Your Hcg level is elevated due to molar pregnancy. It has no relation with foods and no any food will decrease it's level. You can undergone treatment for molar pregnancy by dilatation and curettage procedure. Gradually the level will fall down with treatment. I suggest you consult gynecologist for pelvic examination and management.

Hope I have answered your query.

Hi, I really need your suggestion in this. I will write all my BHCG test results. The doctor who confirmed me Pregnant says that my levels are not doubling properly. I am very tensed as I have concieved after 4 years and I dont want anything to happen. She has written that I do a Sonography which will clear out everything. But my next appointment is only on 21st Feb. Do you suggest I go to her before that. Please let me know your suggestion and advice.I would also like to tell you that for the past two weeks I had severe cough and fever .Is it because of this sickness my HCG is not doubling or something else. My results are as below: LMP: 24/12/10. On cyclogest, Ovunal BHCG on 24/01/11: 263.4 27/01/11: 970.6 31/01/11: 2688 04/02/11: 4580. 08/02/11: 9209.8 I will highly appreciate your earliest reply.
