Post-menopausal. Noticed no of cherry angiomas, losing weight. Which hormone is responsible and looking for remedy?

I am 53 yrs old, female, post-menopausal and have gained approx. 10 lbs mostly on my abdomen . I have also recently noticed a number of cherry angiomas. I have read that it can have to do with age, gaining weight, and hormonal fluctuations. Can t change the chronological age, am losing weight and exercising, but I m wondering which hormones would be responsible and what remedies I should take to balance them?

Thanks for writing to us.
The hormones responsible for the symptoms can be replacement therapy if you are taking any or the steroids. You need to get your blood levels evaluated.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
