Fish oils for gout is an attractive idea but you will need to work with a doctor who is familiar with the treatment. Don't attempt to do-it-yourself. For just four reasons:

  • You may have a medical condition which precludes the use of high dose fish oil.  
  • It may thin the blood too much and it may cause a rise in blood glucose levels.
  • It may be contraindicated with a medicine you are already taking. Some examples: warfarin, gingko biloba and low dose aspirin. (Gout sufferers should not take low dose aspirin, because it can cause gout attacks at low doses. In one study (1) that was 325 mg or lower for 2 days.).
  • Cheap fish oils have too many impurities at these levels, so you need to use ultra-refined fish oil.
