Organic Acid Test (OAT)
General Nutritional And Metabolic Profile
The Organic Acid Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of the general health of a patient checking more than 70 markers. It provides an accurate evaluation of the intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavioural disorders, hyperacidity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.
Many people with chronic diseases and neurological disorders can excrete several abnormal organic acids in your urine. The cause of these high levels could include the use of oral antibiotics, diets with high sugar content, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.
Our organic acid test also includes markers of vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress and levels of neurotransmitters. It is the only OAT to include oxalate markers, which are highly correlated with many chronic diseases.
