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.
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.
