The Organic Acids Test (OAT) is a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health. It tests over 70 markers to provide an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria levels.
Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders have several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high organic acid levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.
