IAPAM Comments on the Importance of Pharmaceutical hCG

September 27, 2011 |

The IAPAM reports on the dangers of improperly sourced hCG for medical weight loss programs, and educates physicians on how to safely source hCG, and how to effectively and profitably deliver an hCG Diet and Weight Loss Program to their patients.  One critical success factor is to attend expert training through programs like the IAPAM’s hCG Training Program (

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) for weight loss is everywhere on the internet.  One cannot google “hCG” or “hCG diet” without seeing these sensational headlines: “Lose 1-2 LBS/DAY Buy hCG,” “Lose 23 lbs in 23 Days For Only $70,” or “Buy hCG Here – Save Up To 72%.”  However, as Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM comments, “it is quite amazing that so many people want to put their long-term health at risk by answering an internet or Facebook ad, or watching a YouTube video on hCG.  It is equally disconcerting that so many physicians launch hCG Medical Weight Management Programs, without being properly trained in administering an hCG Protocol, sourcing hCG, understanding patient selection criteria and patient testing, and the common medical contraindications for hCG.”
To meet the need for this type of in-depth, physician-led hCG training, the IAPAM has developed an exclusive program for physicians looking to add hCG and Medically Supervised Weight Loss programs to their existing practices.  The IAPAM’s hCG Training ( is offered the Friday before each of the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.   The IAPAM’s next hCG training sessions will be held on October 21, 2011 and December 2, 2011 in Scottsdale.
Mr. Russell also comments on the controversy surrounding homeopathic hCG.  “There are a myriad of ‘hCG’ distributors in cyberspace, who do not warn consumers about the potential health risks associated with taking hCG and engaging in an associated Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). The bottom line is that hCG is an FDA controlled substance and requires the prescription of a physician. You have no idea what is actually in the hCG you buy on the internet, and you could be risking your health by doing so,” cautions Mr. Russell.   The IAPAM’s faculty has developed a program where all the critical issues associated with hCG and the IAPAM’s Exclusive hCG Protocol are discussed.  The IAPAM is the only physician-led training association to offer education on how to safely and successfully add hCG and Medical Weight Management to a medical practice.
