IAPAM's hCG Training Agrees with the Dr. Oz Show: Physician Supervision is Key This week, the Dr. Oz Show showcased hCG for weight loss. The IAPAM agrees with the Dr. Oz show, that an hCG diet should not be undertaken unless under a doctor's supervision, and one should never buy hCG. hCG is only available by prescription from a physician. Las Vegas, NV, February 25, 2011 -- The IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) has trained over 240 physicians on how to safely and effectively offer hCG to their patients, and well over 5,000 patients have successfully lost weight on hCG using the IAPAM's Exclusive hCG Protocol (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training). The IAPAM is the leader in training physicians in the successful delivery of a medically supervised hCG weight loss program. Proponents of hCG for weight management agree that the ultimate success of hCG in weight loss is linked to medical supervision and strict adherence to the medical protocol, originally outlined by Dr. Simeons in his manuscript, Pounds and Inches, (http://www.iapam.com/drsimeons-pounds-and-inches-manuscript.html). It is the responsibility of health care professionals to: supervise, advise, guide and control their patients health - before, during and after treatment. The physician should establish which patients are good candidates for treatment with hCG, and together with these patients, set realistic expectations that allow for a successful outcome. Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, and a member of the expert faculty of instructors at the IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Training, is hearing from IAPAM members that, "medically supervised hCG weight loss programs are in tremendous demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in the demand for the IAPAM's training program for physicians." However, Russell notes that, "the rate of success for hCG patients that are not supervised during treatment, is considerably lower than those who are supervised by a physician who adheres strictly to the protocol." Mr. Russell also emphasizes that, "through education, like the Physician hCG Training offered by the IAPAM, doctors can appreciate the effects of medications, the implications of plateauing, the importance of vitamin supplements, and understand all the other nuances in the protocol that result in patient satisfaction."
