Allergic to krill oil

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic to krill oil


Avatar m tn 2) If I am allergic to krill oil does this automatically mean I am allergic to fish oil? 3) I have a bad cholesterol ration of HDL (44) to LDL (117) despite being very fit and exercising often. Obviously poor diet habits are causing this but I wonder if Krill Oil is linked is some way amplifying the problem? To be honest I have had a general feeling of unwellness for some years including low energy, depression/anxiety/ melancholy, poor immune system.
Avatar f tn Some people are allergic to only raw shellfish and then some are allergic to both cooked and raw. Since you have no insurance to go to a Allergist to find out which you are allergic too, suggest you do not consume shellfish raw or cooked, and do not take fish oil supplements either. If you want omega3 fatty acid supplementation, use flax seed oil omega 3 supplementation instead. Once you develop an allergy as an adult, you usually have it for life.
1331115 tn?1401672466 I would like to share some info I have found on the benefits of taking Krill Oil for a natuaral pain reliever. It also has many other health benefits as well. I have been taking it for a couple of weeks now and have found that it actually works similar to NSAIDS without the bad side effects.
Avatar m tn If you're not allergic to krill oil, it is touted to be the superior form of animal based omega three oil. Second, all people should ideally use krill oil or fish oil everyday indefinitely. If you're able to take the krill oil, use that one. I've learned that fish oil can be rancid without one actually knowing this, whereas, krill oil doesn't have this tendency so much.

Avatar f tn Where can you get good info to pick good brands, free of mercury, recommended daily doseages,, enteric capsules vs nonenteric ect. .What aoout krill oil ???How does that rate compared to fish oil. If anyone has this info please post... I am always at loss to find the best product for the least $$$. Thanks.
Avatar m tn So does walnut oil. I am allergic to shell fish so Krill oil would be out of the question. What options do I have as far as Omega 3 now? They are very important for health and I want to take advantage them but the nausea is not fun. I guess I could eat more salmon but worry about the contamination issue.
1920295 tn?1322596894 EPA/DHA (fish or krill oil) 2. Astaxanthin 3. Pycnogenol Look very promising. Pycnogenol has been found to help with Lupus, when used with Plaquenil. Astaxanthin (a caratenoid that gives shrimp and salmon their pink color), has been found to be effective in treating Rheumatoid Arthritis. Its a very powerful antioxidant and a good anti-inflammatory. It should be taken with Fish Oil supplements. Fishoil acts as an anti-inflammatory. The DHA in it can also help with kidney disease.
1666434 tn?1325265950 And, since krill are also a related crustacean, you won't want to supplement with krill oil either, even though it's supposed to be superior to fish oil in the way of animal based omega 3 fatty acids. I don't have a true allergy to crustaceans, yet, but I watch it, since I've had a globus-like reaction the last few times I ate shrimp. Now, I'm scared to eat crustaceans myself. It's more of a food sensitivity, which is why I'm aware of the cross reactions.
Avatar m tn // the grain free dry food you are feeding still has lots of preservatives and chemicals, if you can possibly switch to a grain free canned food...but do the transition slowly so not to cause a GI upset. I will send you a great site, this Vet knows tons abt cat nutrition. On the right hand side of her article you can click on several links... -transitioning dry food addicts to canned food also -commercial cat food.
Avatar m tn com) recommends krill oil and says it's better than fish oil. If you're allergic to crustaceans, though, don't use krill oil. These are good to take whether or not you have a cholesterol issue. Red yeast rice is a natural statin. Dr. Mercola recommends against it, but other natural doctors recommend it. I'm sensitive to medications, but I haven't noticed any ill effects from the red yeast rice. You can buy it inexpensively at
948349 tn?1294383837 He likes Krill oil better and maybe you will to, but his website is profound when it comes to natural new and advise. I've studied him and his advise for about 7 years now and don't really have any disbuits with his advise on most cases. Our food industry is so wack, our bodies are craving nutrients we are not getting from our food source it's a sad thing. We are practically starving our bodies to dell while we stuff our face with dead food that have no nutritional value.
1521781 tn?1310517372 I dont eat tons of dairy, only have coffeemate with my coffee and no yougurt or cereal or ice cream, i eat wheat toast in the morning as well, but my diet has been the same for over a year with no issues. this has only been the last 3 months. I looked up celiac disease and I don't have any of those symptoms. Thank you though!
Avatar m tn My diet is high in Omega 3 oils and I supplement with Mega Red Omega 3 Krill oil almost every day. I believe there must be some commonality amongst all the orange tongue "victims" that link us together. Perhaps if we work together to focus on finding that cause we can get to the bottom of this mystery and figure out how it can be treated! Consider this A CALL TO ARMS to all the other Orange tongue people out there!
5535868 tn?1369426377 Any chance you are talking cedar trees? Many folks in my family are deathly allergic to cedar----this is in texas----and the older they get the worse it is. I mean even if they visit a house with cedar paneled closets---well---they try not to. What an obstacle course you have been going thru bama......i really don't think i could do it! Blessings----prayers for You from omhome.

In addition there are non-prescription pills for dry eyes available at most major drug stores or by direct order from the companies. Thera-tears formula for dry eyes is probably the most widely used. You can use any search engine to pull up the websites of the companies that see these.
Avatar f tn slowly transition her over to wet GRAIN free food...this you have to do slowly..for her to accept. If possible try to change the source of is she is eating mainly chicken than change it to beef.. NO need for the food to be hypoallergenic like most Vets will tell you...this food is very expensive and most cats hate it just make sure its grain free...from a good pet supply store not walmarts etc. get some Omega 3 fatty acids...
928257 tn?1296677092 Schiff Omega 3 Krill Oil Softgel Lecithin softgel 400mg Super B Complex caplet Aspirin 81mg tab Claritin-D 24 Hr tab Today I added a Women's One a Day to my daily supplements. Am I overdoing anything and/or am I mixing anything I shouldn't be? My energy was about nonexistent and I was experiencing depression until I started taking the supplements. Now I feel much better. (I had blood tests last year, but nothing abnormal showed in the results.
Avatar f tn I will give you a link to and one of their best krill oils that is safe for cats...(no sugar/salt/starch/soy/preservatives....its made by the brand NOW FOODS. this is a very good product for all cats with extreme skin issues....just pierce the capsule and squirt it on their food, one capsule per day. since I opened the UK site and I live in Canada it reads that this product is not avail. in my region.
Avatar m tn do keep on with the limited ingredient diet in canned form, try a novel protien such as venison(if your kitty will eat, not many like) stick to GRAIN FREE It is important you give her a supplement of Omega 3's...IMO Krill Oil is the best to address inhaled allergies....are there carpets in your home? any new scents that you have recently began using since your move? new chemicals...even candles or furniture? new detergent? new household cleaners?
177275 tn?1511758844 This includes high quality enteric coated fish oil or other ocean based Omega 3 such as made from krill or calamari. Omega 3 helps dry skin, dry mouth and dry hair. This also often takes 3-6 months to get maximum benefit and needs to be continued. Important to understand NO IMPROVEMENT MAY OCCUR FOR 4-6 MONTHS. Both Restasis and Omega 3 are normally taken for life. A recent study stating fish oil increased risk of prostate cancer in men is wrong.
Avatar m tn I have put bactine on them, and hydrogen peroxide but I cannot seem to stop the infection. I have been wondering if he is allergic to the grass, or a particular plan in the grass but I don't know. Has anyone seen a problem like this before? Thanks for your help.

Avatar n tn It turned out wbelieve to be a chicken allergy, after starting a chicken less diet they cleared up an haven't returned, that was a few yrs ago he can now eat chicken but I rotate often. Only took a few weeks to clear up. The krill oil omega 3's are the best for cats...but since his diet was fish based an the possibility of a fish allergy, perhaps best to listen to the Vet right now an not try. The plant based ones I,m not sure if cats can tolerate.
Avatar f tn If you give your kids everything they want, never let them experience failure (which is the only way to success) and realize the sun still comes up the next day, and that working hard for something and achieving it despite the obstacles and naysayers is a feeling all the new gadgets in the world isn't going to give them. 3rd try krill oil unless your kids are allergic to seafood. My daughter has sensory integration disorder and she uses it as it coats the nervous system.
Avatar f tn I also take essential fatty acids like flax oil, fish oil, krill oil, as well as zinc, selenium, b-vit. and virgin coconut oil. Multi-vitamins have a good balance, and also exercise. I have started losing weight this way too; the fats will not make you fat. I have more energy and want to workout now. I am not a doctor, but I like to educate myself, and know a lot about these issues. And my dad is an MD as well with lots of info to help me as well.
291885 tn?1404896807 I really hope it's not making me more hypo because the 4-6 weeks I'd have to wait to check my bloodwork could take me 4-6 months to recover from if in fact I've made myself more hypo by swallowing the pills.
4856444 tn?1360106701 The vet thinks he could be allergic to something. We had put a laminate wood floor in the kitchen and he started to scratch after that. I have done a ton of research on this subject and also found that DRYER SHEETS that contain cationic could be harmful. I do use a lot of dryer sheets which now I have totally stopped to see if this is the problem, but if it could be the new flooring I have not a clue how to fix that. I have only used a damp cloth on the flooring no cleaners.
184674 tn?1360864093 * Take a good source of animal based omega-3 fats like krill oil. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils like trans fats found in most processed foods, as it will seriously damage your immune response. * Wash your hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Evening Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to the Conversation. When I came to withdraw from Tramadol, it was very hard to find anyone who was sharing that path. The War was fought alone for awhile. But then, others joined me and now we have the continuing Conversation. This is the place to be to get off and stay off Tramadol. Welcome Warriors!
