fatty acid analysis

Details

Fatty Acid Analysis Blood Test
with EPA and DHA Levels & Omega-3 Index

Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthy fats that reduce inflammation, inhibit cancer development and protect our blood vessels. They offer significant benefits for overall cardiovascular health and also protect against dementia, depression, inflammatory diseases, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dry eye, macular degeneration, joint health and allergies. Unfortunately, most Americans, especially vegans and those not consuming fatty fish regularly, do not get optimal omega-3's from their diet.

We are now offering the HS-Omega-3 Index® blood test. This test measures the level of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in your red blood cells. It will help you determine your risk for sudden cardiac death and other health issues. Research has shown that a favorable HS-Omega-3 Index is associated with a lower risk of sudden cardiac death. For example, reaching a level of 6.5% reduces your risk by 90%.

  • Easy to do finger-stick test that you can do yourself at home.
  • No doctor visit or blood draw required.
  • The results include a complete fatty acid analysis including the omega-3 index.
  • Results will be reviewed
  • Supplemental recommendations provided by Dr. Fuhrman, if necessary, based on the results.
  • Receive results and recommendations via email in as little as 2 weeks!
  • The test kit includes a test request form, collection instructions, contact-activated lancet and collection card, plastic bag with desiccant packet and paid return envelope.

This test is the most accurate research grade fatty acid analysis available.

This test is not available to residents outside the U.S. or New York.

Iodine Test Product Image

Home Iodine Test

Iodine is a trace mineral that is required for proper thyroid function; iodine is a component of thyroid hormones, and crucial for brain and nervous system development. The primary source of iodine in the American diet is iodized salt, and diets that exclude or minimize salt are likely to be low in iodine. On the other hand, regular consumption of seaweed or sea vegetables (such as kelp), may provide an excessive amount of iodine; too much iodine can also negatively affect thyroid function. Dr. Fuhrman recommends avoiding salt and supplementing with iodine to achieve adequacy (iodine is included in Dr. Fuhrman’s line of multivitamin and mineral supplements).

To assure that your iodine is favorable, neither too low or too high, you can test your iodine levels at home. ZRT Laboratory’s Iodine Test measures iodine from two dried urine samples to evaluate iodine status. Collecting and shipping the samples is simple and convenient – the two urine samples are dried on filter paper, and the filter paper is shipped to the laboratory.

Home Vitamin D Test Product Image

Home Vitamin D Test

Vitamin D has emerged as a crucial nutrient for many different aspects of health. There are vitamin D receptors on almost every cell in the human body. Insufficient vitamin D levels are associated with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, autoimmune diseases, and several cancers.

Since vitamin D is scarce in foods and getting adequate sun exposure without increasing skin cancer risk is difficult, Dr. Fuhrman recommends supplementation. Vitamin D requirements are not the same for everyone, and supplementation should aim to keep blood vitamin D levels within the optimal range of 30-50 ng/ml. Testing vitamin D levels at home can guide supplementation to achieve a vitamin D level in this optimal range, without the inconvenience of doctor visits and blood draws.

ZRT Laboratory’s Blood Spot Vitamin D test allows you to test your vitamin D levels at home with a simple finger stick; the blood is simply dried on a piece of filter paper and shipped to the laboratory. Blood Spot testing provides results on par with those from regular serum tests.

This test is not available to residents outside the U.S. or New York.

*To receive your test results, use the included UPS pre-paid pouch to return your specimen and Dr Fuhrman's medical office will contact you with the results.

QuickVue iFOB Test Kit

This iFOB (immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood) test is extremely accurate and sensitive at detecting blood in the stool. Dr. Fuhrman is making this test available here because it is not available at the typical doctors office and the stool “guaiac” tests, done in typical doctor’s offices are not accurate or sensitive enough and, therefore, essentially worthless. These new, very sensitive, stool tests can detect even a tiny amount of blood leakage from adenomas polyps, villous adenomas, and dysplastic polyps, thus detecting lesions in the colon before they become cancer.

This test is an FDA-cleared and CLIA-waived diagnostic tool intended to detect the presence of blood in stool specimens. Blood in the stool is an indication of a number of gastrointestinal disorders, including colorectal cancer.

  • One test. One time.
  • No dietary restrictions.
  • Clear, concise instructions.
  • Flushable collection paper with printed instructions and adhesive connectors.
  • United States Postal Service (USPS) compliant packaging.*
$40.99


This test is not available to residents outside the U.S.

*Test results can be obtained via Dr. Fuhrman’s medical office by returning the self-addressed small box that comes with the test kit. Postage will apply.
