OK, now we really need somebody who is in the know to straighten things out because I'm confused. My mother, a retired nurse, told me to take fish oil, and I did. Then my brother-in-law, told me I should research on the web because it's bad for diabetics. I couldn't find anything conclusive. Please, I need to know!

I'm on fish oil and cinnamon and multi vitamins and calcium. My readings, I think, are getting better from them. Check with you doctor or talk with a local Pharmacist. They really know their stuff!!!

I have been taking fish oil supplements for over a year now and it doesn't make my blood sugar hard to control, just the opposite. It also has helped with my cholesterol levels. They have came down alot!! So I am happy with the fish oil.

I have always heard that it was good for your blood sugar, never tried it or read a lot on it but I do remember reading that it was good for diabetics and that we should be eating fish 3 or 4 times a week. I will be interested in seeing what others who have tried or researched it will have to say.

Where did you read it? There is an element of truth to it if you look at studies but when you look at real life, not so much truth to it.

I should add, the studies show a slight increase in fasting blood sugar rather than generally higher levels. However, with some slight tweaks you can overcome any rise due to the fish oil pretty easily.
