my doc said I need to eat fish;1000mg is that one fish?
100mg or 1gm is about the weight of a paper clip so this wouldn't be much fish so it is probably fish oil they are talking about. Your doctor should have been more specific on his/her recommendations. a 3.5 oz serving of cold water fish provides about 1000mg of Omega 3 fatty acids. Why was this recommended? Fish oil is known to lower triglycerides and there is evidence that it helps prevent heart attacks. The evidence for its efficacy for treating other problems like ADHD, dementia, mood disorders, asthma, etc is mixed. Most people don't get enough Omega 3's in their diet so taking it shouldn't hurt even if it doesn't help the condition they take it for though.
actually she told my dad to eat fish i just wrote me lol cause his cholesterol is high..his triglyceride is high as well as his LDL and his HDL is slow so for HDL she said try to exercise and for the triglyceride said to eat fish, any kind..?
1,000mg (~1g) is the usual dosage of fish oil in a capsule or tablet. You could get that from eating real fish, but if you don't like fish, you won't eat it all.
Sounds like the doc is refering to fish oil. You can buy it in capsule form at any pharmacy. He / she wants you you to take 1000mg per day.
She said I don't care what fish smelly as long as its 1000 mg lol
Meant to say 1000mg or 1gm. Lost a zero.
