EFAs, Omega wotsits and SusieB’s eyes
I’ve been reading up on exactly what we need to know about the various (frankly confusing) different essential fatty acids (EFAs) that need to be in generous quantities in Susie-Belle’s diet and which need to be less in order to give her maximum dietary support for eye-health as well as her overall wellbeing. It’s a topic I have a vague understanding of in human health, but my interest this week has been piqued after her mixed results on Monday with her eyes and me then finding a research study that’s shown positive results by supplementing with EFAs in cases of KCS.
When it comes to understanding EFAs, we’re talking oils, we’re talking omegas. There’s oodles of info on oils and their omega 3,6,9 profiles, but I found it quite a task getting my bearings in all the data. There are good and bad levels, good and bad oils, some we want loads of, some we want to keep at a minimum.
So I’ve got some on order and will be making a plan to ensure we get the balance and variety spot-on for supplementing her foods over the next few weeks and with a bit of luck this will lead to improvements in her eyes when we revisit Mr Fraser in March.
