What Are the HCG Diet Dangers?

As with any weight loss attempt, HCG diet dangers also exist. What are they? For starters, if you decide to branch out on your own apart from following the plan because you want to lose weight faster, you could be putting your body at risk.

The plan is there for a reason. You can also thwart your weight loss attempts by failing to let your physician know that you have other health problems where losing weight can be dangerous.

For example, if you’re a diabetic and want to lose weight in order to get off diabetes medication, you can’t lose weight without closely monitoring your glucose levels. So let your doctor know up front about any condition you have that might cause trouble with this diet.

There are also HCG diet dangers for people who have any type of weight loss disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Those disorders need to be treated by a physician apart from any type of weight loss plan.

Taking the injections or drops when you’re already seriously underweight can cause consequences for your body. You should also never pass the needle you use for injections to someone else to also use as this can transmit diseases.
