The new weight loss drug Qsymia was recently approved by the FDA, its first weight loss drug approval in 13 years.
Not only is Qsymia difficult to pronounce and spell, it is also proven less effective than our prescription hCG diet. While on Qsymia, patients lost only 1.9 pounds per month, while the hCG diet is proven for fast weight loss, up to a pound per day!
A natural alternative to experimental new weight loss pills is the hCG diet, which dates back over 50 years.
hCG was originally discovered in 1954 by Endocrinologist Dr. A Simeons, and has since been proven effective at prodicing fast weight loss, safely and without turning patients into a guinea pig.
Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG , is naturally produced in the placenta during pregnancy to help a woman’s body access her fat stores instead of her muscle to feed and regulate development of the embryo.
Another FDA approved use of prescription hCG is for the treatment of infertility in women and delayed puberty in young boys. hCG is widely considered to be the best weight loss aid available.
A new drug named Qsymia has recently been approved by the FDA for prescription. Qsymia is intended to aid in weight loss.
Qsymia is actually a combination of 2 different medications.
Qsymia is the blend of phentermine, which was once the "phen" part of the weight loss drug fen-phen, and topiramate, an anti-seizure medication commonly prescribed to epilepsy patients.
So despite the FDA approval of the Qsymia diet pill, it is important to consider possible risks and rewards of medication before consuming large quantities of it, just because the FDA says it's ok.
According to WebMD, "Topiramate causes weight loss in several ways, including increasing feelings of fullness, making foods taste less appealing, and increasing calorie burning." (Read more)
Statistics reveal that Qsymia doesn't necessarily aid fast weight loss in patients, not to a measurable degree anyway.
The study states that "After one year of treatment with the recommended and highest daily dose of Qsymia, patients had an average weight loss of 6.7 percent and 8.9 percent, respectively, over treatment with placebo." (Read more)
This amounts to an average weight loss of 7.8% in a year and .65% of body weight lost per month, or 1.9 pounds-per-month for a 300 pound person and 1.1 pounds-per-month for a 170 pound woman.
Although Qsymia is only able to deliver nominal weight loss, the main concern over its health risks center around possible side effects like making food taste less appealing and using a prescription drug intended to treat seizures to now treat obesity.
Prescription hCG is naturally occurring in humans and has been administered for over 50 years with no major reported side effects, and a history of promoting fast weight loss.
Since hCG is a hormone produced naturally in the placenta of pregnant women, enabling them to feed the fetus from fat stores instead of muscle, hCG is natural and safe, and will not produce unnatural side effects in patients.
Julie Wright, CEO of Diet Doc Weight Loss Plans notes that "Diet Doc provides medically supervised patient care to people across the USA. We provide a collaborative approach to dieting, which is more labor intensive, but also more effective. We work with a team of physicians who are passionate about reducing obesity which is often the cause for many diseases and illnesses."
To further minimize the risk of complication, every one of our patients must undergo a complete physical and other rigorous examinations to determine whether or not the hCG diet is for them.
Our patients receive a doctor monitored, clinically superior hCG diet designed for fast weight loss and specifically tailored to fight obesity, not seizures!
An in-house survey recently conducted by Diet Doc revealed that 97% of patients on the hCG diet experienced fast weight loss, on average of a pound per day, without harmful side effects.
This can be attributed to our penchant for perfection and our desire to provide the best weight loss available.
Our sophisticated doctor designed and physician managed weight loss plan also involves prescribing weight loss medication that has little to no side effects along with fast weight loss products like weight loss shakes and oils, going above and beyond a simple consultation and prescription.
