Dear Bet
The use of HCG or any other hormone injections for slimming purposes in adults is not recommended and can be potentially dangerous. Rather use a low-fat, energy-reduced diet and plenty of daily exercise to lose weight. This is a safer option than to have injections which you either don't need or which can disturb your metabolism.
Take care
