There is a test to measure your Omega Score in your blood to determine what percentages of EPA/DHA omega 3 fatty acids are in your red blood cells. This test will determine if you are at risk for a heart attack, sudden cardic death, or even fatal ischemic heart disease. Omega 3’s play a role in the reduction of triglycerides.
It’s important to know the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids. I have a friend, a St. Luke’s patient, who had this done, including reduction of her high triglycerides, and it they have been under control for years. (1500 to 200 triglycerides, she said with prescriptions)
This test costs $98.00 through Life Extension.
