The Mom's DHA Test is a blood test that measures the amount of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA in red blood cell membranes. Knowing your DHA level is important because pregnant women with higher DHA blood levels are less likely to have early preterm birth. Pregnant women should strive for a DHA level of at least 5%. DHA plays an important role in your baby's brain, eye, and immune system development. Once you know your DHA level, you can personalize your diet to safely change it in as little as 2-3 months. 3 Simple Steps: Measure: Eating fish or taking supplements does not guarantee your DHA test results will be in the desirable range - they must be measured. Modify: With your DHA test results, you will have the tools to personalize your omega-3 intake. Monitor: Track how your dietary changes affect your DHA test results by testing every 4-6 months.
