DHA-Who is likely to be deficient?
Premature infants who are not breast-fed are often DHA-deficient. A link has appeared between DHA deficiency and Alzheimer's disease; however, no evidence at this time indicates that supplementation with DHA will help Alzheimer's patients. Similarly, preliminary evidence shows that children with attention deficit disorder (ADD) have low DHA levels. However, no evidence demonstrates that DHA supplementation improves ADD. Preliminary evidence suggests that people with a variety of rare but related congenital diseases (Zellweger's syndrome, neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy, and infantile Refsum's disease) may be DHA-deficient, and may even benefit from DHA supplementation. Many doctors believe the diets of most people eating a Western diet do not provide optimal amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
At least four studies have reported a reduced blood level of omega-3 fatty acids in people with depression.
