Avatar f tn I am not aware that it has any addictive qualities. Eating too much tuna may expose you to too much mercury however.
Avatar f tn I know you aren't supposed to have too much fish, but all I have been craving is tuna or fish sticks. I have been trying to limit how much I eat per week. Is this normal or what?
Avatar f tn You shouldn't eat it every day because it unknown how much mercury is in it. But tuna doesn't have enough in it to be bad with only eating it sometimes.
Avatar f tn Maybe 3 times a week max.
Avatar f tn Beans, for example, are great for hypoglycemia, and all proteins are as much protein as tuna. Eating just one food isn't healthy, eating too much dairy -- the cheese -- probably isn't healthy. And tuna is full of mercury, whatever your doc says. Perhaps a visit to a holistic nutritionist would serve you better than a doctor, who knows nothing about nutrition, and if you get a good work-up your doc should know whether or not you have hypoglycemia.
Avatar f tn Consumer Reports says that canned tuna, the most commonly consumed fish in the U.S., has levels of mercury too dangerous for pregnant women and their developing fetuses.

1567499 tn?1295409031 Is too much tuna juice bad for a cat? If so how much is too much? History: My overweight cat is in recovery for liver failure from eating a day lily approx 3 weeks ago. he is still fairly jaundice and is not eating on his own but he is definitely getting stronger and better at fighting off the syringe lol). Some of the pink has returned to his nose and green to his eyes. We love him so much and tuna juice is the only thing that he has eaten on his own.
Avatar m tn I have discomfort which they all attribute to muscle pain. Starting to get minor HE. Don't sleep much, but not too tired--almost feels like I have adrenaline going all the time, or hyperthyroid issues. Short of breath when I stand and walk, which is abnormal since I am an athelete. This has been going on a few weeks now. So I'm on my own right now. I feel pretty hopeless. It seems that many people never make it to new liver status, particularly if their kidneys still work.
Avatar f tn You just have to make sure you're not eating too much. My doc told me I can have one small can a week. So I eat a little one day and save the rest for the next day.

Avatar f tn The risk of mercury comes from eating too much fish too often, not from having it 1-2 times a week. When in doubt, call your Dr.

Avatar f tn It's not too much medication, but have you been tested for acid reflux? Have you had an upper endoscopy and been checked for H. pylori?
6726276 tn?1421130268 I heard cats aren't supposed to have too much tuna. I'd like to supplement her dry kibble,hunted kills, with some tuna. I've never purchased wet canned food. When I foster groups of kittens & moms, I make a special wet food from a mix the stores sell here,in Costa Rica, for Menudo Soup. Plus dry kibble. Plus lots of available water. Thank you.
Avatar n tn we advise people not to eat tuna... there are studies that link children with autism with women that are tuna... I know, everything in moderation.... 1 tuna sandwich will not hurt you, but some fish contain high amounts of I wouldn't take that chance,,,, just my opinion....Snacks... cheese sticks, crackers, apple sauce, granola bars, celery with peanut butter, carrots and dip, apples, Are you on the road??? and don't have access to a microwave???
Avatar f tn Tuna mercury levels can be different based on the type of tuna and where it was caught. The NRDC created the chart below as a guideline to how much tuna can be eaten by children, pregnant women or women wanting to conceive, based on their weight.
Avatar f tn To maximize the chew factor, choose food in its most whole stateā€”a tuna steak instead of canned tuna, apples instead of applesauce. Hearty Foods (fruits, vegetables, brown rice, whole grains and cereals) In addition to being chewy, these Active Calories are packed with fiber, take up more room in your belly (compared with other foods of the same number of calories), and leave less room for second helpings.
Avatar n tn I too have suffered in the last 5 years from too much mucous in the throat. I am doing a good deal of research and I am now trying a holistic approach - Apple Cider Vinegar (must be unpasturized/raw/unfiltered/). The dosage is 2 tsp. before each meal or diluted with water and drank during the meal (you'd have to love vinegar to drink it during your meal - o-o-o-o-o no, not me). Anyway, I am giving it a try and will keep you all posted on how this works.
Avatar f tn If you recognize that eating a little too much healthy food continues to build up your fat reserves without limit, then yes it is bad. There's needs to be balance, and an awareness of when you've been eating too much (if only through your belt and pants feeling tighter), so that you know you must cut back.

Avatar m tn My son is 10, and he won't let me add too much to his lunch or snacks that he deems too sugary or just empty calories. He takes it seriously because the kids at school are not shy about pointing out others who they think are fat, and he doesn't want to be on the receiving end of that. As any of us could agree, what our peers think of how we look is often a pretty important reason we try to look certain ways. Let your son be his own guide regarding this.
