Is hCG diet dangerous?

Is hCG diet dangerous?

Its probably safe: It will raise testosterone levels in men. The HCG diet has had side effects, but those are due to rapid weight loss (gall stones) and eating only 500 calories per day, starvation is not a great plan. I doubt the HCG itself causes many or any problems if used in low doses. ...Read more

How fast do hcg levels rise after taking the hcg drops?

How fast do hcg levels rise after taking the hcg drops?

Unable to answer: I googled hCG drops. If you're buying them on the Internet, They are not even human chronic gonadotropin. Therefore, Your hCG level would not rise. If you're getting them from a physician, you should ask the physician because he or she would know the composition of what you're taking. Sorry I cannot give you a better answer without more information like the brand of what you're using. ...Read more

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

400 lbs, 5'9". Perfect blood pressure & blood sugar. High insulin and testosterone levels. Abnormal weight gain since childhood. Strict diet. Why????

Other Labs?: I hope your thyroid has been checked and is normal. Although typically those with low thyroid causing weight gain are short and you are rather tall! It is probably a simple matter of more calories taken in than you are burning off which is putting you in a positive calorie balance resulting in weight gain. Drink only water, eat 8 fruits and veggies daily and ramp exercise to 10,000 steps daily ...Read more

Drops worthless: Drops are worthless. You need a qualified physician to administer correctly the injection HCG and the original 500 calorie diet with strict adherence.

Depends: If you don't have diabetes it won't even go up enough to be noticed. If you have diabetes, it can go up and stay up for a long time -- unless you're on medication, in which case it may go up only slightly and drop down again quickly -- for instance if you've taken a recent injection of Insulin which is still acting in your body. ...Read more

Info abou the hCG diet, and after yoy reach your goal weight do u continue the drops and do you continue eating just 500 calories?

HCG weight loss: No one can survive really on a 500 calorie diet (at least not happily or for long ). While on the HCG diet although you consume 500 calories per day, your body is able to derive the rest of it's caloric needs from its extensive fat reserves. Your body burns calories to breathe, for your heart to pump even for the act of eating itself. I would not advise any kind dieting if you have a normal bmi. ...Read more

Do u sugest me to use hCG diet drops, because am overweight, and i want to loose weight fast in may be 1mnth, am 88kg and i want to reduce almost 30kgs.

Do u sugest me to use hCG diet drops, because am overweight, and i want to loose weight fast in may be 1mnth, am 88kg and i want to reduce almost 30kgs.

Lose weight fast: Well, the goal should be to lose weight in a healthy way. Losing weight rapidly with a diet or pill is a setup for failure, or the yo-yo effect (when you stop the diet you regain the weight back plus more). Eat healthy (cutting back on carbs and sugar) and do cardiovascular exercise (not walking but running, cycling, swimming, elliptical, zumba, etc). You can still lose weight quickly doing this. ...Read more

Hcg hormone free drops can cause infertility? 
By using it and following the diet?

Not likely: Just like HCG drops have no proven clinical evidence that is does anything beneficial, the same is true for "hcg hormone free drops". These are all food supplements with no proven benefit, and are generally a waste of money. The most important part of any weight loss program is following a calorie restricted diet and doing exercise. ...Read more

My daughter was on the omni diet. She took 4 pregnancy tests and they have all came back positive.  She was told there is not enough hcg in the drops.

Maybe pregnant: If she was taking unregulated nonFDA approved BHCG drops then it is hard to know. If the home tests are positive then one has to assume it is a real pregnancy before assuming it is a side effect of a diet supplement. She should see an Obgyn for confirmation. ...Read more

Not wise because...: The HCG diet is extreme. Those who lose weight fast tend to regain fast.The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes.Sugars ; simple carbs cause weight gain; also avoid fried foods. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is important! see http://bit.Ly/19xax7. ...Read more

Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?

It's silly stuff: The 'hcg diet' is an 800-calorie severely restrictive diet and this is why you lose weight. The overpriced placebo that is tacked on will probably do nothing. Further, HCG does not turn ovarian cysts cancerous. Why not take the money and join a fitness club, make friends, and embark on a far happier and less fear-darkened life? Cheers. ...Read more

Can u take Alli and hCG drops together then take a multivitamin at bedtime. Of course i plan to diet and exercise. Im pretty much obese?

Yes: Sure you can. It is not clear that HCG is absorbed and functional when taken orally. Probably not. Alli does work and does so by blocking fat absorption. Be careful of your fat intake because it can cause abdomnial cramps, etc. That said you will absorb most of the vitamins except the fat soluble ones. Vitamins a, d, e and k should be taken at another time so you can absorb them. ...Read more
