Since 1975, the FDA has required labeling and advertising of HCG to state:
“HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it 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.”
This does not mean its not safe, nor does it mean its not effective. What it means is that there are no double blind clinical studies that have been reported in peer reviewed clinical journals supporting the use of HCG as a dietary aid. You should talk to people who have done the diet and consult your physician.
ALL WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN PREGNANT & ALL MEN WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH PUBERTY
HAVE HAD HCG IN THEIR BODY AT FAR HIGHER LEVELS THAN THOSE TAKING HCG AS PART
OF THE HCG DIET.
Past side effects, although minor, were reported by patients taking HCG at
50-70 times the dosage prescribed for the HCG Diet (10,000 I.U.'s prescribed
for increased ovulation vs 125-200 I.U.s prescribed for HCG Diet); we are not aware of any side effects reported
from taking HCG for the diet. All past side effects from taking high dosage
HCG were similar to symptoms that many women typically experience during pregnancy,
such as delayed, shortened or prolonged menstual cycles or minor cramping.
These statements have NOT been reviewed by the FDA.
