Please note these important points

This HCG program is offered to existing patients of Dr. Constantinides. Prospective participants must first be admitted to our services and medically evaluated to determine if this is an appropriate approach to weight loss for them. (more info). Initial laboratory testing or alternative dietary programs may be suggested or required before a patient can be enrolled in the program.

Patients with the following conditions cannot be accepted into the program:

  • If you have a history of heart disease and are taking nitrates for it.
  • If you have diabetes and take insulin by injection only.
  • If you have a history of cancer.
  • If you have anemia.

Please discuss alternative weight-loss therapies with Dr. Constantinides.

Indications and usage: HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
