HCG Diet Injection Programs for Women and Men
Comprehensive Medical Assessment
Remember, the goal is for you to lose the weight and keep it off.As part of your history, we will also review any medications you are taking. There are some medications which can cause weight gain. One that comes to mind is a class of medications called Beta Blockers, medications in this class will make it almost impossible to lose weight. There are other medications which can affect weight loss and if you are on medications they will all be reviewed.Once the review of the history is completed and physical examination will be performed. The physical will include the standard physical but we will also check your weight, percent body fat, percent water weight, percent muscle, and the Body Mass Index. These parameters will be monitored on a weekly basis to chart your progress.
Our 4 Week HCG Program
All weight loss programs start with a consultation. During the consultation we review your medical history, family history and social history. At this time, Dr. Bissoon will determine if you need laboratory diagnostic testing. As part of your visit, we will either draw the blood in our office or give you a prescription and you can go to any laboratory of your choice.
After the blood is drawn, we will perform a medical examination to include your height, weight, percent body fat, percent muscle and the Body Mass Index. In addition we may also take measurements and photographs. These parameters will be monitored on subsequent visits to monitor your progress.
Once the physical examination is completed, Dr. Bissoon will review the HCG diet in detail with you. He will review what you can eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Although the HCG Diet does not require exercise, we encourage patients to get 20-25 minutes of cardiovascular exercise as this starts you on the road to life style change.
Dr. Bissoon will then teach you the technique of administering self injections. This training is easily learned by most all patients rather quickly.
We will make up a 30 day supply of pre-filled HCG syringes. This makes it easy for you to do you own daily injections without having to draw up the exact amount everyday. The syringes are placed in cold pack with an ice pack. Once you get home, you will remove the syringes from the bag and place it in the refrigerator.
We advise all patients that once you finish injecting yourself, you cannot dispose of the used syringes in the garbage. We recommend you go to the pharmacy and get a small Bio-Hazard container (red container) or bring the used syringes back to the office for disposal.
For follow-up, we prefer to weigh in weekly.
