Side effects of using HCG

Do you want to prevent any potential side effects that you may experience with the HCG diet? Who doesn’t! The HCG diet can give you the ability to lose weight quickly, get fit, and totally turn your life around for the better. However, you may have heard that there could be a bit of a risk for mild side effects. Here, we will talk about the possible side effects that you can expect, as well as how to easily keep them under control.
What Side Effects to Expect from the HCG Diet
There are a few mild side effects that some patients do experience while on the HCG diet. Mostly, they have to do with the reduction in calories that the diet plan calls for. Normally patients do not experience any side effects at all while on the HCG diet. Or, if they do, these symptoms go away after just a few days of following the diet and using the drops or injections. You should see a doctor if you experience any side effects that just seem to get worse, become unbearable, or if your symptoms persist for more than a few days. Some people, despite the lack of side effects, should not follow the HCG diet. This includes women who are pregnant, could be pregnant, or are nursing.
For Headaches
Headaches are often reported when first starting the HCG diet. For most patients, you can simply take an aspirin or two in order to keep these headaches at bay. There may be some over the counter aspirins or pain relieving medications that are better at helping you with headaches than others. Before you take anything, be sure that the medication that you are taking (whether prescribed to you or over-the-counter) is OK to be taking while you are also taking HCG drops and following the HCG diet.
For Fatigue
You may very well feel more sleepy than usual for the first few days while following the HCG diet. This is normal because you are eating fewer calories than you normally would. Sometimes, this is, in part, because of the reduction of vitamins and minerals you are getting from your newer low calorie diet, as well. You might want to think about taking B12 or B vitamin cocktails while on this diet. Trying a daily vitamin and other supplements is recommended, as well, to combat fatigue.
