Unexplained Weight Gain

Are you gaining weight despite eating healthier and getting more physical activity? Has your weight loss slowed or stopped without making any changes?  If you are gaining weight (or not losing weight) for no apparent reason, you may have a medical problem.

Often times, a hormonal disorder can be the underlying cause of unexplained weight gain. An evaluation with a board-certified endocrinologist can identify treatable hormonal problems that may be causing unexplained weight gain. Because abnormal weight gain is considered a medical problem, insurance companies usually allow a full evaluation with an endocrinologist.

An evaluation typically includes obtaining a detailed history, physical examination and laboratory testing. There are many different medical problems that can cause weight gain. Your physician will perform a detailed evaluation to look for the common and not so common causes of abnormal weight gain.
