Omega-3 tabs without fishy taste?

Can anyone recommend a brand?  Apparently, they are available.....
AC1 - Diagnosed 10/6/10 - 10.8
1/26/11 - 6.8
7/8/11 - 7.5
1/14/12 - 5.6
Next bloodwork 3/12, for LDL only
Triglycerides 134 as of 1/14/12.  Metformin 2 x 850 mg.  Glipizide 1 x 10 mg, twice daily.  The glip I have down-dosed myself.  Also on Metoprolol (2x 100mg), Fenofibrate (taken off 1/14/12)(160mg), Simvistatin (20mg), and Lisonopril/Diurectic combo(20-25mg).  Morning BG's seem to be highest of day in general, but are improving. Very low carb diet.
I don't want to eat just one piece of bread, I want four.
Long Term Goal:  5% club.  Short Term Goal, improve my next Triglyceride number and continue my modest exercise program (exercise not going so well 9/28/11).

I get the Spring Valley Fish Oil brand at Walmart. It has no fishy taste at all.

Fisol is another choice.  I've bought them from Swanson Health Products.

Any fish oil that is Enteric Coated will prevent any fishy taste or "fish burps".

As far as where to purchase, I personally recommend Puritan's Pride
puritan.com

But, then again that's just my personal preference :smileyhappy:

What, you don't like penguin burps?

Find a brand that says it's purified.  There are many on the market.

I am definitely a Fisol fan as well. I usually get 180 at a time. I never looked on Swanson's though for Fisol. Thank you for the heads up.

Omega-3 tabs without fishy taste?

I take fish oil for Triglycerides so you need a high dose of actual Omaga 3's 2500-4000mg. So to minimize # of pills (single strength would be like 9 pills) I take triple strength. For the priceand no aftertaste, the best I have found is Equaline triple strength "900mg Omaga 3, 1400mg pill". They are enteric coated. Its Supervalu's house brand so if your grocery chain is owned by them they should carry it (gray bottle, blue cap) (eg Jewel etc).

They also often go on sale B1G1. If I take with food never get a fish taste.

A few people I know are now taking krill oil. They say the advantages are that there is no aftertaste and it is a much smaller pill that the fish oil horse-size ones.

You can read about it here...  don't forget to click on the file tabs.

I removed the url because it came up with a "free sample site instead of the WebMD blurb about krill oil. Wierd...

Oops, when I made the link that was not what I copied. I will edit if necessary.

I googled krill oil and chose the WebMD site because it did not see to be selling anything.

Diagnosed as type 2 in 2005 with an A1c of 9.1

Started with metformin and a low dose of an ARB for blood pressure. Added a sulfonylurea (a med that helps my pancreas produce my own insulin) Also a low dose of Crestor to lower my cholesterol.
After 7 years I could no longer tolerate metformin so am doing my best to keep control with a max dose of the sulfonylurea and lots of walking, some swimming.
