Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis and fish oil


Avatar n tn I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily. Despite this the symptoms have now spread to my right hip, right shoulder and slight symptoms in my right knee. I get some relief from taking 400mg of Ibuprofen at night so I can sleep. Is there anything else I can do to try to halt the progression of the disease? Or are there any better meds I can take. I am 54yrs old,female and not over weight and physically active.
1459410 tn?1285698605 It is tough dealing with chronic pain. Are you taking Naturemade brand of Sam-E and flaxseed oil capsules or enteric coated fish oil capsules? Are you exercising your hands in hot water to help with the keeping limber? Yes, it is sad you are not as active for your younger kids, but sore joints can not prevent you from giving them a gift of greater value- your love.

Avatar f tn To make the full range of these omega-3s, the body needs ALA from flax oil (or walnuts or other sources) in addition to EPA and DHA. Thus, one needs to consume some ALA even if fish and/or fish oil are plentiful in one’s diet. Since one needs ALA anyway, and the body can make all the other omega-3s it needs from ALA, does that mean flax seed oil is a better source than fish oil for one’s omega-3s? Not necessarily.

Avatar n tn The supplements I am referring to are glucosamine, chrondotin and msn for the relief of pain also an addition of fish oil will definately benefit you - especially if you also suffer from inflammation with your osteo.
Avatar m tn It seems that Krill Oil is helping everyone's spots and acne, on every website I go to look up about Krill Oil there's ether a comment or an article that's talks about helping spot and acne. Apparently its 48 times better than fish oil and the capsule is less that half the size, I'm going to try Krill Oil Tablets and tell you guys my results!
Avatar f tn I always detail my needs, sometimes in writing and they see if they make sense and see what they can do and help as best as medical science can. If you physically need a medication they should prescribe it.
Avatar f tn I have had fibromyalgia since a near fatal car accident 10 years ago. I am currently on Celexa and Methadone, and I have gained about 35 lbs. and I can't figure out how to stop it or why it is happening. My pain management doctor is a neurologist, and he just says it is a combination of the meds, menopause,not being as active, but he is not a diet doctor and his main concern is my pain. Is there another combination of meds that doesn't do this?
Avatar f tn I use glucosamine, chondroitin, cod liver oil and ensure my diet contains oily fish. TENS doesn't work, heat does work to a degree and so I try to utilise this as much as possible, hydrotherapy is beneficial (but not to the bank balance!) and I also use swimming as a method of controlling pain (though I do suffer afterwards). So if anyone has any bright ideas be the natural remedies or prescribed then please let me know!

Avatar n tn They lowered my ldl to 109 after 3 months, and I am going to be tested again. That and fish oil (1 tbsp although 1 tsp is the recommend dose) brought my cardio crp down to 1 from 3. My cardiologist wants my ldl down to 70 and my crp below 1 due to renal artery stenosis (over 80% in my left renal) and a 30% blockage in my carotid.

Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.

Avatar f tn To the rest of you, I'll definitely try the glucosamine and fish oil. How much should I give her? I've heard of people poking a whole in the fish oil and pouring it over the dog food. Is that how you all give it to your pet? I slip meds into a 1" section of a hotdog to "disguise" it from Sasha, my dog. Which way would be the best? Thank you all again and best of luck to your pets!

1550149 tn?1340004330 OJA Castor Oil Packs Castor Oil has been used for centuries because of its fast acting ability to reduce pain and inflammation. The ability to create castor oil packs (or more properly referred to as compresses) makes it easy to focus on pain inflicted areas, such as the lower back, abdomen, neck, shoulder, knee and wrists. It’s especially great for those who suffer from Carpel Tunnel Syndorme. OJA manufactures varying sizes of compresses to suit the area you would like to focus on.

Avatar m tn Curcumin is best absorbed when dissolved in an oil. I would recommend either extra virgin olive oil or fish oil. Fish oil has a significant anti-inflammatory effect all its own, so I recommend over olive oil. The dose is 250 mg. of curcumin powder mixed with a half-tablespoon of fish oil. Mix well. Take this three times a day with meals. Quercetin This is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Avatar n tn I've seen suggestions for fish oil, daily exercise, chiropractic adjustment, hip replacement, blood diseases, fibromyalgia, and more. It doesn't appear that the condition is understood by the medical profession yet. Anyone come up with a reliable course of action?
Avatar f tn Barry Sears further recommends that people with diabetes, osteoarthritis, and heart disease take twice that amount of fish oil. He also recommends that people with cancer take four times that amount. However, people with congestive heart failure should not be taking large quantities of fish oil.  While cod liver oil is a potent source of EPA/DHA, containing as much as 1000-1200 mg in one tablespoon, it is also a concentrated source of vitamins A and D.

144210 tn?1273092382 Do I have to say that you may be too supplement focused :) The liver has no pain sensors, so any URQ pain is most probably referred pain from the surrounding membranes -- assuming it's something in your digestive tract or referred from some place even farther away (like the neck) through nerve endings. These membranes can swell and shrink (both can cause pain) either due to inflammation or healing, so the pain may not necessarily be bad.

Avatar f tn eating more fish and vegetables, olive oil etc. less starches and so on. Your all seem very knowledgeable in what your saying...but I personally think it may be more of a "fad" diet. Please understand...I'm not trying to insult anyone, but it seems that in general....we tend to grab onto the newest trend or book instead of something more tried and true.
