History of the HCG diet
While researching the HCG diet and its effects on weight loss, in Dr. Simeon’s Pounds and Inches protocol, he discovered that it could actually help obese patients lose enough weight that they can eventually discontinue their diabetes medications. In Pounds & Inches he stated, ‘In an obese patient suffering from a fairly advanced case of stable diabetes of many years duration in which the blood sugar my range from 3-400 mg%, it is often possible to stop all anti-diabetic medication after the first few days of HCG diet. The blood sugar continues to drop from day to day and often reaches normal values in 2-3 weeks.’ Of course, you’ll always want to consult your physician before discontinuing any prescribed medications and starting the HCG diet.
