Gene Smart Omega-3 Index
The multivariable-adjusted relative risk for sudden cardiac death by quartile of the Omega-3 Index compared with other, more traditional circulating risk factors. The quartiles at presumed highest risk (black bars) are set at a relative risk of 1.0. Each subsequent lighter bar represents the risk at each decreasing (or, for HDL and omega-3 index, increasing) quartile. CRP, C-reactive protein; Hcy, homocysteine; TC, total cholesterol; Tg, triacylglycerols. Source: Physician’s Health Study.
