Definitely talk to your doctor, but I take Lovaza, which is prescript
ion fish oil. I also take evening primrose oil, Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin D because my body was deficient in those two vitamins. I also take a strong multivitamin daily.
I have been on a healthy eating diet since shortly after I was diagnosed and it's made a world of difference for me. I eliminated all gluten products, sugar, caffeine, and processed foods. I only eat "real" whole food. Each meal I have 3.5 oz of good quality protein (I had to experiment and keep a log of which proteins made me feel best, and for me they were fish, eggs, beef, and pork). I also eat 3 servings of vegetables (10-11oz) at each meal, along with 1-2 tablespoons of healthy fat (real butter, not margarine; canola oil; or olive oil). I have two glasses of whole milk a day, and usually I end up eating more fruit than I should, but it's better than eating junk food! I have felt fantastic for most of the 18 months I've been doing this, and lost 80 pounds. I used to have terrible acid reflux, out of control asthma, and I had insulin resistance. Those are gone, and except for the recent flare which was my own fault, I'm doing great!
