Diabetes tends to lower “good” cholesterol levels and raise triglyceride and “bad” cholesterol levels, which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. This common condition is called diabetic dyslipidemia.
Diabetic dyslipidemia means your lipid profile is going in the wrong direction. It’s a deadly combination that puts patients at risk for premature coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis.
A good mix of Omega 3 acids, e.g. Omesam, effectively reduces bad cholesterol. However, the question arises whether you can use drugs for diabetes and Omega 3 together? Researchers in the study said that it can and has a positive effect on health.
Patients with type 2 diabetes with elevated cholesterol may use metformin along with an effective dose of Omega 3 e.g. Omesam to lower cholesterol and protect against vascular and heart disease. Read more about role of Omega-3 in diabetes
Two grams (2 capsules OMESAM) of Omega-3 fatty acids e.g. Omesam were more effective than 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing triglyceride levels in diabetes.
