HCG Injections

Diabetes is a long-lasting health condition that affects your metabolism. It interferes with how the body process food into energy. Your body breaks down sugar and releases it into your bloodstream. As a result, there will be an increase in sugar levels in your body. It causes metabolic issues and weight gain.

Can Diabetics do the HCG Diet?

First, there is no cure for diabetes and any positive results from the HCG diet regarding this condition could be purely coincidental and obviously cannot be guaranteed. However, some diabetics with type 2  have found that after completing the HCG diet, their condition has been far more manageable. Nonetheless, people with type 1 conditions do not usually see much of a change after completing the protocol.

Fortunately, it is safe for diabetics to do the weight loss program using the hormone. However, you must consult your healthcare provider before beginning this or any diet, especially if you are in the treatment period of your condition. Any results one way or the other will depend completely on your body. The eating pattern that you follow on the HCG diet is suitable for patients who are trying to lose weight.
