So I think I may start a weekly or monthly kinda little thing where I post about something I've found superbly useful, whether it's a book, a gadget, app, website or method that helps me with my diabetes.

Up this time…FISH OIL! We're all supposed to take it as a great miracle supplement right? Yep…who who here hates FISH OIL BURPS? ::JUMPS ON DESK RAISES HAND AND SCREAMS MEEEEEEEEE!::

I can't stand those…and the enteric coated don't do much but *delay* them. I've tried freezing the pills too…yick…But I know the omega 3s are amazing for you and I really should get it down…so what's a diabetic to do?

Well I was sick a few weeks back and I headed to GNC to pick up some of the Pearls acidophilus and the chewable tablets as well. I happened to see some samples of Fish Oil Fruit Chews. Took one of the sugar free ones and it was fine! Have 1-3 a day and you've got your daily amount right there, no bad taste!

**Please be advised I don't work for GNC :P**

I go off and on Fish Oil just for that reason…did just buy a jar , because they were on guess I'm on them again…trying to talk my husband into taking them again… But may try the chews fron GNC…how's the taste…really not too bad?
But I love this idea…of hearing about products, books, sites that you think may be of interest to other diabetics. I'll look for your post.

I hate fish burps! My dietician told me if I really manage to eat 3 ounces of oily fish three times every week I probably don't have to take the fish oil pills, and I asked my doctor and he agreed. So I try very hard to eat my three servings of fish during the week. Most of the time I am successful with that. Tonight my son and I had tuna steak, cooked briefly on a grill pan, served with a homemade cole slaw and canteloupe. Oh wait, that goes on a different discussion thread… Thanks for the tip about the chewables, my calcium chewables are my substitute for candy.

I am in the desk next to you and I am waving my hand in the air! LOL

Eeeeww, fish burps. I found that the krill oil that is now out has no burp after and the pill is smaller and I only have to take one a day. It all works for me!
