hCG Diet Disclaimer
Disclaimer: HCG is a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
Common uses of HCG: HCG is presently relied upon as a medication for fertility and it is also used to safely promote the production of testosterone in males.It is not approved by the FDA for weight loss.
HCG Side effects:
The HCG side effects one will have to keep an eye out for include the onset of headaches, irritability, restlessness, slight water retention, tenderness of breast tissue, swelling of the injection sight, and depression. There are some rare, severe side effects as well which include the development of ovarian hyperstimulation in females. The latter condition requires immediate medical treatment and is accompanied by the following symptoms: tremendous pain in the region of the pelvis, the swelling of feet, legs, and hands, abdominal pain, abdominal swelling, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, a diminishing of urination, and weight gain. If a user of HCG products notes any side effects it is recommended that he or she cease using the products immediately and that he or she seek out the assistance of a physician.There is an enormous amount of information available online about hCG and its use for weight loss. Depending on which website you are visiting, hCG can appear as a dangerous, much maligned substance or a completely safe golden ticket to fast weight loss. While you should always work closely with a doctor anytime you are prescribed a medication, some of the potential risks surrounding an hCG weight loss program can be cleared up rather simply.
Next, is essential that the diet coupled with taking the hCG is safe. Most hCG diet programs use an extremely low caloric intake (500 calories per day), which is not safe and can be dangerous if not properly monitored. While losing weight is an important goal, it is critical that the weight lost is FAT and not lean body mass, such as muscle.
Finally, there are some health conditions or medications that may cause problems on an hCG weight loss program and it is very important that you work closely with an experienced doctor who can help you lose weight as safely as possible.
When asking about the hcg diet side effects, many think that the HCG diet plan is just one of those fad diets and may have a drastic impact on their bodies when the reality is that it will burn fat without harmful side effects.
