hello! I am starting hormones soon, I'm 20kg overweight and I want to lose this belly; should i focus on getting to a healthy weight before I start hormones? is that anything i should worry about? (your fashion looks like #goals to me btw aaaaaahhh♡)
Both being on HRT and being a bit on the upside has it’s health risks related to them. Stuff might overlap to different degrees, take blood clotting for instance. BUT! You should talk to a hormone doctor about this, they’ll know a lot better than me whether you’ll face elevated risks. Most doctors I’ve heard about will run blood works before issuing hormones to know what levels would be responsible for the person in question.
Sooo I’d say go for it and follow your doctors advice. Don’t put off HRT if you got a chance of starting *soon* 🙂
