Organic Acids

 

The organic acids test (OAT) is a urine test which provides a comprehensive look at a patient’s metabolism and overall health. This is accomplished by measuring various organic acids, which are chemical compounds resulting from cellular energy production. This “metabolic snapshot” consists of over 70 markers, including:

  • Bacterial overgrowth
  • The presence of yeast
  • Vitamin levels
  • Mineral levels
  • Measurement of oxidative stress
  • Neurotransmitter levels
  • Measurement of immune system function

When abnormalities are detected using the OAT, they frequently provide explanations for common complaints including fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues, trouble sleeping, frequent infections, and other immune system issues. Whether these abnormalities are a contributing factor for cancer development, a result of cancer itself, or a complication of prior cancer treatments, it is important to address these issues so that the body can function optimally at a cellular level.
