    There are a lot of sites promoting omega-3 fish oil for Lupus. All that I can say is that there have been no clinical studies approved by the FDA with reference to omega-3 fish oil and Lupus. So its use is purely a personal decision. Best Of Luck

    I've read that Omega 3 helps with inflammation - I was even thinking about asking my rheumy if Omega 3 pills would help any.

    Just to add, Kashi granola bars have Omega 3 in them, and they are very good, especially the honey almond.

    Those Kashi bars are great and I didn't even know about the Omega 3.

    I may have to pick some of those up and try them! I think I am going to ask my doctor if Omega 3 will help me too

    I've been taking omeg 3 fish oil and glucosamine tablets for over two years now....frankly I'm not sure if it's helping or not.

    My 12 yr old dog is also taking both :lol: and he swears by them.

    Soon as he hears them rattle in the bottle he comes running. I don't have to hide them in anything. He eats them right out of my hand. I have to be careful which glucosamine tablets I get. Some contain sulfate and that's a big no no for me.

    I need the ones with hydrochloride. The glucosamine helps to build up the protective tissue in your joints.

    I was going to stop taking them. But after seeing how well my dog reacted to them I decided to stick with it.

    Sounds silly, I know, but if I stop taking them maybe I'd find out the hard way how much they really are helping.
