On Friday I found out I have Fibrocystic Breast (at least thats what the Breast Specialist is leaning toward at this point). She wants me to reduce caffeine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> sigh... and take 200-400 units of Vitamin E and (2) 500 mg capsules 3xday of Evening Primrose Oil.<br><br>
At the store yesterday there were different kinds. Do you know which should would be talking about?

In terms of forms of vitamin E, the d-alpha kind is preferred over dl-alpha.<br><br>
You've got a folate/folic acid thing, right?<br><br>
Maybe consider this multivit, it has 400 IU of vitamin E, and 1000mcg of real folate. It's sold lots of places online, this is just one (of several) that I've purchased from.<br><br><a href="http://www.nationaldiscountvitamins.com/details.cfm?Group_ID=40&Product_ID=5801" target="_blank">http://www.nationaldiscountvitamins....roduct_ID=5801</a><br><br>
I don't know much about EPO, not enough to figure out which brand to choose.<br><br>
I've run across references linking fibrocystic breasts and lack of iodine, I think there may be more discussion in the Iodine thread that JaneS started if you're interested in looking into that as well.

Yes as Tanya said I would read in the iodine thread. I too have read there's a connection between iodine and fibrocystic breast but sorry I don't know a whole lot about it.
