HCG is prescribed for Weight Loss at the Discretion of our Physicians
Use of HCG to treat obesity or for medical weight loss treatment is not an FDA approved use of this prescription drug. A patient’s physician may prescribe HCG for an unapproved medical purpose or off-label use of the drug because the use of this drug has not generally caused serious adverse side effects when administered to patients for its approved use in treating infertility. Allowing physicians professional discretion to prescribe HCG in treating obesity or for patient weight loss is not based upon any governmental determination that HCG is effective for such use.
The use of HCG to treat obesity or for use in medical weight loss treatment combined with a low calorie diet with recommended exercise is not an FDA approved use of HCG and is prescribed at the discretion of our physician based upon the physician’s clinical assessment of the patient’s medical history and diagnostic laboratory report combined with the perceived benefit to be derived by the patient from the medication when combined with a healthy diet plan and/or exercise.
In regards to hCG this is the FDA’s Statement: 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.
Medical Disorders Revealed by Medical History or Lab
A patient’s medical laboratory diagnostic tests or medical history may reveal other medical conditions or disorders indicating the need for medical treatment other than , or in addition to, medical weight loss treatment. The diagnostic and physician fees and costs associated with such other medical conditions are not included in the above fees for this single therapy. The patient shall be referred to their primary care physician with regard to medical treatments not provided by HCG Slim Track, or the treating physician.

Individual Results Will Vary
Although a patient may lose 5 pounds a week or more on the HCG Slim Track program, HCG Slim Track does not guarantee results. Weight loss depends on many variables, such as adherence to the diet, how physically active the patient is, and how well they respond to the HCG, that are completely out of the control of HCG Slim Track, its staff, and its Medical Director. Though we will provide you with the tools and information to enable your success, we can not guarantee that you will lose weight.
