HCG Medical Weight Loss Program, Tyler & East Texas

The HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Medical Weight Loss Program is Available to Tyler, Texas Patients at Tyler Wellcare

The HCG medical weight loss program is different than many of the trendy diets, 30 minute workout plans and weight loss programs. By combining a low calorie, balanced and flexible diet plan with HCG injections from Tyler Wellcare, patients in the Tyler, Texas area can experience an ongoing healthy lifestyle thanks to this medical weight loss program.

What is the HCG Medical Weight Loss Program?

HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by the body only during pregnancy that regulates the nutrients given to the fetus.

The HCG hormone was used in the treatment of obesity disorders by a British physician, A.T.W. Simeons of the renowned Salvatore Mundi International Hospital in Rome, Italy, over a 16 year period starting in the 1950s. Dr. Simeons’ clinic had a 97% success ratio. Dr. Simeons’ hypothesis was that HCG mobilizes fat stores into the bloodstream. He noted clinically that appetite was suppressed as his patients lost weight, despite the restricted diet. After this discovery, he developed a list of foods that further enhanced weight loss.

This diet has enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity, and is available to Tyler, Texas patients at Tyler Wellcare.

How does the HCG Medical Weight Loss Program Work?

The HCG medical weight loss program works by following a specific diet, HCG injection schedule and drinking lots of water. HCG allows the body to tap into its stored fat for maximum utilization. With a lower caloric intake (500 calories daily) and HCG injections, the body is more reliant on its stored fat. Tyler, Texas patients should not be concerned with the low caloric intake. The HCG injections make the diet comfortable, and patients will have continued medical support from our physicians during this medical weight loss program.

Tyler, Texas patients entering the HCG medical weight loss program will have a thorough physical exam by Dr. Janine Islam and a basic blood panel drawn to look for renal, hepatic or thyroid disease. Those with a history of reproductive cancers, such as testicular, prostate, breast, endometrial, ovarian or uterine, should not enter the program.
If the patient is qualified, a prescription for injectable HCG, to be filled at a reputable pharmacy, is given to the patients. Patients can opt to have our team administer the injections during the week, however all patients so far have found it easy to self-administer the injections.

Dr. Janine Islam at Tyler Wellcare explains the HCG Medical Weight Loss Program

"I was a complete skeptic about HCG, but our staff convinced me that we should try it. The five of us completed the 25 day cycle. We lost between 14 to 19 pounds."

"Many East Texans of all ages and gender should be happy in realizing there is a way to lose weight without resorting to perpetual yo-yo diets. The program consists of HCG injections and a diet most clients seldom challenge. Oh yes, and drinking lots of water!"

"Unlike many weight loss/control plans, buying food for the HCG program won't "break your bank," Dr. Islam concluded.
