Fatty Acid Profile
Measuring major fatty acids in red blood cells
Having elevated levels of trans-fats can lead to increased LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol) and can increase risk of heart disease. Red blood cell membranes are used to measure the fatty acid content, since they provide much less variability than measuring serum or plasma levels.
