ARE YOU CONSTANTLY TIRED AND FEELING UNWELL? DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH FINDING ANSWERS ABOUT YOUR CONDITION ESPECIALLY AFTER ALL BLOOD TESTS COME BACK NORMAL?
THERE IS A WAY TO FIND OUT BY USING THE “ROLLS ROYCE” OF FUNCTIONAL TESTING CALLED THE ORGANIC ACIDS TEST, A URINE SAMPLE ABLE TO REVEAL DYSFUNCTION AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ABLE TO DETECT WHICH NUTRIENTS ARE NEEDED TO GET YOU OUT OF THIS ROLLERCOASTER OF ILL HEALTH ONCE AND FOR ALL.
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.
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.
Urine: 10 mL of morning’s first urine sample drawn before ingestion of any meals is recommended.
