Having received his medical degree in 1983 from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Dr. Angelo Consiglio has been practicing medicine for more than 30 years. Angelo Consiglio, MD, is trained in using human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to induce rapid weight loss in patients.
HCG is a hormone that is naturally produced by the female body during pregnancy. Used by clinicians to manage weight loss, hCG changes how the patient loses the weight when compared to traditional diets. The hormone can help the patient lose up to one pound a day without the feeling of hunger or loss of energy. Many believe that the presence of hCG causes feelings of nausea in pregnant females, thereby suppressing appetite and their caloric intake.
HCG is administered orally and intravenously; however, only direct injection into the bloodstream by a licensed clinician has proven effective in raising the presence of the hormone in the bloodstream. Additionally, hCG promotes a muscle-building, anabolic state, which leads to a leaner physique.
