On HCG diet. Does it disturb the hormonal levels? Positive pregnancy test

I m 5 weeks into the HCG diet and haven t had a period since Jan 1st - which my doctor warned may happen given HcG plays with hormones.... however I took a pregnancy test just now as I ve been feeling very tired etc, and just felt off - which again I could put down to the diet. The pregnancy test has shown a very strong positive result. Would this be beacuse of the HcG diet? Before going on the diet I asked my GP this and he said that the HcG levels are so low that it wouldn t show up on a preg test?

Thank you for your query.
On HCG diet, you would not be given very strong doses, specially to have a very strongly positive pregnancy test.
However, there is now only one way to confirm
You cannot go for a blood HCG test also, as your HCG diet shots might interfere with that too.
You can visit a gynecologist and go for a transvaginal ultrasound scan, as that would show evidence of pregnancy if you are indeed pregnant.
take care.
