At MetroMD we have been offering hormone therapy for over 10 years. Collectively our team has over 40 years of experience. Often patients ask us about HCG and the benefits. 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 specifically for the popular and effective HCG diet. HCG helps with the production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen blockers are a common theme for men who have been prescribed HCG in order to maintain a healthy hormonal balance.

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. HCG can be used to help both men and women with fertility issues.

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. This in combination with a nutritional based diet and lifestyle changes provides the best results. Our team of naturopathic doctors can help you by working with you to identify the best diet.

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. Our testosterone programs come tailored with HCG to ensure the most effective program.
