I don't eat seafood. Should I be taking omega 3 supplements/vitamins or should I get it from another source such as walnuts?

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Since you have not had sea food, chances of allergy to sea food are there if you take it not knowing the food allergy status. Hence i suggest you to avoid sea food and take other sources of omega 3 supplements like walnuts, flaxseeds, hemp oil, soyabean oil and pumpkin seeds.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
