Anyone with Heart Disease. Women with an ovarian cyst. Those with Diabetes Type 1. Men with Testicular or Prostate Cancer. Women should not take hCG during the first two heavy days of their period. hCG can aggrivate gout, so be sure to take a vitamin pill along with Potassium Gluconate. If you have gall bladder issues, hCG can aggravate it because of the small fat intake. In over 60 years of testing and using hCG, there is not a single valid report that claims hCG is harmful or has ever caused death. Even those that make such claims on the Internet NEVER site a specific case. Over 1,000,000 people used hCG for weight loss last year with no serious side effects.
