What is Organic Acid Testing?

The Organic Acids Test (also known as OAT) provides an all-inclusive metabolic take of a patient’s overall health conditions on a 70 markers platform. The test among other measurements, gives an accurate evaluation of the intestinal yeast and bacteria. It’s a non-invasive test. 

The presence of such microorganisms in abnormally high levels can result (or worsen existing conditions) in movement related disorders, several behavior disorders, hyperactivity in individuals, fatigue and immune function compromise.

Why Urine Organic Acids Test Is Important for Getting To The Root Causes Of Your Disease?

Urine is responsible for carrying out soluble forms of waste from the body. It also carries chemical substances that are released by organs in case of an infection or disease. Urine also carries organic acids which are easier to extract and test compared to plasma level tests.

Urine organic acid test accurately detects a wide range of compounds present in the urine. It acts as a highly dependable diagnostic test for organic acidemias like propionic, methylmalonic, and isovaleric acids. 

The organic acid test also accurately detects the presence of glutaric acid, a progressive neurotoxic defect that occurs during a biomolecule conversion. Abnormal fat compounds in the urine can indicate fatty acid oxidation defects. Similarly, the presence of succinylacetone is a strong indicator of tyrosinemia. Tricky to detect organic acids like lactic acid and ketones are also detectable in a urine organic acids test.

The test is also used to detect genetic disorders caused by insufficient enzyme production in the body.

So what problems and imbalances can an organic acids test identify?

 

Cellular Energy Production:

We have cells in the body to make energy. Nutrient deficiencies such as B-vitamins, protein deficiencies, mineral deficiencies, low levels of Lipoic Acid, CoQ10, Magnesium can cause low cellular energy production which in turn leads to fatigue, poor memory, concentration issues to name a few.

 

Fatty Acid Metabolism:

Cells also derive energy from burning fat properly. Metabolism errors in this function causes you to feel tired, down and have difficulty losing weight or burning fat. Again, certain nutrients will address this dysfunction.

 

B –Vitamin Status:

B-Vitamin deficiencies can cause low energy, mood issues and methylation or detoxification problems. The test can pinpoint certain B- Vitamins that will benefit and address the metabolic pathway.

 

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO):

This condition is prevalent I find in IBS and it can’t be found in a stool test. There are certain bacterial markers that indicate bacteria problems in the small intestine. A comprehensive gut protocol can be designed for this sort of problem. In clinical practice, this treatment alone can improve fatigue, mood, inflammation and other body-wide problems.

 

Candida Overgrowth:

Yeast infection can cause a myriad of body-wide problems. The test can measure levels of candida and this can be the cause of the fatigue, gut symptoms, inflammation, foggy head and pain that one experiences.

 

Neurotransmitter/stress Hormone Metabolism:

Brain chemistry is measured through compounds found in urine which can ascertain adrenal fatigue, dopamine, tyrosine and serotonin deficiencies which can affect mood and addictive patterns.

 

Oxidative Stress/Inflammation:

Oxidative stress and inflammation is also measured through specific organic acid markers. Important to correct if suffering from allergies, infections and autoimmune problems.

I’m sure you’ll agree, an organic acids test provides tons of information that has helped me unravel health mysteries for hundreds of my clients. Sometimes the treatment only involves a few nutrients to improve the function, and in other cases, more systems have to be considered and affected to get you back in good health.

Specimen Requirements For Urine Organic Acids Test

Urine: 10 mL of morning’s first urine sample drawn before ingestion of any meals is recommended. It is best to avoid apples, grapes (including raisins), pears, cranberries and their respective juices, arabinogalactan, echinacea, reishi mushrooms, and ribose supplements respectively 48 hours before sample collection.
