I just read this in Gretchen Becker’s book, and am wondering if anyone has experienced this:
“For some time, people have been told that fish oil supplements (not the fish oils you get from eating fish) and niacin would increase BG levels in people with diabetes. More recent studies have reported that there is no significant effect on diabetic control.”
I’ve been taking fish oil supplements for about four months and have noticed my FBG has slowly risen an average of about 8-10 points during that time. I chalked it up to laziness with my diet, but looking back I haven’t actually been all that lazy (yay, me!).
Just wondering if maybe the fish oil might have something to do with it? I’m going to stop the supplements for awhile and see what happens.
What’s your experience?
