Organic Acids Profile


Indications:

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behaviour disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids. The cause of these high levels may include: oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors. If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, or dietary modification.

A profile of 73 organic acids (including 20 microbial organic acids). These profiles are referred to Great Plains Laboratory in the USA - please contact us for further details.

NOTE: Samples for this test are referred to the Great Plains Laboratory in the USA.
