PWS Diet News

July 7, 2009

Persons on the low fat PWS diet are most likely deficient in both omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. These nutrients have been reported to have beneficial effects on depression, dementia, immune function, diabetes, cardiac health and cancer. They also have a beneficial side effect of decreasing constipation. The most effective way to provide these supplements appears to be using a liquid preparation of fish oil (Omega -3) and plant seed oil (omega- 6). (Do not use cod liver oil!) When purchasing you should be looking for a high quality product purified by molecular distillation.
Thanks to Linda M. Gourash, MD and Janice L. Forster, MD from the Pittsburgh partnership for this information.
