Average Weight Loss is 2-5 Pounds per Week
HCG targets the adipose fat (stubborn fat), so patients lose inches while they are losing weight. Between HCG and a low calorie diet, the average weight loss for patients is 10-15 pounds per month.
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone secreted by the placenta during pregnancy (the same hormone detected in home pregnancy kits). It was first used to help weight loss because several physicians noted that overweight women actually lost weight when they were pregnant. More than a dozen medical studies have shown that, combined with a low calorie diet and exercise, HCG increases fat loss and helps with loss of inches.
HCG has not been approved by the FDA for weight loss, although it has been approved for the treatment of other medical conditions. Federal laws allow medical providers to use the approved drugs for alternative treatments. It is called “OFF LABEL USAGE” and occurs quite frequently in the medical profession.
HCG is used in extremely low doses for weight loss. Weekly injection of 35 units is recommended. More frequent injection may be given after a re-evaluation and approval from your medical provider. HCG is used in much higher doses (140 times more than in a daily injection) to increase fertility. In the small dose of 35 units. HCG does NOT increase fertility. However, fertility is increased with every five (5) pounds of weight loss! HCG can cause a false pregnancy test in urine only.
In the past, some patients have not qualified for our regular weight loss program. This has been due to them not being the recommended percentage over their ideal weight or BMI being within normal range. Since HCG affects only the abnormal fat, such as “belly fat” or the “spare tire”, a larger number of patients will qualify for this treatment.
I began my weight loss journey in April 2018 at 279 pounds. I had decided I was going to make a lifestyle change and the Bariatric clinic has helped me so much! My goal is 180 pounds in a years time and now 6 months into my journey I am 223(56 pounds lost). I am so proud of myself and so thankful for all the help I’ve received! I feel great and look great 😊 44 more to go💪🏾
5 stars!! Great clinic. always friendly and hopeful. Nurses are great. Had blood work today and it was over so fast. really know what they are doing. Doctors are working with you to get you where you need to be. Great place
If you need to lose weight, this is the place to go. I have seen two different doctors since I started at the clinic and both of them were very kind, encouraging and professional. The nurses and office staff are wonderful, friendly, and helpful. It has been a great experience for me. I'm glad I chose the Bariatric Clinic in Greenville!☺
I have been coming here off & on since 2010 and everyone is extremely nice! The nurses & doctors take their time with you and answer any questions without rushing you like most places do now days! The Wait time is not long (which is nice)! I'm usually in and out within 30 minutes! The office visit isn't high nor are the meds at the corner drug store! I highly recommend this place!
Best doctors and staff in the business. I love this place.
