Know Why Omega-3 Is Harmful For Type 2 Diabetics!

People with type 2 diabetes should not be encouraged to take omega-2 fish supplements. In fact, there are some possibilities that omega-3 may prove to be harmful for people undergoing this condition. 

According to the researchers of the University of East Anglia, people suffering from type-2 diabetes should not be encouraged to take omega-2 fish supplements. There are some possibilities that omega-3 may prove to be harmful to people undergoing this condition. But even after reviewing more than 80 studies, there is no strong evidence of this of any benefit from it.

According to the study, 90 percent of people are suffering from type-2 diabetes. Type-2 diabetes generally means when the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin or the body's cells fail to respond to insulin.

According to the study, this risk of being overweight or obese increases the likelihood of type-2 diabetes. 

Chief researcher Dr. Lee Hopper says that there is a possibility that omega-3 supplements may prove harmful to people suffering from type-2 diabetes because its consumption makes glucose control quite difficult.

"Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for our overall health," he said, adding that it is generally better for people with type 2 diabetes to get at least two portions of oily fish rather than consuming supplements.''
