Fish Oil's effects on BGLs


Recently started taking 1 Fish Oil softgel daily and seems like BGLs have become more stable. But Dexcom curve shows these unusual (for me) brief blips before returning to a more steady trend. Anyone have a good explanation? I understand this may be a sensor issue, but have experienced similar results with 2 sensors now.

@Bob10 I’m using a G5 and see similar off-trend readings.

There doesn’t seem to be any cause / effect to my aberrant readings (i.e. too much fat or fat/protein combination). In fact as often as not they occur all hours of the day, often when I haven’t eaten for 24 hrs.

I’ve written them off as a glitch or failure in the Dexcom smoothing algorithm
