Fatty Acids Profile, Plasma

Why Test Fatty Acids?

  • Improve patient compliance: Testing guides and supports your recommendations for higher doses of fatty acid supplements
  • Inflammatory balance: Improper fatty acid intake affects the balance of anti- and pro-inflammatory eicosanoids, increasing health risks
  • Increased free radical production: Consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) without increasing antioxidant intake will cause increased production of free radicals.
