HOW SAFE ARE THE HCG DROPS?
USER QUESTION : I found comments about this diet saying that HCG has been debunked as an effective weight loss aid and that I’m losing weight because of the starvation diet and not the hormone. Plus, there are risks to people who may become pregnant, who may have cancer or thyroid problems. Here is a list of some of the side effects I’ve read: Ovarian Hyper-stimulation Syndrome (OHSS), Arterial Thromboembolism, Blood clots, Risk of multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, quadruplets, etc.), Abnormal enlargement of breasts in men (gynaecomastia), Over stimulation of the ovaries causing production of many ova (eggs) in women, Acne, Tiredness, Changes in mood, Irritation in area of use. Excessive fluid retention in the body tissues, resulting in swelling (edema). Hair loss, Prostate hypertrophy. So, how safe is the HCG diet?
ANSWER : Most of these are similar things one would experience if pregnant. There are some valid points made of over stimulation of ovaries, but these are all to do with the prescription grade injectable hcg. Homeopathic hcg has no known or documented side effects. The comments you read are also right in stating that it is the low calorie diet that causes weight loss. However, they are not fully explaining that hcg releases the stored fat in the body versus your body pulling from the muscle mass in your body. Eating a low calorie diet without hcg will still cause weight loss, but it will be from muscle mass and not stored fat. It will also put stress on your organs. Having hcg combined with animo acids gives your body support that it needs during a low calorie diet and tells your body to pull from fats instead of muscles and alleviates the stress on the organs.
