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

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 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 more

Can't say: A viable pregnancy is determined by the presence of fetal heart motion, so it is certainly not viable at this time. The poorly rising levels in the last few numbers do not bode well for the chances. ...Read more

I take a multivitamin,12.5mg of atenolol,and omega 3 fish oil. I'm out of balance all day long.Not like vertigo just out of balance. Any idea why?

Off balance: You probably are suffering from BPPV (benign positional postural vertigo). This will usually occur with changes in position or even turning around in your bed it will last 30 sec then stop. It is made better by focusing on an object on the wall or an object fixed in space . You should see the local ent in the area and they can perform the maneuver to get rid of the problem. Good luck ! ...Read more

A1c: If Dad is not taking any insulin he is doing just fine. On the assumption that he is not taking and medicine for diabetes he is OK. If he is on medication for diabetes he should slow down his meds by 50%. PS: If anything, Dad is not a "diabetic". That is a silly term. In type 2 diabetes the theme is "I have diabetes" and the end result is "I am going to beat it!" ...Read more

My HDL is 24, trig 97, total 135 i'm a 38yo male in "good health" BP 110/60ish. Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?

My HDL is 24, trig 97, total 135 i'm a 38yo male in "good health" BP 110/60ish.

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
