Medical Weight Loss
Delaware Integrative Medicine recognizes that when people start a diet, the thing they want most is Results— and fast. Most people don’t want to take 3 months to shed 20lbs, they just want it gone. This is where medical weight loss can offer a solution with our hCG diet program.
What is the hCG Diet Program?

The medically supervised hCG Diet targets fat stores while safeguarding lean muscle mass, utilizing prescription hCG. Our program includes lab testing and a tailored diet protocol, optimized with the ideal blend of nutrients for efficient weight loss.

How Does hCG Work
HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a glycoprotein containing 244 amino acids. It boosts hormone levels, including testosterone, creating an anabolic (muscle-building) state that opposes muscle breakdown (catabolic state). Muscle fibers have hormone receptors that respond to increased hormone levels from hCG intake.
Why a Medical Diet?
Our team will work closely with you to develop a customized plan tailored to your unique needs, goals, and medical history. We'll provide ongoing support, monitoring your progress every step of the way and making adjustments as needed to ensure you're on track to success. 
Prioritize Muscle Preservation with Our hCG Weight Loss Program
Preserving muscle during weight loss is essential for sustaining a healthy metabolism, functional strength, and overall body composition. Crash diets often lead to rapid weight loss, but this can primarily involve muscle loss, which adversely affects both appearance and metabolic health. With reduced muscle mass, the metabolism slows down, making weight regain likely, and rebuilding lost muscle requires significant effort. In contrast, the hCG weight loss program emphasizes muscle preservation, ensuring that weight loss primarily targets fat stores. This approach results in a leaner physique with improved muscle tone and metabolism, supporting long-term weight maintenance and overall well-being.
