Some women are turning to syringes and a low-calorie diet in hopes of losing weight.
For $1,000/month some women are purchasing hGC, a pregnancy hormone derived from the urine of pregnant women, and injecting themselves with it daily. In addition to the hormone injections, these women are limiting their caloric intake to 500 calories per day in order to shed pounds. But some doctors say the weight-loss method is ineffective and even dangerous.
Dr. Louis Aronne is the Director of The Comprehensive Weight Control Program at NY Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center and talks to American Morning's Kiran Chetry about the controversial weight-loss method.
