The Prenatal DHA Test measures the amount of the omega-3 DHA in red blood cell membranes. Knowing our prenatal DHA level is important because pregnant women with higher DHA blood levels are less likely to have early preterm birth. DHA also plays an important role in our baby's brain, vision, and immune system health and development. The Prenatal DHA Test requires a simple finger prick, which draws a drop of blood. The drop is mailed to OmegaQuant, a leading provider of nutritional status tests. Results will be provided within a couple of weeks, which will include dietary recommendations to help us reach the desirable prenatal DHA range if our level is low . With the right diet choices, we can modify our prenatal DHA level in as little as 3-4 months.
