Fatty Acid test assesses the balance of fatty acids in the body’s erythrocyte cell in order to determine the effects of toxicity within the cells. The actual analytics are performed at the Kennedy Krieger Research Laboratory, John Hopkins Academic Medical Center, Baltimore, USA.

The apparatuses developed by Kennedy Krieger Institute provide the most accurate analyses and enable research on peroxisomal diseases such as adrenoleukodys-trophy. This illness is caused by special long-chain fatty acids that accumulate in the body.

Today, discussions are focused on mitochondrial diseases such as CFS. The exact quantitative test results are recorded in Patricia Kane’s (Ph. D.) database system at BodyBio, on the basis of which the therapist receives a clear, comprehensible report.

Firstly, the report shows whether too many long-chain fatty acids have accumulated in the body, for example. Secondly, the therapist can see whether sufficient structure fats are at all available and whether precursors of myelin sheaths are existent. Thirdly, all intermediate metabolic steps of the essential fatty acids Omega3 and Omega6 are listed, enabling the therapist to draw conclusions on an under- or oversupply or metabolic problems.

Like the blood test analysis, the report provides the therapist with suggestions for a therapeutical regime and detailed nutrition recommendations.
