Fish Oil Urine Smell
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.

If it is right, I would purchase the highest grade, highly purified brand that is either of Icelandic or Norwegian origin. ...Read more

Protein intake may be modified depending upon your condition but this is not generally required. You should not change your protein intake without discussing with your doc. ...Read more

Help, son 15 months old, opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested, mouth smells fish, don't think mercury free?
Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either.
