Are low total omega-6 levels on the ION panel a cause for concern? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #51

Question Are low polyunsaturated omega-6 values on the ION test a concern?

Not the total, but if the arachidonic acid levels are low I would look at low arachidonic acid intake, or inflammation, or oxidative stress. It would concern me because arachidonic acid is important to a lot of physiological functions, but I don't care about the total omega-6.
