The Dangers of HCG for Weight Loss

HCG diet dangers

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – which is a hormone extracted from the placenta and urine of pregnant women.  It’s only approved use is to treat infertility in women, and a few other select medical conditions.  It is NOT approved for weight loss.  In fact, the prescription drug label now must state that “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-restricted diets.”

In the United States, HCG weight loss products sold over-the-counter are now illegal.  The HCG Diet Plan was basically labeled a “health care fraud” by the FDA.  But what about getting prescription HCG from a doctor?  The FDA still cautions that “HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity.”  Again, any weight loss that people experience on the HCG diet plan is due to the very low calories consumed.
