Everyone knows that it’s healthy to lose weight if you’re carrying excess pounds – as most people are. What may be less obvious is that losing weight not only improves your quality of life, but also gives you more years with which to enjoy it! A recent article on verywellhealth.com cites that “The WHO estimates that at least 2.8 million people worldwide die each year due to being overweight or obese.” Conversely, it explains that “Obesity has been linked to a number of chronic diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, to name a few.” Obesity is a problem that much of the country has been struggling with for years now – so don’t feel alone if you’ve been struggling too!

Dr. Shakov sees you as a whole, and not just pounds to lose. Each patient’s weight loss needs and goals are unique, and with medical weight loss, you will get the customized plan you need.

hCG is the pregnancy hormone found in the human body. When used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet, it has been shown to help burn fat, reduce inches, and a result in a more sustainable weight loss than with a diet alone. hCG injections are daily and self-administered, after you’ve had your initial consultation with Dr. Shakov. After that, you’ll maintain scheduled visits with the doctor throughout your weight loss journey. If you need an extra boost to get started on an effective diet that improves your overall health, hCG injections are a great option to consider.
