The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with over 75 markers. It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections as well as genetic factors.
Our Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and is the only OAT to include markers for oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses.
If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants or dietary modification.
Upon treatment, patients and practitioners have reported significant improvement such as:
- decreased fatigue
- regular bowel function
- increased energy and alertness
- increased concentration
- improved verbal skills
- less hyperactivity
- decreased abdominal pain
The OAT is strongly recommended as an initial screening test.
