Is hCG diet safe for me?Ovarian cancer 2007, total hysterectomy and chemo done.I'm 38 years old, 5 feet, 67kgs.

Bad choice: The HCG diet prescribes a severely calorie-restricted diet and prescribes a pricey placebo to go with it, then attributes the success of the diet to the placebo. You are smart enough to realize that (1) you don't need this, and (2) the way to achieve the body you want is by changing your lifestyle & how you think about food and fitness. Congratulations on seeking a better life after a cancer cure. ...Read more

At 27, I had ovarian cancer and then a hysterectomy. Is HRT safe for me? My cancer was malignant dysgermanoma.

Yes: Before your ovaries were removed, they made hormones (hrt) so you should be fine using replacement after the surgery. That particular type of cancer should not be affected by replacement. A person with breast cancer, active blood clots, certain types of uterine cancer or undiagnosed vaginal bleeding should not use hrt. ...Read more

Don't worry: This is an extreme calorie restricted diet -- which is the only reason it works -- and you also spend a chuck of money for a placebo "hcg". I am glad you seems to have had a favorable outcome with your tumor and hope you will improve the quality of your survival by taking an interest in real physical fitness, not fad diets. You deserve the best -- give yourself this gift. ...Read more

Is it safe to use the hCG diet?I am a case of ovarian cancer stage 3, had total hysterectomy and 6 cycles chemo last 2007.I'm 5 feet tall, 67 kilos.

Yes: I will probably take heat for this but I am one of those doctors that believes in the HCG diet. I've not seen any patient have trouble or deleterious health effects from this weight loss. If followed, weight loss does occur. Most gain their weight back afterwards because they don't follow a maintenance plan for the 3 weeks after finishing hcg. If you do, the weight stays off. ...Read more
