Allergic Reaction To Fish Oil
Which type of vitamins should I take for my age, women's one a day? Allergic to seafood, will vitamins with fish oil have cause an allergic reaction?
Fish oils contain two active omega-3 fatty acids, dha and epa. Most fish oil products contain both dha and epa, but supplements enriched in dha or epa are available. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to significantly reduce sudden cardiac death. Some studies also indicate the potential for benefits in dementia and risk of heart attack. The omega-3 content of cold water ...Read more
Probably not: Oils are fats that don't usually cause allergic reactions (most allergies are directed against proteins). Manufacturers of fish oil supplements recommend that fish-allergic people avoid their product because they can't guarantee the absence of fish protein in their pills. One small study skin tested fish-allergic patients to fish oil and gave them supplements orally; none had an allergic response. ...Read more
These are the things I am taking, korean red ginseng, multivitamen, fish oil, vitamen c, vegetable protein and loratadine tablets (for allergies). Are these alright together?
There are no adverse interactions between these things. Make sure you take a high-quality multivit. At least 1/3 of adults can't convert Folic Acid to the active form, l-5-mthf ; anxiety/high BP makes it likely you need a multivit that has the l-5-mthf form.
Also most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3 in fall ; winter months to achieve optimal levels- see http://bit. Ly/1ekkvkv ; http://bit. Ly/1dc7vna. ...Read more

Don't do it!!: It's not worth risking your life (and yes, your reaction could close off your airway!) to eat seafood or take fish oil. Please avoid all seafood and seafood products. Your doctor can suggest other ways to get the nutrients you need without risking a life-threatening reaction. ...Read more
I am allergic to iodine, shrimp, lobster, seaweed, but can eat crab, fish clams, octopus. I would like to start taking fish oil for depression. Can I?
Allergy testing: It is unusual to be able to eat crabs and seafood with such a strong history of iodine and multiple seafood allergies. I would not recommend fish oil at this time. If you are depressed, there are medications and counseling that can help - see your Doctor. If you have not been evaluated for specific food allergies, seeing an Allergist for testing is advised. ...Read more

I think I'm allergic to theratears supplement (fish oil and omega-3) it says swelling if the eyelid is a side effect and that's what happend to me!?
Possible: If you notice swelling within a couple of hours after taking the supplements, then you are likely allergic especially if you are allergic to fish. If you are allergic to all capsules, then one need to suspect a gelatin (used in the capsule) allergy. Since fish oil is not essential, you may skip it or try krill oil. ...Read more
I've been taking fish oil for about 6 mos 3 to 4g daily and tappered off now n then. Recently i''ve seen oil in my urine n it smells like fiish oil?
Fish Oil: It certainly could be trace amounts of omega -3 in the urine. It doesn't take much to smell "fishy". The benefits of taking fish oil are less clear than they used to be. I would recommend that you check with your doctor to see if fish oil is right for you. If it is right, I would purchase the highest grade, highly purified brand that is either of Icelandic or Norwegian origin. ...Read more
It depends: On why you are taking/using fish oil. If you have very high triglycerides (>1000), then you may need to take this for the rest of your life or at least until you can undertake interventions that will keep the levels tolerable without fish oil. If you are taking it as a well-being supplement, then it is up to you. ...Read more
Fish Oil: Fish oil supplies essential omega-3 fats that our bodies cannot make on their own. Among their many effects, they can lower triglycerides, prevent heart disease, help reduce high blood pressure, and reduce inflammation in the body. Fish oil helps ward off depression too. In general, most people need at least 1-2 grams of epa and 500mg dha per day in a fish oil preparation. ...Read more
