Yes, the test works the same in children and adults. However, we typically recommend an Omega-3 Index of >6% as desirable for pediatric populations. Younger people tend to have lower Omega-3 Index levels and this study suggests that 6% is a therapeutic target for kids. Getting to 8% is still safe and desirable, but the target can be lower.
