Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder that occurs in 10-15% of women where hormone levels are out of balance.  Women of reproductive age should know the symptoms and what increases their risk of having polycystic ovaries.
 
The cause of PCOS is unknown but if you have a family history of it then you are 40% more likely of developing polycystic ovaries as it appears to be genetic.  The key is to recognize the symptoms early on and get tested so treatment can begin that stops any progress of this debilitating disorder.  Do you know the symptoms to watch for so you avoid the metabolic syndrome?
 
Symptoms Of PCOS
 
There are a variety of signs and symptoms associated with polycystic ovary syndrome that women might notice.  Symptoms are: excess hair growth, irregular menses, diabetes, acne, sleep apnea, mood disorders, cardiovascular disease, and weight gain.  Each woman is affected differently but weight gain typically causes these symptoms to worsen.  Once you recognize these symptoms, what action will you take?
 
Never risk your health or presume your symptoms will improve without treatment.  To get an appropriate diagnosis, Dr. Mac or Kristi will check to see if you have at least 2 of the following: excessive hair growth, irregular ovulation, and enlarged ovaries.  If PCOS is left untreated, the metabolic syndrome often ensues as significant weight gain happens due to insulin resistance, Type II Diabetes, and elevated lipids.  
 
Have You Gained Weight?
 
Frequently, weight gain has already taken place in several women who are diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome.  Weight loss through High Intensity Interval Training and a low carbohydrate diet helps many patients see an improvement in their health with as little as a 5% weight loss.  Additionally, our medically managed HCG diet plan guides women who are significantly overweight to feeling their best as they lose 15-20 pounds during the first month!

The HCG diet is an effective way to rapidly lose weight when a low calorie diet is paired with injections of HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin.  Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced during pregnancy by the placenta which is critical to the success of a pregnancy.  This hormone may also be used to treat infertility in women so becoming pregnant while receiving injections on the HCG diet is a greater possibility.
 
What Else Should You Consider?
 
The decision to start the HCG diet should weigh all the benefits and risks that specifically apply to you.  Women who are wanting to lose weight and have no plans to become pregnant need to take precautionary measures. After all, this hormone increases fertility and staying focused on losing weight is the main goal on a diet.
 
Though, the amount of HCG administered while dieting is limited to small amounts.  Comparatively, dosage amounts for fertility treatment are twice the amount of what doctors use for weight loss on the HCG diet.  Other women may have intentions of becoming pregnant but are too overweight.
 
Often, a body mass index (BMI) over 30 tends to make it more difficult to conceive compared to a healthier BMI of 18.5 to 25.  On the HCG diet, rapid weight loss occurs and a woman’s weight shifts to a healthy range where fertility is no longer an issue.  What if a pregnancy test reads positive while you are on the HCG diet?
 
Attribute That To The HCG Hormone
 
A pregnancy test determines if a woman is pregnant by measuring the presence of HCG in urine or blood. Injections of human chorionic gonadotropin are detectable on a pregnancy test and will indicate a positive result even if you are not pregnant.  Talk with Dr. Mac or Kristi today about an HCG diet in Indianapolis with consideration to pregnancy.

Each year, more individuals are in search of a diet plan targeted towards losing weight as obesity rates in adult men and women near 36%.  A variety of diet plans offer dieters with a promise of losing a specific number of pounds by solely making changes to their diet.  On the HCG diet, individuals receive HCG injections and follow an intake of 500 calories each day.  How is this possible when the average calorie intake each day is reportedly 2,640 for men and 1,785 for women?
 
The Function Of HCG
 
HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone that ensures adequate nutrients are supplied to a mother and fetus during pregnancy.  An essential part to the effectiveness of the HCG diet is the use of HCG.  Consuming only 500 calories a day alone would lead to feelings of fatigue, hunger, and moodiness.  HCG makes it possible to follow a 500 calorie intake per day as it controls your hunger by releasing fat stores into the bloodstream.
 
These fat stores may be up to 1500 calories each day so your appetite is suppressed as the body burns excess fat.  As a result, lean muscle is retained since the body distributes an effect on excess fat cells rather than muscle.  Typically, people dedicated to the program can expect to lose 1 to 2 pounds per day in areas where it is needed most.  How does retaining muscle mass affect the success of your weight loss?
 
Long-Term Weight Loss
 
One reason diet programs fail is due to losing muscle mass which slows metabolism and makes it easier to regain weight in the future.  The HCG diet is beneficial to metabolism as muscle mass stays and promotes your metabolism to continue functioning after the diet as it was during the diet.  Contact Dr. Mac or Kristi and embrace all the benefits of a HCG diet in Indianapolis to rapidly lose stubborn weight!

Weight loss is a struggle whether it be initially losing the weight or keeping it off after you lose it.  HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by women when they are pregnant to ensure a fetus is supplied with essential nutrients.  With the HCG diet, a patient takes HCG under the supervision of a physician and follows a low calorie diet.
 
Most people that are overweight want to lose weight in specific areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, and face.  Abnormal fat is stored in these areas and the HCG diet enables the body to release the fat stored there.  What can you expect on a supervised HCG diet in Indianapolis?
 
How The HCG Diet Works
 
Many diets fail because people quickly lose hope when they see no change in their weight or figure.  Weight loss is dramatic with the HCG diet with patients seeing results within the first week.  Often, a patient can expect to lose up to 1 pound per day in the first month if they follow a very low calorie diet.  Rapid weight loss is possible because the HCG hormone helps to suppress hunger and “trigger” your body to burn fat, not muscle!
Ordinarily, patients are able to remain comfortable while they eat very little.  Human chorionic gonadotropin changes your body composition in a way that favors muscle mass and supports a healthier metabolism.  In other diets, you lose muscle mass which is unhealthy for your metabolism and increases your chance of regaining the weight.
 
The Advantage Over Other Diet Programs
 
On the HCG diet, you can expect to see immediate results that are effective towards losing weight in the targeted areas.  The long-term benefit is having a lean figure with a healthy metabolism versus the usual diet program where pounds are lost but regained later on.  A supervised HCG diet in Indianapolis with Dr. Mac or Kristi is the optimum recipe for you to lose weight that gets you the body shape you desire.
