What are the side effects of hCG weight lose treatment in long and short term?

What are the side effects of hCG weight lose treatment in long and short term?

Doesn't sound safe: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with sec. Hypogonadism. My endocrinologist doc. Gives me treatment with hCG 1 ovitrelle at 10 days. How long it's safe to follow this.

In men, it can increase testosterone production from the testicles, but it will not cure your problem if you have secondary hypogonadism, as this is a problem in the pituitary or hypothalamus. Unfortunately, the longer you use it, the more dependent your body will become on it. ...Read more
