Consent For Treatment With hCG
Enter Initials in each box to verify you understand each topic
The HCG Protocol is for the reduction of excessive weight. A key component of the protocol is the use of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The hCG will be administered orally. The use of HCG for weight loss was first identified by A.T.W. Simeons, M.D. in the 1960s. The publication of his book, Pounds and Inches. The New Approach To Obesity in 1969 has made his protocol available globally. This protocol does include dramatic calorie restriction during the rapid weight loss phase. *
The HCG protocol is designed to yield rapid weight loss, often reported at 1/2 to 1 pound per day during the weight loss phase of the program. Our protocol includes features to help the maintenance of lean muscle mass during the rapid weight loss phase.
By bringing your weight into a more healthy range (BMI of 18 to 23 for men and 20 to 25 for women) the benefit would include improvement in the bodyʼs maximum functioning with a well known decrease in many health concerns including, but not limited to, risks of developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. *
Risks and Complications
Possible side-effects of hCG may include transient headache or allergic reaction. The use of hCG for other medical treatments is at a much higher dosage (as is used during fertility treatment for both males and females). There is no evidence that the use of the small doses in Dr. Simeons protocol has any effect on increasing or decreasing fertility. For clients with high blood pressure who are on medication there is always a concern that they may require a decrease in the dosage of medication as they lose weight because of a natural improvement of blood pressure. For clients with diabetes who are on medication or insulin there is always a concern that they may require a decrease in the dosage of medication as they lose weight because of a natural improvement in blood sugar levels. For clients who are prone to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) there is a risk that their blood sugar may become low at different times during the day. *
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding (female client)
The use of hCG in the doses used in our protocol will not have any known effect on the clientʼs ability to become pregnant. We do not start treatment on a pregnant woman. If a client becomes pregnant during the treatment she is to discontinue treatment during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Treatment will not be started while a woman is breastfeeding. By signing this consent I assert that I am not pregnant or breastfeeding. *
The FDA has not approved hCG for weight loss; itʼs use for weight loss is consider an “off label” application. The use of 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. hCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity.
