No one knows: First of all, no one knows for sure if HCG really helps with weight loss. Those following the "hcg diet" only eat 500 calories a day & you will lose weight on that diet whether you take HCG or not. Many who advise that diet say the shots work best. As for the liquids, i know of no objective research showing one brand is better than another so I have no way of giving a good answer to your question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: You must follow the diet originally created by dr. Simeon. If you are getting hungry than you are not on real HCG or the proper dose. The only way to do this diet is under supervision of a qualified physician and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet. When done the right way, you will not be hungry. The wrong nuts have high fat content which is counter to the diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How safe is it to take the oral homeopathic hCG drops to lose weight. Everyone seems to be losing a lot on it. My friend joined "shape reclaimed".
Not recommended: Homeopathic HCG was taken off the market in december 2011. The fda and ftc issued warning letters to multiple companies selling these products for making unsubstantiated claims. http://tinyurl.com/mqklddh homeopathic HCG differs from products given by injection, which are still on the market. Besides the daily injections, a 500 calorie diet is also required. The HCG supposedly prevents hunger. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is hcg? How Does hCG and vit b injections help one lose weight? Will vit b 12 capsules alone have similar affects on weight loss?
None really: Hcg is not known for its cosmetic results for the face. You don't want to lose the structural fat that supports the features of the face, by extreme weight loss. It can't be replaced, except by fillers temporarily. Make sure you have this discussion with your doctor before using it, so you don't replace one problem for another. Bio identical hormones should also be discussed if you're a candidate. ...Read more
Go see your doctor: Despite what ads & marketing suggest, there's no proof that HCG causes weight loss. In fact, fda frowns upon sales of homeopathic HCG products for this purpose (http://goo.Gl/w863r). Talk to your doc about your wt concerns since oral steroids can cause weight gain while inhaled steroids are less likely to do so. But don't forget that you need to be able to breathe if you're going to lose weight! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Heavy bleeding after taking hcg for 23 days in efforts to lose weight
Is bleeding normal after ending program?
No.: The HCG diet has never actually been proven to be beneficial (anyone will lose weight on 800 cal diet!) and as an endocrinologist I do not believe in it even if it helps weight loss. It is very similar to a hormone called LH and causes changes in progesterone and estrogen. Bleeding after can happen if there was a thickened endometrial lining. Get pregnancy test if possible and see your Gyn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is the hCG hormone bad for you? Why does it help you lose weight? Does it make you throw up? Looking for opinions or advice on this.
I'm currently on lamictal (25mg, titrating over 2 months to 100). Would it be safe to take homeopathic hCG with this? Am also on dextroamphetamine and methylphenidate and just can't lose weight!
Homeopathic HCG: Homeopathic HCG won't interact with Lamictal or your other medicines, but it's questionable whether it will help you any. In fact, in 2011 the fda & ftc removed these products from the market because of making deceptive claims in their ads. They are now illegal. http://tinyurl.com/85ap9ym this is not the case with traditional homeopathic remedies which have been in use for 200+ years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
