing Factor (LH-RF) causing the pituitary to release a large amount of Leutenizing Hormone (LH).
Avatar n tn Hello and thanks for taking my question. Recently I have developed PVC's and or Ventricular Tachycardia (sp) which came out of no where. I've had every test imaginable, ekgs, echos, nuclear stress test (2 in the last year), angiograms...everything. It all turns up ok. BP and cholesterol is great, don't drink, smoke, drugs, gave up coffee/soda etc. My cardiologist is really trying to find the cause because he said the pvc's are coming from the lower chamber of my heart.
215905 tn?1214505001 I am hypothyroid taking Levothyroxine, I have adrenal fatigue; Polycystic ovary Sydrome; High Cholesterol; retaining water like no other; and estrogen dominance. So yes am taking meds for each and then my doctor just put me on Metformin I am not seeing any results from this either. I am so frustrated and desperate a year ago I was 160 down to a size 8 and now I am at 211 and in 14/16's. I was doing the lite for life program when I just crashed and was craving suger like mad...
Avatar n tn One more thing I agree with the person who said it makes you feel full , that part is 100% true it really decreases my hunger and appitite(spelled wrong) I will keep you all posted. P.S. As of right now I am taking the 500mg. Thursday I start the 1000 mg dose so we will see.
Avatar n tn Ive had low blood sugar shakiness and hunger. I eat a very healthy diet so thats not the issue - simple carbs are a bad idea on Merina by the way. I have acne once a month around when the period would be- but currently no period,just spotting. My skin has been clear since my early 20s so thats dissapointing,the doctor felt that might clear up as the body adjust.I feel puffy & bloated around the belly & seemed to have gained some belly fat & that has me worried.
443102 tn?1222129546 My friend said she felt symptoms earlier than she should have and I am wondering if some estrogen gets released at fertilization and makes you have a few symptoms at first. I read that on the internet......hehehehe! Thanks for your much!
Avatar n tn Based on my lmp I am 6 weeks, 1 day pregnant but based on my ovulation schedule and conception date, I am 4 weeks. I went to get an ultrasound today (vag and ab) because I had some small brown discharge one week ago (none since). The tech saw the gest. sac and yolk sac but no embryo, and thought that I was not as far along as I thought, that I looked to be about 4 weeks. She recommended I come back in 1 week or so for another ultrasound.
393685 tn?1425816122 I have awful cravings and hunger two times a month, just before my cycle begins and when I ovulate. This makes it hard to keep my weight in check. I feel so out of control during these times. I think hormone issues are just looked at as a way of life and something that is not taken very seriously most of the time. The pill seems to be a cure all for women my age and that is very disappointing.
Avatar n tn She smiled and looked at the nurse in the room and said actually no I don't think your crazy and I (she) just had a big seminar about it with the doctors around town. She said it is directly related to the hormones in a womens cycle. That's not to say it can't happen at other times of the month. There are "triggers as she said. Caffein, alcohol and so forth. I felt better. I take medicine for it and sometime right before my cycle starts I have to take more because it can get so bad.
897578 tn?1241724871 I hope to find answers and peace of mind. I am 47 and have always been fairly healthy. Within the past few months, I noticed extreme fatigue, especially late afternoon. I need a 2 to 3 hour nap daily, which is so out of character for me. Also, since December 2008, I have gained 25 pounds and my hair is falling out at an alarming rate. I have never had a problem with my weight, in fact, I have been slightly underweight.. until recently.
Avatar f tn The few common side effects of birth control pills are changes in appetite or weight gain, nausea, sore breasts, headaches, menstrual irregularities, mood changes etc since they contain estrogen and progesterone. Few progestin-dominant pills can cause appetite increase and permanent weight gain. Pill-related depression may also lead to increased appetite and weight gain.
Avatar f tn What other diseases should I research that may be the cause of my hyperandrogenism and other symptoms?
Avatar n tn After 2-3 days on HcG my hunger vanished and I felt great. Energy? I had more energy on the 500 cal. diet with HcG than when I was eating normally. My blood pressure went from borderline high to normal as well. It has now been nearly 4 weeks since I stopped the Hcg. I have not gained back ANY weight. Normally 4 weeks after stopping a diet I would have gained back at least 8-10 lbs. My doctor who was VERY skeptical is not any more. She was absolutely stunned at the results.
Avatar f tn Only two, including one co-written by an advocate of the diet, found that people on hCG lost more weight, felt less hunger and had an improved body shape, compared with people on the same 500-calorie diet who received a placebo, like saline injections.But several studies concluded that the ritual of the daily injection and the instant gratification of quick weight loss helped motivate people to stay on the diet.
233616 tn?1312790796 In light of the fact that I am currently UND and have no virus, the reversal of fatty liver and less necrosis and less HCC all sounds very appealing, not to mention any reduction in IR would mean ones own Interferon response would be better post tx. and this alone may increase ones chances of an SVR even if begun at the end of an SOC regime. Perhaps now, more than any other time it could help insure one will recognize any lingering HCV and seek and destroy as designed.
Avatar n tn I took thyroid meds and sometimes it would help with the hunger. Also eat clean meat with no estrogen or antbiotics. i think estrogen makes you hungry in p/g. Just eat til the 11th week and see if it doesn't go away. I ate as much as the urge came and tried to do it as quickly as it came. Red meat and eggs worked best to curb the pains -bodies call for testosterone in p/g?!!!! Green tea also has testosterone and this could be why my cravings have come under control now too.
Avatar f tn The levels of estrogen and cortisol fluctuate throughout the menstrual period. When the levels of cortisol in the body are high, the body activates its defense mechanism to make it metabolically active. This causes increase in the appetite of the woman. Try to eat food containing complex carbohydrates rather than simple carbohydrates. You should avoid eating processed sugar in order to avoid repeated hunger pangs, during the premenstrual period.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar f tn I am currently on Ortho Evra (the patch) and so far it's been doing what it's supposed to (keeping me from being preggers), but the only back draw is that it's side effects are all of the typical symptoms of pregnancy, and for me the side effects change each month. In short I never really KNOW whether I am pregnant or whether I'm not until the next period, but a few days ago Chocolate suddenly started tasting weird to me, and I was wondering if that had happened to anyone else.
393685 tn?1425816122 Chief among them are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone interact to coordinate a woman’s menstrual cycle during her reproductive years. The brain produces the hormones follicle stimulating hormones (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) which trigger hormone production from the ovaries. When any of the hormones coming from the brain or the ovaries are imbalanced, symptoms may occur.
Avatar f tn Quick background. After 10 years on birth control, last year I got off the pill (I am 28). I had a regular period for six months and felt really "estrogen amped" - it was really great to feel in tune with my body. Four months ago I did not get my period and the day it was suppose to begin I started having lower right abdominal pain. I have confirmed through blood tests that I am not pregnant. After three months I got an Ultrasound and a CT.
Avatar f tn I told her I've gained a lot due to actually eating now. And I'm a vegan so I eat lots of breads, starches and fruits. And to top it off I quit drinking coffee and cigarettes which suppressed my hunger before pregnancy. I weighed 125 before now I weigh 145 and I'm only 22 weeks.

202615 tn?1271373104 Results are in the RE's office called and said that my Estrogen level was 1676 and progesterone was greater than 20. They said that the numbers looked really good. Now all I can do is keep praying and waiting to see what comes out of this. Did you have your levels checked after your IVF cycle and if so what was your numbers.
