Sorry for reposting but I didn't get any responses in the 'general' forum..
Over the last two years I've done two rounds of HCG (corion and hucog injections), a long round and a shorter round, loosing 15 the first time and about 25 the second.
I want to start another round and have all my supplies ready, but I recently got a lot of blood work done and the results indicated that my hormones are way off (estrogen dominance), I have a sluggish thyroid and something is causing liver damage. I am really healthy for the most part, I have eaten organic food my whole life, Ive been gluten free for like 10 years, I dont eat processed junk or sugar, nor do I drink or smoke..
I'm overweight cause I have an eating disorder and go through periods of anorexia and then over-eat, so I understand why my thyroid is off, but considering the results of my blood work, do you think its ok to do another round?
I tried to start my third round before christmas but was too busy with school and stressed and gave up after about a week. After that, my weight has sky-rocketed, Im 5'7 and have never weighed more than 150 my whole life, but now I'm 160 at least. After my last round of hcg (which ended in april of 2012) I was about 120 for like 6 months, and then started to gain rapidly. Its crazy, I've seriously put on about 40 pounds in like 4 months, and i feel like im just continuing to gain. My eating is pretty stable these days, I don't eat much carbs and mostly eat veggies, fats and protein. But I can't live with myself weighing 160 for much longer! I really want to do another round and am wondering if you think its safe, or if the HCG is contributing to liver damage or hormonal imbalance... or if doing another round will exacerbate the circumstances?
Also, I am now taking herbs and vitamins to balance my body (all through Life Extension) and if I do another round, I'm planning to continue to use the supplements. Do you think thats a good idea?
Thanks for your help and suggestions!
