Hi,last year I was put on fish oil capsuals by a consultant who said they may help keep lnflamation down in my arturies,I was attending his clinic because after a number of years on statins I was having trouble,no energy,short of breath,dizzy,my doctor tried a few different statins & lower doses but after a couple of weeks back to were I was with them,so he sent me to see this particular consultant.The only reason that I realised it was the statins 40 mg atorvastatin was I ran out of them for a week or so,back on them @ problems again. I am type two diabetic,have a cataract in one eye,brother & sister not diabetic nor do I remember our parents being so.Back to the fish oils,I told him I had been taking cod liver oil tabs for years not these he said,Omagor they certain reduced my attacks of ecoptic heart beats & arrithmia.
I was on these capsuals till I went into hospital with unstable angina & heart consultants stopped them as they thought they had no proven good for heart attack patients.
My own doctor would not prescribe these capsuals without a hospital consultants say so,one consultant starts,one stops.
This was early September 15, by December 10th a date I remember as I had an appointment with a heart consultant,ecoptic heart beats kicked off that day, I cannot remember when I ran out of the Omagor as I had some in hand & got a prescription from my doctor before he got the letter from the hospital.
The attacks got worse &a day after Boxing Day I was standing at the toilet ecoptic heart beat started & I blacked out & went back onto a linen basket,this was all in seconds,good job I was not on the stairs.
I bought some Nordic fish oil off the internet &a about one month later the attacks were reduced,I am not saying complete stoppage but I was not as aware of them.
I went on line &found a research about these fish oils & told the heart consultant about it & the difference in my condition. Last month he put me back on them.
