What is an Organic Acid test?
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) is a urine-based test that measures certain biomarkers. The test gives metabolic insight into a person’s overall health.
It is believed that people with chronic illnesses, neurological issues, and other health conditions often excrete abnormal acids in their urine.
What does the test all look at?
The OAT gives an overview of several major systems in the body and analyzes nutrient deficiencies.
Abnormal concentrations of organic acids provide functional markers for the metabolic effects of micronutrient inadequacies, toxin exposure, neuro-endocrine activity, enzyme deficiencies, and intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Utilizing this test can reveal the need for dietary modifications, antioxidant and nutrient support, detoxification, oxalate reduction, and other therapies.
As you will see, the previous methylation test correlates with some of the findings in this test.
We will be going through each section, just like we did with the previous methylation test. I will give a short overview of each section, the result, the comment from the laboratory, the comment from his doctor and the recommendation for treatment.
The test was ordered by Dr Louise Lindenberg and done through North West University. This test was done in 2019.
The unit measurements used are as follows: The amount is reported as the concentration of the substance (as mmol or micrograms) concerning a reference amount of creatinine (per mol or per milligram) found in the urine. The concentration of creatinine is used as a reference for how much water the person drank, which can tell you if the sample is too diluted.
PLEASE NOTE: THE TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION IS STRICTLY RELATING TO ALEX’S RESULTS AND NOT MEANT FOR SELF-TREATMENT. ALWAYS SPEAK TO YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER BEFORE STARTING ANY TREATMENTS.
