The FDA’s role is to set-up tests and recommend safety of drug related products on the market. As an agency they are not in the medical business. As long as a drug is safe to use then it is up to the discretion of the medical doctor to prescribe it for various situations as an “off label drug” and that they are “trained to understand and know the application for”. A medical doctor has the right by law to do as they see fit to handle a patient under their care. HCG has been used to treat many various health issues and has been in existence to do so for over 50 years by the medical community.
The FDA has not approved HCG Therapy for weight loss. 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.
Legal Notice and Disclaimer: The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved Human Chorionic Gonaditropin (HCG) for use in weight loss treatment. The use of HCG for weight loss is an off label use, which means that it is considered safe when prescribed by and under the guidance of a licensed physician. HCG is FDA-approved to treat health conditions other than weight loss, and has been used to do so for over 45 years. Because an individual’s weight loss depends on a number of factors, A New You (Diet Designs Enterprises, LLC) does not guarantee any specific weight loss result. Information provided on this website is based on analysis of scientific studies, historical research, and results from other former HCG patients. Additional information is available upon request.
