    Hi everyone

    This is a bit of a strange one, but here goes...........

    I have noticed my knees are creaking quite a bit lately and can't help thinking it is because of the lack of oil in my diet these days (doing SW for 10 months).
    Someone mentioned I should take cod liver oil capsules, but I am concerned that they may have a syn value.

    Does anyone have a similar problem with creaking bones or know if Cod liver oil capsules have syn value?

    Thanks all x

    weird....consultante was on about pills yesterday and she said the only pills with a syn value are..
    cod liver oil
    and fruit lozengers and medicine sweet type ones
    and lemsip, basically anything that has got fruity/ sweetners added to them
    As I can remember Im sure she said 1 oil capsule is 1/2 syn

    2 syns! Gutted. I could have a quality street and live with the creaky knees........?

    I wonder if lack of fat is the cause? I never used to have it, and you would think losing weight would help your joints, but I did used to use a lot of olive oil in cooking before.........?

    I wouldn't have thought it was lack of fat... anyway, you're not going without fat totally. Just less of it. Your joints aren't lubricated with fat, as such. You could try a Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement as that is good for joints and bones. Or if you're really concerned, speak to your doctor about it. He/she can advise the likely cause and what to do about it.

    To be honest, at 1/2 a syn per capsule, if you're only taking one a day, I'd ignore the 1/2 syn, it's going to make absolutely s*d all difference.
