Does HRT help with weight loss?

If you’re looking for a way to lose weight, you may have heard about Hormone Replacement Therapy. HRT is a treatment where individuals take hormones to replace those no longer being produced by the body. Most commonly, HRT is prescribed for women going through the menopause.

However, HRT can also be a great way to help with weight loss. Bodyline Clinic can help you lose weight with our bespoke bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Menopause Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatments

How does it work?

HRT can help to regulate your metabolism and hormones, which in turn can aid in weight loss. This is because when women experience a decrease in oestrogen through menopause many see an increase in belly fat and weight. By replacing the lost oestrogen with HRT, women are more likely to lose this. Likewise, HRT regulates metabolism, which means the body burns more calories and appetite is reduced.

HRT can also help to reduce the risk of obesity-related diseases, such as heart disease and type II diabetes. Additional benefits include reduced hot flashes and night sweats, increased bone density, and improved mood.


Bodyline specialises in private HRT treatment. We use blood profiling and personalised bioidentical hormone replacement to help women regulate their hormones while going through the change.

Will it work for me?

While HRT can help you lose weight, it’s important to remember that everyone is different. Some people may lose a lot of weight, while others may only lose a few pounds. Some people may see results within a few weeks, while others may not see results for several months.

Luckily, for those with a BMI over 27, Bodyline also has 15 years of experience offering medical weight loss programmes, clinical guidance, and lifestyle support. If you have any questions about medical weight loss with Bodyline, get in touch with our experts by calling 0800 995 6036 or filling in an online contact form.
