I have a q. How do pradaxa and high dose fish oil cope together. I've been reading up on the Jelenik diet - good book but I have a long way to go. It reiterates the importance of Omega 3 but I heard that fish oil and warfrin don't like each other but it seems lots of precautions are needed with Warfrin - is pradaxa the same.

How was China?
Are you staying in Brooklyn through the storm?
high dose fish oil does inhibit platelet aggregation. This would augment the antiplatelet effect of low dose aspirin, used as part of a strategy of stopping platelets from sticking to the area of the vein where the endothelial layer is stretched open to expose the venous smooth muscle to the platelets. This is a natural defense against bleeding. The degree to which this platelet inhibition is magnified by simultaneous exposure to low dose aspirin and omega 3 fatty acids in high dose is really unknown.
However in the face of coumadin, an increased risk of bleeding may occur. There is insufficient data to talk about pradaxa and omega 3.
For these reasons, i advise that patients delay hgh dose omega 3 ingestion until the anticoagulation therapy is completed. For most of my patients, pradaxa only lasts for one month. Without the anticoagulation, i think that low dose aspirin and omega 3 can be taken simultaneously.
China was great. i met many old friends. I visited the far western provinces toward the north, including xinxiang and gansu. Great opportunity to meet some of the chinese minority populations and to visit the old silk road and the cultures of that time.
Foods were really interesting
duck tongues, webbing, heart, stomach eyelids, kidneys, neck, and muscles
and you ask me about the safety of omega 3 supplements?
you must be crazy!
