Most likely: I have seen many of my patients on my HCG true diet lose 20 to 30 pounds, or more, and along with this weight loss is a significant reversal of diabetes and high blood pressure. They cut their dose of medicines in half over time, and some discontinue the meds altogether. This has been seen with other studies. Consequently, it is the obesity that is the problem, so lose the weight and get healthy.
