|Professional monitoring is essential.|
It should be known that hCG is a prescription drug that MUST be dispensed and monitored by a licensed physician or practitioner. In addition, hCG varies in quality and purity, therefore, I acquire my supply from a very reputable compounding pharmacy. Because the hormone is collected from the urine of pregnant women, it is imperative that safety measures are in place to prevent contamination and risk. It must also be said that the FDA does not approve of hCG for weight loss. However, when I looked carefully at the studies, I could find no long-lasting negative side-effects. We do not have a long-term double-blind placebo controlled study however, 50 years of clinical evidence and use of hCG for other problems show no known risks (that I can find to date). There are some contraindications and some patients that will have to be monitored very closely due to certain health conditions, so dieters must do their research and choose a physician carefully.
