Fish oil itself is not known to assist with fructose malabsorption directly, although it is suspected to assist with irritable bowel syndrome. If you have IBS, you may need more omega-3 fatty acids in your diet such as those that come from fish oil. Quite paradoxically however, supplementing with fish oil can cause side effects in your digestive system that are very similar to IBS such as flatulence, belching, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea and abdominal pain. These side effects are most likely dose-dependent. If you experience these side effects while taking fish oil simply take less of the supplement. It is also advised to take fish oil with meals to minimize digestive side effects. Start with a small dose and gradually increase to a larger dose. This will also lesson the chance of digestive side effects.
*Increased intake of omega 3 fatty acids may raise resting blood sugar in diabetics and reduce blood clotting. Diabetics and those taking a blood thinner should only take omega 3 supplements under the supervision of a doctor.

Be sure not to take too much, especially at first to prevent possible digestion upsets from the oil itself. Fish oil sometimes negatively impacts your digestive system by causing gas or diarrhea, particularly if you take too much at once or consume it between, rather than with, meals.
Be sure to check with your doctor if necessary. Increased intake of omega 3 fatty acids may raise resting blood sugar in diabetics and reduce blood clotting. Diabetics and those taking a blood thinner should only take omega 3 supplements under the supervision of a doctor.
