Omega-3 Fish Oil 1000mg. 3x a day

Can a type 1 diabetic take these pills without affecting her blood sugar readings?

Answer:

Omega 3 Fish oil can alter blood sugar levels, so it is possible that your readings could be affected. There have been studies showing the benefit of taking Omega 3 fish oil in people with Type 1 diabetes but at the moment the evidence is not conclusive. If you don’t do it already, I think it may be worthwhile to include in your diet a source of Omega 3 fish oils from sources such as salmon, or other oily fish, a few times a week. However if you wish to take the supplement form, I would check with your doctor first. Be aware that fish oil can interact with blood thinning medication such as warfarin and aspirin.
