Human chorionic gonadotropin or HCG has been used in the medical field for many years and for many different reasons. At MetroMD, we use human chorionic gonadotropin in Hollywood, CA, specifically for the popular and effective HCG diet.

What is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)?

HCG is a hormone that is reproductive hormone that is highly present in early pregnancy. It also has been used to treat fertility in men and women. HCG helps maintain and stimulate the production of other hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone.

How does HCG help you lose weight?

The HCG diet is an individualized program that increases HCG in your body, promoting rapid weight loss over a 6-week period. The HCG diet boosts your metabolism, and helps you reduce the feelings of hunger. Although your calorie intake will decrease, you will still feel healthy and comfortable with this new lifestyle.

Other Ways to Utilize HCG

Additionally, HCG is used to enhance testosterone replacement therapy in Los Angeles, CA. HCG mimics a hormone called luteinizing hormone, which stimulates the testicles to produce more natural testosterone. HCG is highly recommended for patients undergoing TRT to promote the highest native testosterone levels as possible.
