Examining the Link Between Uterine Fibroids and Weight Gain

Fibroids can cause a variety of symptoms, including weight gain. Have you gained weight recently? Are you concerned that your weight gain is associated with possible fibroids?

The caring professionals at our Fibroid Treatment Center provide compassionate, comprehensive uterine fibroid embolization (UFT) treatment in Atlanta. This treatment is designed to minimize symptoms without radical surgeries or lengthy downtimes.

We’ll explore the links between weight gain and uterine fibroids.

Why Do Fibroids Lead to Excess Weight?

Why Do Fibroids Develop?

The exact cause of fibroids remains unknown. However, multiple factors can contribute to their development.

Studies have suggested fibroid development is more likely in overweight and obese women. Additionally, fibroids are more common in women over 30, although they can occur at any age. Furthermore, research has shown that women of African descent have a greater risk of developing fibroids than women of other racial backgrounds.

Will Fibroids Cause Me To Gain Weight?

Some studies have found a correlation between fibroids and weight gain, while others have found no significant association. This lack of consensus may be because weight gain can be influenced by multiple factors, making it difficult to isolate the role of fibroids.

However, weight gain, in tandem with other symptoms like lower abdominal pain, frequent urination, and heavy menstrual bleeding, could be a cause for concern and should be evaluated by a medical professional.
