Fatty Acids; Erythrocytes


The typical Western diet contains too many carbohydrates and saturated fats, and is often imbalanced with respect to essential and nonessential fatty acid intake. Erythrocyte fatty acid nutritional testing is used to assess levels of and balance among the essential and non-essential fatty acids required for optimal health and wellness. Essential fatty acids regulate cell membrane integrity, blood pressure and coagulation, lipid levels, immune response, tumor growth and inhibition, and the inflammatory response to injury and infection. Erythrocyte Fatty Acid nutritional testing aids in developing the most efficacious dietary and supplemental treatment program to restore appropriate ratios among fatty acids.

This test is useful for

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Blood Pressure
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Coagulation
  • Lipid/Lipoprotein Levels
  • Immune Response
  • Inflammatory Response to Injury and Infection
  • Seizure Disorders
