A 35-year-old member asked:

Is there any food or drink that can raise hCG levels?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Stephen Berns
Pathology 20 years experience
Not really: If you are referring to the recent "hcg diet", which involves using HCG as well as severe calorie restriction, i would recommend against it. Buying HCG is illegal, (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) and extreme dieting can be very dangerous. It is possible to supplement HCG through consuming your own human placental tissue (placenta pills / placental encapsulation).

Will eating sweet food affect the treatment of pinworms?

NO: Pinworm treatment is pretty straight (pardon the pun) forward. Usually 1 dose of medication, followed in a week by another dose. Sweets should do nothing.

Controversial: There is not a consensus yet. The confusing issue is that those individuals who need statis the most are also frequently at high risk for developing diabetes. I would not let this issue keep you from taking a stain if indicated.
