Organic Acids- Environmental Pollutant Panel (Test Code 4014)

The organic acids test is a simple urine test that looks at biomarkers from various metabolic pathways. Since we are exposed to multiple chemicals which may have a combination effect (e.g. additive, synergistic) associated with low-level exposures to multiple classes of contaminants, which may impact a variety of organ systems. Sources of contamination of pollutants may be found in our diet, air pollution, or smoking.

Patient Brochure

The organic acid environmental pollutant panel is a significant test in clinical practice. It is evident that increasing exposure to environmental pollutants has been linked to many chronic diseases such as autism spectrum disorders, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Usually, many different individual tests are necessary to determine each pollutant. However, the environmental pollutant panel makes it possible in one single test to measure the degree of toxicity to pollutants in the environment, whether it be in the air, what we consume or what we are exposed to. This unique test measures the environmental pollutants which assesses exposure to benzene, xylene, toluene, trimethylbenzene, styrene and phthalate.
