Great Plains Laboratory has just released a new version of their Organic Acids Test (OAT). This urine assessment is a cornerstone test for individuals with Autism-Spectrum Disorders, mental health challenges, neurological disorders, chronic fatigue and/or digestive problems, sleep issues and other health challenges.
The new version of the OAT offers additional markers for brain chemistry imbalances (that may contribute to anxiety, depression, behavioral and sleep difficulties) and updated information regarding mitochondrial problems and metabolic imbalances.
The Organic Acids Test is an accurate assessment of what is going on metabolically in the body:
* Organic acids are chemical compounds excreted in the urine that are products of metabolism.
* Evaluates for over 75 urinary metabolites that can be useful for discovering underlying causes of chronic illness or linked to various disorders.
* Treatment based on OAT findings often leads to improved energy, sleep and mental health conditions, as well as reduced attention and concentration problems, chronic pain, digestive problems and neurological disorders.
The Organic Acid Test is a comprehensive assessment for a wide variety of biomarkers related to yeast (candida) and bacteria toxicity – specifically clostridia bacteria. It also evaluates oxalate toxicity, as well as mitochondria function, and various markers for vitamin and neurotransmitter problems. The Organic Acid Test includes a section for amino acid metabolites which can detect inborn errors of metabolism. Overall, the Organic Acid Test is a foundational test that should be considered for anyone dealing with a chronic health problems.
