Fish Oil Doesn’t Cut Diabetes Patients’ Heart Risk Supplements Did Not Improve Heart Health in Large Study

Fish Oil May Not Reduce Heart Risks In People With Diabetes Or Prediabetes.

WebMD Share to FacebookShare to Twitter (7/26, Boyles) reports, “If you have diabetes or prediabetes, fish oil supplements might not be so helpful after all in cutting heart disease risk,” according to research published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Investigators in the study found that “people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes who took omega-3 fatty acid supplements were no less likely to die or suffer a heart attack or stroke than patients who did not take the supplements.” The researchers did find that those “who took omega-3s had a reduction in triglyceride levels over six years of follow-up.”
