What is the purpose of the fatty acid analysis?
Studies have shown that Germans have considerable deficits in the area of fatty acids. Yet unsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in particular fulfil important tasks in the human organism.
Unsaturated fatty acids lead to faster regeneration and the prevention of muscle injuries. The performance of the heart and lungs is also improved. In patients with rheumatism and arthrosis, the omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect.
That is why we offer a fatty acid analysis. From this analysis we obtain the HS Omega-3 Index, which we use as a basis for treatment with an individual supplement of healthy fatty acids. Afterwards, we check your fatty acid index every 6 months.
How is the analysis carried out?
For analysis, 3 ml of blood is taken from you. Then the concentration on the membrane of the erythrocytes is measured in a laboratory. This can be thought of as "fatty acid memory". The value is therefore not falsified by the food intake of the last few days. The result is a detailed analysis of the fatty acid concentration in your body.
11. what is the recovery process?
This question is very individual and cannot be answered in general terms. It depends on the individual case and in particular on the type of surgical intervention. In any case, it will take several weeks before you can walk again without crutches after a knee operation, and it usually takes up to six months, and in some cases even 12 months, before you can put full weight on your knee again.
In the case of a cartilage cell transplant, for example, the knee can usually only be loaded normally again one year after the operation. The recovery process for cruciate ligament tears is also very long; full weight-bearing is not permitted until six months at the earliest. This is more difficult to assess in the case of meniscus surgery. Whatever knee surgery you have, it is very important that physiotherapy begins immediately after the operation and that the recovery process is well supervised by specialists. Therefore, do not miss the follow-up examinations under any circumstances. They help to ensure that the
Whatever knee surgery you get, it is very important that immediately after the operation physiotherapy begins and that the recovery process is professionally well accompanied. Therefore, do not miss the follow-up examinations under any circumstances. They help to ensure that the operation is worthwhile for you and that you can hopefully move (almost) pain-free again.
