  • Omega 3

    Just wanted input on omega 3 and Vits. I have not taken my daily Vit and Omega 3 for 2 months.

    Omega 3

    All I know is that Omega 3 is supposed to be good for inflammation in the body which is most likely present in those of us with IC. I know my CRP (measurement of inflammation in the body) was very high when tested 1-1/2 years ago most likely because I have IC and fibromyalgia. If you eat eggs I guess Egglands are good in Omega 3. I think fish oil supplements are also probably good for this.

      For IC I use Elmiron, Elavil and Freeze dried Aloe Vera (it works likes Elmiron, but naturally)and Azo as needed. I also take Zegerid, Randitine for Barrett's Esophagus. (which causes me to have constant yeast infections!)I take Cymbalta for Neuopathy/Myopathy pain. I use the Climara patch for menopause symptoms. I'm on a very strict diet because of the IC, IBS and Gastric Bypass. I take Primal Defense Probiotics and whole food Iron.
      I no longer have the awful urethral pain! I've been using MSM gel now for 4 mo. and haven't had a flare up or the urethra's amazing stuff!!:woohoo:

        I put 2 heaping teaspoons of grounded flax seed in w/ my Metamucil 2x's per day. I also add some wheat bran. I add all of this to some pear juice mixed w/ water. I personally like the taste, but I add the flax and bran for the health benefits!

          I have oatmeal pretty much every day with milled flax seed (Hogdson Mills brand). I haven't had any problems with that. I love the taste! I like it more than plain oatmeal!
