Welcome to the official blog for Scott Isaacs, M.D.  

My philosophy is simple: permanent weight loss through hormonal balance.  My books take the approach of balancing your hormones to help you achieve optimum health and weight management.  More than just diet books, my books teach you about your hormones and show you how you can keep them balanced.

My books include:

Hormonal Balance:  Understanding Hormones, Weight and Your Metabolism

The Leptin Boost Diet:  Unleash Your Fat-Controlling Hormones for Maximum Weight Loss

Overcoming Metabolic Syndrome

A Simple Guide to Thyroid Disorders:  From Diagnosis to Treatment

Hormones are as fundamental as life itself.  All living creatures, as a matter of fact, have hormones.  They are powerful molecules that control your metabolism.  Hormones regulate how much fat you have and where you have it; they control your appetite; they affect your energy level; they influence your mood, your emotions, even your desire to exercise.  Hormones determine the size and strength of your muscles.  And hormones help determine your body weight. 

In my blog, I’ll talk about how to balance your hormones and improve your metabolism, increase your energy level, lower your appetite, and improve your body weight.

What is hormonal balance?  It really depends on who you ask.  If you ask a gynecologist, he’ll tell you it’s the female hormones-estrogen, progesterone and prolactin.  If you ask a urologist, she’ll tell you it’s all about testosterone.  If you ask a diabetologist, he will tell you it’s about balancing your insulin, glucagon and blood sugar. 

An endocrinologist will tell you that hormonal balance is having all your hormones balanced.  Hormones like leptin, adiponectin, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), neuropeptide Y, ghrelin, resistin, dopamine, serotonin, visfatin, cholecystokinin, thyroid hormone, insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, cortisol, growth hormone and many others all influence your appetite, metabolism and weight.  All your hormones affect one another. 

It’s one big circle.  When one hormone is out of balance, it has profound effects on all your hormones.  They are all connected.  Hormonal balance means having the perfect amount of every hormone.  It means having a body that’s healthy and resilient.

My blog and my books address all your hormones and gives solutions for people struggling with their weight.  The diets in my books have helped so many people balance their hormones, lose weight and become healthier.  I love to hear success stories.  Please contact me at drisaacs@yourendocrinologist.com.
