It is really difficult for people with diabetes to lose weight. I know this because I have type two diabetes. Losing weight has been one of the most difficult things I have ever dealt with. The hcg that I have been taking has helped in a way I never expected. I admittedly had high hopes for it, but never really expected it to work, when nothing else really has. It has been a god send, because I thought I would never be able to lose all of this weight. I am down twenty pounds already and pretty much just passed the most difficult mark for people losing weight. I am so excited and happy about this.
