I have had moderate acne for years and had a cystic breakout from cod liver oil. Do you think that would happen from taking vitamin a fish liver oil?

I have had moderate acne for years and had a cystic breakout from cod liver oil. Do you think that would happen from taking vitamin a fish liver oil?

Time to Rx: My concern is not whether an oil sold to you as cod liver made your acne flare, but that you have not been treated for cystic acne. This is the 21st century, and no one should have to suffer from such severe acne, period. An appropriately-aggressive scientific physician might, if appropriate, start a woman on the pill or find the right antibiotic; a dermatologist has big guns. You deserve better. ...Read more

Had surgery 8days ago to remove ovarian cyst  they found blood around ovarie. had 2 blood tests 7days apart both showing raised Liver enzymes why?

Unknown: Many causes of elevated liver enzymes. Could be related to the anesthetic agents used in surgery. Alcohol can do it as well as other drugs. Many people today have fatty liver due to a high carbohydrate diet. It does need to be evaluated, but i would reassure you that it doesn't relate to the surgery itself or the ovary in any direct way. good luck ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

I have tsh(clia)6.32, normal t3, (liothyronine) t4, variable echotexture of liver with hyper and hypoechocic areas, fatty infiltration, right ovarian cyst can you help me?

Get checked soon,,: It would be a good idea to get examined and get some more lab tests like liver function tests to find out more about your issue. Your liver shows changes that may be serious, like cirrhosis, and your thyroid is only normal with a high tsh, and you've got an ovarian cyst. These may be separate issues or part of a syndrome but more information is needed so see your dr. And get checked. Good luck. ...Read more

What is cod liver oil pills do?

What is cod liver oil pills do?

Cod Liver Oil: Cod liver oil contains more vitamin a and vitamin d than any other food. This is pre-formed vitamin a, though -- not the beta carotene you can get from plants. You probably want no more than 2500 iu of preformed vitamin a/day. It is fat soluble and the excess is stored in your liver. Cod liver oil also contains high amounts of dha and epa -- long chain omega-2 fats. ...Read more
