Safety and Quality Care for Weight Loss in Houston, TX
You have a lot of options when it comes to weight loss, and it can be quite overwhelming trying to distinguish between what really works, the fad diets, and the gimmicks. Not only that, there are a lot of risky, unhealthy, and even illegal weight loss programs available on the internet. Use caution when considering your options
At Memorial Weight Loss Clinic we want you to make the best choice when it comes to weight loss. The FDA has compiled a list of illegal weight loss supplements that if used, could cause a host of health problems. Please use caution when considering using any diet pill medication without the supervision of a licensed physician.

If you are considering enrolling in a weight loss program at a clinic keep in mind that both Lipo-B and HCG injections are level 3, high risk injections, meaning that you run the risk of getting a serious infection if the medication is not sterile. The pharmacy that your chosen weight loss clinic procures its medications can affect its quality of care. Since both Lipo-B and HCG injections are compounded at a compounding pharmacy it is important to ask whether the pharmacy is PCAB (Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board) accredited. It is the scary truth that not all compounding pharmacies are as strictly regulated as you might think. PCAB Accreditation ensures the physician and patient that they are receiving products that are regularly tested for potency, sterility, and beyond use dating. The protocols and procedures are set up to ensure that the compounds made in a PCAB Accredited compounding pharmacy are done exactly the same every time so there is no variance from one batch to the next. Accredited pharmacies are also required to use the highest quality chemicals available. Absorption and bioavailability, especially hormones, depends on the size of the particle. The highest quality chemicals have the smallest particle size which can become problematic when you receive a compound made with a lower grade chemical. At Memorial Weight Loss Clinic we source all of our Lipo-B and HCG from Village Compounding Pharmacy, the premier PCAB accredited compounding pharmacy in Texas.
