Plant vs fish omegas: The type of omega 3 fatty acids (including dha) in plants are shorter in fatty acid chain length than the ones in fish. Our bodies use then longer chains much more efficiently, perhaps 6-10 times more efficiently. ...Read more

Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?
What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

Off balance: You probably are suffering from BPPV (benign positional postural vertigo).

I take a multivitamin plus vitamin c, d, all b's with niacin and fish oil, calcium, red yeast rice, should I take the vitamin magnesium with these & why?
I don't like it.: Truth be told, I don't like combining Niacin with the red yeast rice as they can both have toxic effects upon the liver. I hope you're having your liver blood enzyme levels monitored on that combination. Adding Magnesium to all of this is not my concern as I don't see any issue in that as long as your doses of all these other medications are not excessive. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have high cholesterol (genetic, i'm healthy 25yr old), should I be careful of my egg consumption? I'm vegetarian & enjoy the source of protein
I would not worry: Vegetarianism is a moral choice and I'm glad you are allowing yourself eggs -- this is important in keeping you healthy. If your hypercholesterolemia is familial (as mine is), you'll probably be on meds by the time it matters, and in the meantime I'd rather you simply stay fit than try a dietary modificaiton that will probably not matter much and make your life less easy & enjoyable. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I'm 21. Which medication is more proper for ovarian cysts(5-8mm. No free fluid) in both ovaries- homeopathy or allopathy ?
Medical systems: Homeopathy and allopathy are systems of medicine, not medications in themselves. Allopathy means "other suffering" -- and refers to using treatments that cause effects different from those of the disease being treated. Homeopathy = "similar suffering" -- and uses minute quantities of medicines that would produce in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the disease. Please see comment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
