Allergic Reaction To Fish Oil Capsules
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

I'm allergic to all seafoods my eyes itch and it becomes hard to breathe but I want to try shrimp so bad and take the fish oil vitamins what can I do?
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
Whenever I take Omega 3 fish oil vitamins, my scalp gets sores like big bumps that hurt. Why? Am I allergic?
I don't think I am allergic to fish, but when consuming fish oil with 1000mg omega-3, I have itchiness mostly on foot. What's wrong?
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
May increase LDL:
Prescription fish oil (lovaza) is indicated for treatment of high triglyceride, but in doing so it actually raises the LDL a bit. Taking it as a supplement (smaller dose--1/4 of dose) may not do much at all in term of changing the lipid profile.
So, if u need to lower ldl, fish oil is not the way to go. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Do you need it?:
Fish oil comes in many preparations over the counter and a stronger one by prescription.
It may help the heart by improving lipid profile but mainly for high triglycerides. Is a decent supplement although recent studies are questioning efficacy. I would advise you to discuss it with your MD to assess if it is worth taking it (and/or ANY supplements) at age 33. ...Read more
OK: Fish oil capsules are ok in the setting of kidney disease. There is data in IgA nephropathy that fish lil slows the loss of kidney function. For other diseases the data is lacking. Mercury poisoning potentially could occur if more than recommended doses are used. I would recommend a large commercial brand since quality control has plagued fish oil formulations for years. ...Read more
Not at all: This is totally safe, a bit like having pumpkin pie after eating fish. While both fish oil and pumpkin seed oil are good sources of omega 3 fatty acids, pumpkin seed oil contains omega 6 and other fatty acids not found in fish oil, so taking them together would give you a better balance of fatty acids. ...Read more
What could be the reason behind getting headaches from fish oil capsules? I have narrowed this down and it is definitely when I take these capsules
Do fish oil capsules truly make you have more reflux (if yes, why?), or does it just seem that way because burps are fishy after you take fish oil.
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
Which parts of the fish are squeezed to get oil for fish oil capsules, and what is the fish used for after it's been pressed?
The whole fish: The whole fish is used through a complicated process that separates the water/fat from the solids. The fat is then separated from the water. The remainder of the fish is used as "fish meal" in a variety of ways from fertilizer to animal feed. Go to http://www. Fao. Org/docrep/003/x6899e/x6899e04.Htm for a full explanation. ...Read more
