Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Beta HCG : A very good question. The pills and injections given in the "hcg diet" will cause blood and urine levels of bhcg to rise. However, two measurements, a week or more apart, should differentiate between pregnancy ( where the levels will rise predictably) and diet drugs, assuming you are taking a constant dose for the diet treatments. ...Read more

Is the hCG diet and injections safe and effective?

Is the hCG diet and injections safe and effective?

NO: I get asked this question a lot. I tell patients think about what you're doing exactly: 1. Taking a hormone that can modulate other hormones and is only elevated during pregnancy (un-natural) 2. You're ingesting merely 500 calories, some docs have modified it to 750 calories. But still too low for any person. It works as an immediate, fast tool for weight loss but not for good! ...Read more

I'm 9 wks pregnant & vegan & have high B12 stores (supplements).I stopped taking B12 for a week to reduce levels. Does fetus access intake or stores?

Stores: Liver stores about a year's worth of B12 in some one with normal B12 levels. However, B12 is not the only nutrient to be concerned about as a vegan, You should take at least Vitamin D supplement in addition to B12. However, It is imperative that you discuss any medications, including non-prescription medications with your doctor. Wish you good health and a healthy baby. ...Read more
