Gastric Balloon for weight loss, warning!

Since 2016, 7 deaths have been reported involving the use of this weight loss device

Of the 7 deaths 4 involved the Orbera Intragastric Balloon System from Apollo Endo Surgery and one involved the ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon System by ReShape Medical.

The FDA reported that they could not tell if death in these cases was due to meaning they couldn't tell if death was due to gastric or esophageal perforation, or to intestinal obstruction, or to some other cause. The FDA is working with the companies manufacturing the devices to better understand what is causing the issues and to also monitor potential complications of acute pancreatitis and spontaneous over inflation.

Before risking not only a myriad of dangerous side effects and/or death, check out the HCG diet.

With the use of natural human chorionic gonadotropin you can shed the pounds safely and effectively!

Our HCG program is MD supervised in NYS. Our HCG is formulated by an FDA approved pharmacy. It is the real deal and not fake counterfeits advertised on the net.

The HCG diet will not only change the appearance of your body, but it could also aid in the elimination of joint pain, give you more energy and enhance blood glucose levels and lipid profiles. HCG diet is anti-cancer, reverses cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes and reduces systemic inflammation.
