The thing we need to keep in mind when these studies are done is who funded the study (i.e. would they benefit from the results being one way or another). I know that they say the glucosamine and choindroitin don't work for osteo-arthritis but does help me.

I take 4 1200mg gel caps every day and it doesn't have that fishy after taste later.

I also take fish oil capsules for blood pressure and cholesterol and it has seemed to help.

My dr had me taking fish oil capsules to lower my cholesterol - it was great, dropped 30 pts in 3 months or so. Dr today suggested fish oil capsules for arthritis (now have arthritis in my hip, owie!)

But I've never heard of it helping with HIV. Lots of other things - just not HIV.

Interesting! There's still so much we don't know about the body and are learning all the time.

FISH OIL
May 29, 2013

Hello Doctor,

I have read with an article call fish oil is very good for health in improving the immune system and also helps in preventing the type 2 diabetes.Can you please assist me doctor do you suggest that to take the fish oil in which mode (tablet or direct fish).Thanks a lot to you in advance doctor, Nani


Response from Dr. Henry

Though highly promoted (many would say over promoted based on actual data), the proven benefits of fish oil taken as a supplement in the setting of HIV infection are modest at best. Recent studies of fish oil in the general population have generally been unimpressive regarding definite clinical benefit so the jury is out about the role fish oil has protecting health. Immune and diabetes benefits are not well documented. KH
