I guess the only way you'll know is if your cholesterol goes up taking the added oils like mine did.


Or down  




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

Well I fell at work, and fractured my wrist,  Typing with one hand. I had an EKG done for surgical repair and it was completely normal! All the EKGs I had done before that were abnormal the last few years  . I was taking fish oil with all the abnormal ones over the years. I'll never  take fish oil again!  I even had a stress test because of FO thinking I had heart disease and I didn't!

I first noticed FO was causing problems when I noticed my LDL was really high! Never had that before. That's when I decided to stop taking it, Now with a normal EKG, that proves it was the fish oil.  
I think FO contributes to heart disease.

Thanks Cristina.    It could just be me reacting to FO but I wanted to put it out there for people to pay attention to their risk factors like cholesterol and EKG'S, If they notice a sudden change for worse its most likley something they are taking causing it.   But it took me 5 years to figure it out! Who would suspect FO? Dr. D said let food be your medicine. (not supplements) FO also raised my BP. it dropped back down to normal when I stopped it!

Mayflowers, sorry about your wrist.

From my doctors orders, I was downing fish oil, and then krill oil, for a long time. I've been off them for about a year now, so I'm hoping to see an improvement in my cholesteral levels. My BP and heart rate has much improved since. I certainly feel better without them, and wonder whether the source was contaminated non-compliant fish.

Be aware that if you take anything that is aimed at cleaning the blood it would increase blood pressure. that's not necessarily such a bad thing.

if, for example, you take your blood pressure before taking cayenne capsules and then after you will get a shock, it throws it way high but I then settles down.

did you take the fish oil soon before going to get BP checked. try it after next time see what happens.


I only take Dr D Fish Oil and I find it helpful.

Interesting. While trying to get off BP an CH meds, I'd been taking many FO caps over the course of the day trying to get to the OTC dosage equal to that of prescription strength (Dr.'s recommendation). I feel so much better these days due to high compliance and having jettisoned this sort of well-meaning but bad (conventional) advice from my Dr. that I'm tempted to carefully ramp down my pharmaceutical meds and eliminate them over the next few months. I know he'll fight me on this and frankly, I'm a little nervous about doing it without his blessing.

Thanks   I always wondered if I was getting rancid fish oil. I bought Iceland Health which was expensive, and supposed to be wild caught and pharm grade but companies lie

I've always monitored my BP because it ran low sometimes 90/60 but mostly textbook 110/70.
It only went up when I started FO... I thought it was weight related but it dropped to my norm after stopping FO, Being an A, I think I do better with vegetarian options like just adding flax and chia seeds  to my diet

Lecithin lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. I can't take a lot because my BP gets too low,

I got off the dreaded BP phama junk by taking Hawthorn. I take one in the AM and one at noon. I LOVE Hawthorn. And I hate BP medication! One of the "side effects" of Hawthorn is that it lowers blood pressure! How awful!

My doctor tried to scare me about getting off medication too, but I know too many people who have gotten help using Hawthorn, so I didn't believe a word he said. The BP problem was the only health problem I had so he was trying to hang onto it for dear life! Needless to say, I don't go to him anymore. My new doctor hoots at the idea that I need BP medication.
