Does The HCG Diet Work and Is It Safe? Posted on March 13, 2014 by Emma Deangela 1 Comment http://drpompa.com Dr. Pompa talks about why the HCG diet works, but the dangers that go along with it. One thought on “Does The HCG Diet Work and Is It Safe?” I did injectible HCG and lost 30 lbs and created a new set point (my college weight) which I’ve remained at. I’ve had many patient do the same and get off of diabetes and BP meds which is great in the long run. Comments are closed.
