Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Actually, no.: This probably would not work to lose weight. It goes up in the beginning of pregnancy, peaks and falls slightly by term. When it goes up, the mother increases in weight and the baby also grows, so it is unlikely that this would result in or enhance weight loss. As of december 6, 2011, the fda has prohibited the sale of "homeopathic" and otc HCG diet products and declared them illegal. ...Read more

I'm taking bioidentical hormones due to menapause and would like to do the hCG diet protocol to lose some weight, can I do both at the same time?

HCG: I am curious why a 36 year old would be on bioidentical hormones unless you had a surgical menopause. That being said, I have combined HCG with bioidenticals for my patients and they work fine together as the HCG is only around for 40 days. ...Read more

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 more

Can this new hCG diet really help you lose weight?

Can this new hCG diet really help you lose weight?

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 more

What is the best brand or quality of hCG liquid drops to lose weight ?

What is the best brand or quality of hCG liquid drops to lose weight ?

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 more

I'm starting hCG due to low t will i gain muscle and lose weight? What are the cosmetic benifits?

I'm starting hCG due to low t will i gain muscle and lose weight? What are the cosmetic benifits?

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

Can i take steroids for my lungs while taking hCG to lose weight?

Can i take steroids for my lungs while taking hCG to lose weight?

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 more
