This Fuzzy Word
The word is “HCG”. If you are wondering about what HCG and HCG injections the same as I do, this is the article for you. In here, all of those important notes to be learned are to be discussed in detail.
What is HCG?
The HCG or the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a glycoprotein hormone which is produced during pregnancy. The developing embryo makes this after its conception and then later by the syncytiotrophoblast which is a part of the placenta. In some cases, some tumors also make this type of hormone and the only way to know is if the patient is not pregnant and has high levels of it. If they have those, it can be basis for a cancer diagnosis. There is no proof though or a recent research result that would prove whether or not this is made by the contributing cause or even an effect of tumorigenesis. Since the start of the mid – 20th century, HCG is endorsed even now as a supplement to help in weight loss.
The Function of HCG
The HCG will interact with the Luteinizing Hormone Chorionic Gonadotropin Receptor or LHCG receptor for short and then does the maintenance of the corpus luteum during the start of the pregnancy. It then causes to give out the hormone called progesterone. It will then enrich the uterus with a thick lining of capillaries and blood vessels so that it would sustain the growing fetus but because of the highly – negative charge it emits, the HCG may repel the immune cells of the mom, protecting the fetus in the first trimester. It is theorized that the severity of morning sickness may be linked with HCG in pregnant women. It is somewhat similar to LH and because of that HCG can also be used clinically to make ovulation in the ovaries as well as testosterone production in the testes. There are some organizations that collect the urine from pregnant females to get the HCG because these women are the most abundant biological source for the hormone.
I have an idea (light bulb). Since they are always talking about it in my gallery, why not create an HCG-inspired work of art… not a bad idea!
