Different than I expected

Posted by Reviewer2053177 on Sep 01, 2008

I thought this was the Pro, but since it is cheaper I should have know. It is still a good product and I might continue using it just to save some $$.

Not all fish oils are created equal - giving this a try for Type IV hypertriglyceridemia

Posted by 5416591513172591381 on Dec 06, 2016

I got this for my Mum recently who has Type IV familial hypertriglyceridemia - runaway triglycerides, high VLDL, low LDL, low HDL. She had several attacks of pancreatitis in the late 1980s-90s and has been on liver- and kidney-damaging fenofibrates and statins since. Side effects include Diabetes 2 and hypertension. Fifteen months ago, she had a "minor" stroke. Suffice to say, it hasn't been a fun ride. She used to take prescription fish Omacor but I've been wondering about the efficacy of ethyl esters. Research has shown that a 4:1 ratio of EPA to DHA is optimal for hypertriglyceridemia. She's also taking citrus flavones and palm tocotrienols Sytrinol. It's been months of adjusting and fine-tuning of dosages with more frequent cholesterol and liver function tests. The idea is to slowly wean her off her conventional meds or at least take reduced dosages. Hope this rings a few bells for anyone reading this. Be self-empowered to do your own research. Good luck!
