Our expert says:
You can certainly take the Omega-3 (salmon oil) because this can help with insulin resistance. Most people who eat a western diet that contains plant oils and margarine get more than enough omega-6, so it is not necessary to take even more. I would recommend that you first consult the doctor who prescribed the Glucophage or ask your pharmacist if you can take an additional blood glucose-lowering product like Manna Blood Sugar Support. The combination may lower your blood sugar levels to such an extent that you start suffering from hypoglycaemia, which is also undesirable. I cannot comment on the milk thistle because I am not a herbalist. As a dietitian, I would urge you to be careful with the detox programme you intend following because this can also cause havoc with your blood sugar levels. Rather take your Glucophage as prescribed together with a low-fat, low-GI diet, and daily exercise for 30 min a day, to lose weight and get your blood sugar and insulin levels under control.
