Mother’s Milk-DHA Score
Your patient information is located on the upper left-hand corner. Below this is your MM-DHA score measured relative to the worldwide average (0.32% DHA of breast milk fatty acids). A short discussion of DHA in breast milk follows, with recommendations that are customized to your MM-DHA score. In addition, our Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment number is listed on each page.
DHA content (in milligrams) in fish and supplements grouped by mercury content
Beginning with Atlantic Salmon and ending with Orange Roughy, this table lists the DHA content of a variety of fish sorted by mercury content. Also listed is the content of DHA found in common supplements. These values (per 6 oz serving) are based on USDA Nutrient Data Lab values and are for fish cooked with dry heat unless otherwise noted.
