Q.

Omega 3 & auto-immune/kidneys

My 11 old son had Hennoch-Schonlein Purpura 2 years ago & 50% kidney damage as a result. He also has an consentration problem(without hyperactivity). I want to give him Eye q, but is it safe to give him such a high dose. The directions say 6 capsules for 12 weeks and then wean down.
Also, I was told it is better to use flaxseed oil for auto-immune diseases. I'm confused. Please tell me what is best and how much is safe to give my child.

It seems that the flaxseed option is the best one and should be protective to his kidneys. Speak to your pharmacist regarding the recommended dose.
