CorOmega: Review and Test

On June 4, 2011, in Reviews, Tests, by Andrea

For a long time, I’ve been recommending CorOmega somewhat blindly — based on recommendations from others and blood tests of other bypassers showing great results using the product, but without actually trying it.

While in Vegas, I had the opportunity to speak to the CorOmega rep, try all of the flavors (one of while is missing from the above photo — sorry!), and arrange a special blood testing for myself to kind of get an idea how these affect bypassers. More about that later.

This last time, I got a copy in the mail with no notations.  I’d already looked at it, noticed what needed to change, planned those modifications (ie my vitamin K needs to go up) and moved on.

While in Texas, apparently, I got another copy, this time with notations by my PCP, who, obviously means well but knows nothing about vitamins.  As a point, when I was bruising he told me to discontinue ALL vitamin K supplements as they would make my bruising worse.  Umm, hello?
