The American Medical Association (AMA) has recently released a position statement declaring HCG diet supplement as NOT effective. Most of our patients find little surprise in this declaration, since they have tried many types of “Fad Diet Supplements” which produced little result.
It is commendable to see a well respected medical society voice their concern over weight loss interventions that produce NO verifiable benefit except drain the dollars from your wallet. Hopefully we will hear a louder voice from the medical community discussing what does and does not work in producing healthier weight individuals. It’s about time the crazy claims by over-the-ccounter supplement companies are kept in check with accurate information.
