According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people becoming obese has doubled since 1980. In 2008, there were about 200 million men and nearly 300 million women who were obese. These numbers could still multiply if no one would take steps in order to deal with obesity. In line with the increasing number of obese people, current advancements in science brought the development of oral HCG to treat obesity.
What is oral HCG for obesity treatment?
Obesity is a medical condition wherein the body max index (BMI) is greater than 30 kg/m2. BMI is a measurement that compares the body weight and height. It categorizes the person as underweight, overweight or obese.
Being obese has numerous disadvantages. It predisposes one to various diseases such as heart problems, diabetes type 2, breathing problems during sleep, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer. Obesity also lowers the life expectancy of a person and lowers the quality of life because of the accompanying public humiliation and damaged self esteem. People who are fat are usually bullied nowadays. Long time ago, obesity is a sign for wealth and fertility. Even though there are countries that still hold to that correlation, most of the countries nowadays tend to despise obesity.
Causes of Obesity
The most common causes of obesity are as follows: too much intake of food, lack of physical activities, and genetic susceptibility. Other causes of obesity are psychiatric illnesses such as depression, intake of medications (steroids), and endocrine problems (hypothyroidism).
While there are various anti obesity medications that can be bought over-the-counter, diet and exercise are still the mainstay treatment for obesity. The diet should be low in fat and sugar yet high in fiber. The technique in effective dieting is to reduce the calorie count and eat in small frequent feedings. Do not skip meals as this could trigger hunger and psychological compromise. If one feels too much hunger, the person is at risk of over eating especially when one thinks that doubling the food serving at this time is alright since a meal was skipped. Exercise should be done regularly and should surpass the amount of calories taken. This is to ensure that stored fats would be used for energy. Once the stored fats are used up, it decreases in amount and thus causes weight loss.
In case that diet and exercise are not successful in reducing one’s weight, anti obesity drugs can be helpful. One should take note that diet and exercise should still be done so to prevent sagging of the skin. There are a number of people who rely much on anti obesity drugs and do not engage in exercises. What will happen is that fats would be eliminated in the body and the skin (which was stretched in order to accommodate the increasing number of body fats) would not be able to adjust to the decrease in body fats thus will end up sagging. Stretch mark is also a major concern for this. To prevent these problems, exercise should not be eliminated so to give the skin enough time to adjust to the decreasing amount of body fats.
One anti-obesity medication that most obese people are trying out now is the oral HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG is commonly known as a glycoprotein that is being produced during pregnancy but actually, it can also be produced by the pituitary gland by both men and women (even not pregnant). Aside from its significant role in maintaining pregnancy, HCG has the capability to mobilize fats thus contributing to decrease in body weight. The use of HCG as an anti-obesity agent has been around for quite some time already. Its usage has been in controversy but still, there are people using it and found success in terms of losing weight.
HCG as an anti-obesity agent can come in both oral and intramuscular form. For oral, the agent is placed under the tongue and is allowed to dissolve. Oral HCG is taken twice a day: early in the morning and before going to sleep. On the other hand, the intramuscular form is injected every 5 days. It is quite expensive than the oral form and is very painful (especially to those with low pain tolerance).
The usage of oral HCG needs to be supplemented with proper diet. The diet should consist of no more than 500 calories per day. The diet should be adhered strictly for 21 days so that weight loss can be achieved. With proper diet and intake of oral HCG, one can lose up to 3 pounds of weight a day.
If you think that oral HCG is the solution for your obesity problem, you can try it out but be sure to talk to your doctor first. Ask your physician about his/her conceived thoughts regarding oral HCG and its possible side effects. If you are convinced with how oral HCG can help you, you can now purchase this drug on any pharmacy or health shops near you. If you do not want to roam around your city, you can always surf the internet. There are numerous online shops that sell oral HCG and deliver this product right in front of your door. When buying things online, be sure to check the delivery and refund policy of the shop. Online shops usually have cheaper price than offline shops because of their low maintenance cost. So if you want to save, try online shopping.
