FTC and FDA Findings on HGC Hormone Weight Loss Diets

Weight Loss Evidence Through Pregnancy Hormone InjectionsFor those of you who give much value to the commissions and administrations our government has established to regulate all areas of our society, you would be interested to hear what they say about your HCG weight loss program.

And it isn’t anything new. At one point in the 1970’s HCG became the most used weight loss substance throughout the United States. That is, until the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had their word.

In 1976 the FTC ordered specific organizations and clinics that sold and distributed HCG injections to no longer describe HCG as a safe, effective, and viable weight loss program approved by the FDA.

And since that time all HCG promoters and distributers have been required to issue in writing this warning:

THESE WEIGHT REDUCTION TREATMENTS INCLUDE THE INJECTION OF HCG, A DRUG WHICH HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY OR WEIGHT CONTROL. THERE IS NO SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE THAT HCG 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-RESTRICTIVE DIETS.

On top of this written warning the FDA required labeling and advertising to make this statement: 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.

Surprisingly enough, despite such opposition from the FDA and FTC HCG continues to be a widely used weight loss option.
