"Over the last 12 months, there's been an increase in stress and fatigue. Along with a decrease in physical activity and an increase in weight gain and BMI.
Our data also shows some really interesting trends in hormones. In particular, there's been a rise in average oestrogen levels during lockdown and these have now reached a new baseline. There are many potential reasons for this, but the impact of stress or weight gain on oestrogen levels is a possible explanation.
But what we do know for certain is that there are a number of factors that can affect our hormones. Unless we know and track our levels, it's difficult to identify the effects of different variables." - Dr Sumera Shaheney
