A complete fatty acid profile test.

Assessing Essential Fatty Acids

While traditionally the health impact of fatty acids was mainly associated with cardiovascular disease, it is now widely recognized that fatty acids also play a crucial role in the development of other diseases including type 2 diabetes, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. Thus, maintaining optimal levels of fatty acids is essential for overall health and wellbeing.

MosaicDX provides the Omega-3 Index Complete Test which assesses the fatty acid levels in blood using a dried blood spot for collection. This comprehensive test not only reports the levels of all 24 fatty acids but also includes the Omega-3 index, ratios, and the trans-fat index, providing a holistic analysis of one’s fatty acid status.

Turnaround times are estimates.
