Can a boy who age 19 years and his height is 175 cm and his weight is 64 kg take omega 3 to increase his appetite ? if yes what's the suitable dose?

Omega 3s will not: increase appetite and may actually give a false feeling of satiety and work against that goal, much as I like omega 3s. Please see your doc. Perhaps there is a thyroid, GI issue, or other imbalance. Peace and good health.
