Allergic to krill oil

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic to krill oil


Avatar m tn 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 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.
1331115 tn?1536362140 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 I can't comment on the statin question. There are natural things you can try when you're diet and exercise don't resolve the cholesterol issue. You can take a fish oil supplement. It matters which brand, because some have better testing standards than others. Carlson's and Nordic Naturals are two highly recommended brands that experts taut all the time. Dr. Mercola ( recommends krill oil and says it's better than fish oil.
Avatar m tn At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for krill oil. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
5893179 tn?1400521283 I really hope I can take krill oil. I want to get my health back and get off all these meds.
Avatar m tn I react to caffeine less than I do krill oil. I can, however, take regular fish oil without problems. Everyone's body chemistry is so different that I've decided I just have to listen to my own body and try and figure out what it is trying to tell me.
Avatar f tn I also take the mega red krill oil what does it do for the heart , not sure I just heard it was good been on it for a year, have wondered if I am blowing money or is it good to take
1920295 tn?1322593294 I just spent almost 12 hours in the ER last night due to an allergic reaction to Imuron (i.e. shallowed breath, rash, & violent vomiting). My rheumatologist told me to stop taking it. This is the second medication I've been on with methotrexate being the first. I feel like I'm running out of options to get it under control. Does anyone know what the next step would be?
20449547 tn?1498153448 I have always taken Krill oil to support my diabetes and help bring up my good cholesterol. I am worried that krill oil is not good for my baby and that I should switch to fish oil... but read that cod liver oil is a no-no. Does any one have any insight into what is a good supplement?
Avatar f tn I absolutely assure you it will work, but red krill oil will take 2-3 weeks to fully absorb into your body and work, magnesium should be instant. Get high doses if you choose to get these supp. Another, evening primrose oil tabs from chemist, works exactly the same for arthritis/rls.
1666434 tn?1325262350 I can't answer that last question, but I do know this one for sure: Cross reactions must be taken seriously now. So, no lobster and no crabs either. 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.
476246 tn?1418870914 I don't see why not. I've never heard that fish oil interferes with riba absorption or is otherwise contraindicated. Just make sure you get enough fat, I doubt if a few fish oil pills would be enough if that's all your taking. A chunk of cheese sounds perfect though.
1095404 tn?1333992839 my mom told me today that krill oil is actually better for u than fish oil b/c it doesnt contain as much mercury. so if u could find krill oil w/ dha or take dha w/ it.. i might look for that.
1319721 tn?1276040968 I'm eating 2-3 serving of leafy green vegetable and 1 pill of 500mg of Neptune Krill oil per day. I have a 10,000 IU of vitamin A (the dry one). I understand that it's not good to overdose on vitamin A but I don't know if I will be overdosed if I take the pill. Should I take it or should I leave that bottle of vitamin A alone?
518994 tn?1212242047 There are various vitamin-mineral supplements available that contain this or you could just add a little (~1/2 teaspoon) extra virgin olive oil to your dogs meals. Olive oil is a great source of Omega-3 Fatty acids. The omega-3's are the same for people and pets. If you give too much the result would be a bit of gas and/or loose stool.
Avatar f tn I have found some more info on Krill oil that I would like to share. Among all of the other health benefits you get with Krill oil is it can be used to decrease inflammation like an NSAID read below: A number of studies have shown that krill oil is tremendously effective in reducing LDL-cholesterol, raising HDL-cholesterol (up to 44% in some cases), and lowering blood sugar.
Avatar m tn I've been taking 2 x 1000 mg fish oil every night for about 5 yrs for the cholesterol benefits. I still have episodes with PVCs. Can you be more specific on what you are taking? The name brands and dosages? It seems like alot of people on this site have remedies for PVCs, but I'm not sure if they really work or it's pure coincidence. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I suggest using Source Naturals ArcticPure Krill Oil 500mg. It states to take 2 caps for 30 days then 1 cap per day after that. I recommend taking 2 per day all the time!
714128 tn?1249136386 I don't know for sure, but I think the brand you are taking isn't fish oil, but isn't it krill oil? You might try taking a good fish oil tablet, 2000 grams daily... that's what I take. Your total cholesterol is high, but so is your HDL - the good cholesterol. Have both the LDL and HDL gone up, or just the HDL? If so the MegaRed is doing what it does best, raise the good cholesterol. If I had your cholesterol test, I would mix in a Statin.
Avatar m tn I have been taking fish oil 1200 mg /360 mg omega 3 three times a day is that to much to take in at once for your heart .
