HCG injections

Dr. are the HCG injections to lose weight available in S. Africa?
Can you please recommend someone in Jhb/Pta (Gauteng)
I am a bit nervous ordering them via the web.

Also, do they work or are they the same as a B12 injection?

Thank you very much

Dear Vienna
HCG injections are totally different to B12 injections. HCG is a growth hormone, while vit B12 is a vitamin that prevents so-called pernicious anaemia. There is no proof that HCG injections promote weightloss in adults and such injections can in fact be most harmful. Please do NOT start using these injections. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone, and medications for the replacement of HCG are available with a doctor's prescription. They are usually used for women who are struggling to fall pregnant and men who need to increase their sperm count. The use of HCG injections together with the so-called HCG diet is highly controversial. Seeing that this diet only contains 500 kcal anyone will lose weight on it even if they don't have the injections. Submitting to HCG injections without a medical reason (e.g. a low sperm count) is very risky and may cause all kinds of unwanted side-effects. I think you should rather stick to a health low-fat diet and daily exercise to lose weight.
Take care

From insulin resistance, to low blood sugar high blood pressure, high cholesterol dtc etc I was told I won't be able to lose weight. Well in 6weeks I lost 19.5kg.

I have only recently heard about HCG. What kind of side effects are there from taking it for weight loss? A friend of mine has used it 4 times in a year - for approximately 2 weeks each time. Is this problematic? Where can I read up more about it? Thanks!

Hi there, I have used this product and had no side effects. you have to be careful to get the real HCG ( must be branded and have expiry date). I lost 16 kg within one round. I was the testing bunny ;-P My family and friends did well on it too. I ordered mine via www.hcgmiraclediet.com
