During challenging times, your patients may be more prone to mental conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and the like. But these can be managed with the right treatment. Genomind Professional PGx can help you determine the best treatment for their condition by identifying variations in 24 genes used in psychiatric treatment.

Principal

Doctor’s Data, Inc., DDI (Illinois, USA)

Description

Measures the primary Omega-6 and Omega-3 PUFAs, and monounsaturated, saturated, and trans fatty acids that are present as constituents of phospholipids in the membranes of erythrocytes. Each fatty acid is reported as a percentage of the total fatty acids measured and important fatty acid ratios are presented. Commentary is provided for results exceeding reference intervals.

Indications

ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer’s Disease, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Blood Pressure, Cardiovascular Health, Coagulation, Lipid/Lipoprotein Levels, Immune Response, Inflammatory Response to Injury and Infection, Seizure Disorders, Tumor Growth and Inhibition

Specimen

8 ml whole blood

Preparation

The test requires no special diet or fasting prior to collection. Please refrain from taking supplemental oils (e.g. Fish oil) on the day of collection. Never discontinue prescription medications without first consulting your physician.

Methodology

DETERMINE THE IDEAL FATTY ACIDS LEVELS

We tend to have too many carbohydrates and saturated fats in our diet, and this can lead to imbalanced essential and nonessential fatty acid intake. Erythrocyte fatty acid analysis 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 analysis is used in developing the most effective dietary and supplemental treatment program to restore the correct ratios among fatty acids

HOW FATTY ACIDS ANALYSIS CAN HELP YOUR PATIENTS

  • Can help in developing the most effective dietary and supplemental treatment program to restore appropriate ratios among fatty acids.
  • Can identify if fatty acid levels are the cause of mental health conditions (ADHD, Alzheimer’s Disease, etc), and cardiovascular and blood-related conditions.
  • The results can lead to improved and customized treatment strategies and patient outcomes

OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR YOUR PATIENTS

  • The test requires no special diet or fasting prior to collection.
  • Patients however should refrain from taking supplemental oils (e.g. Fish oil) on the day of collection.
  • Specimen: Blood
  • Turnaround time: Three to four days

END-TO-END PROCEDURE

  1. The doctor will prescribe the test.
  2. GMT’s key account manager will get in touch with you to schedule the extraction of the sample. They will also answer additional questions you might have about the procedure.
  3. GMT’s medical technologist will personally go to the agreed location to collect the sample.
  4. The specimen will then be analyzed in the laboratory.

A GREAT WAY OF ASSESSING YOUR CONDITION–THROUGH YOUR FATTY ACIDS

The DDI Fatty Acids performs nutritional testing to determine the appropriate balance of membrane phospholipid EFAs. This is important because the biological effects of the ω-3 and ω-6 FAs metabolites are mediated by their mutual interactions.

This test measures the primary ω-6 and ω-3 PUFAs, and monounsaturated, saturated and trans FAs that are present as constituents of phospholipids in the membranes of erythrocytes. Each FA is reported as a percentage of the total FAs measured and important FA ratios are presented. Commentary is provided for results exceeding reference intervals.
