What are some of the symptoms of overdoing fish oil? Mostly GI issues?

Thanks,
Brad

Up and down between 95.9 and 96.2 for the last four mornings.

And Garrett, my wife and I started taking 5 drops of lugol's solution daily a few days ago. I haven't really noticed any difference, but Dana's chronically cold hands and feet suddenly became warm on the second day and have remained so. Do I really have to take the loading dose for a couple of months?

I need to remember to bring home my dang thermometer!!!

Stuart,
The loading dose won't hurt you in any way, the solution is cheap, so I'd say you have several options:

Stay on it for several months.
Test in several months to find out if you (or your wife, who is obviously benefiting) have reached sufficiency.
Quit the loading dose "early" and hope that you eventually reach sufficiency on a daily maintenance dose. Yes, this is an "every day, for the rest of your life" kind of supplement (unless you live by the ocean AND start eating a whole bunch of sea veggies).

It will likely take your wife significantly longer to reach sufficiency than you, however, without testing, we'll never know.

That's great about your wife's results so quickly! I live for that stuff.

great post, ive been fasting alot and also doing high fat/low calorie diet and ive been struggling with rash on my left arm and in my head for 1-2 months now. I have been searching all over and i came across thyroid and i took my tempeture. The last two days now its been a bit under, so my thyroid is slacking. Thanx for all the info, gonna cut out the fasting and eat a bit more. thanx again

Add some carb up days as well....low carb all the time can lower metabolism through the leptin pathway.
