Organic Acids-Metabolic Profile (Test Code 4016)

The organic acids test is a simple urine test that looks at biomarkers from various metabolic pathways. These biomarkers give an overview of several major systems in the body and an analysis of nutritional deficiencies in the body. The organic acid test is a nutritional test providing insights into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect.

Patient Brochure

The Organic Acids metabolic test is the preferred test used in clinical practice as many functional medicine practitioners believe the metabolic panel provides remarkable data about a patient from one simple urine collection kit. This test assess a wide range of cellular and physiological processes including intestinal dysbiosis, energy production, nutrient cofactor requirements and neurotransmitter metabolism. By evaluating organic acid levels and pinpointing the metabolic dysfunctions occurring at the cellular level, a comprehensive, customised treatment strategy can be tailor-made for each individual patient.
This test is the single most comprehensive test in evaluating:
• Citric acid cycle abnormalities
• B-group vitamin utilisation
• Neurotransmitter abnormalities
• CoQ 10 sufficiency
• Amino acid insufficiencies
• GUT Dysbiosis
• Yeast infestation
• Nutritional deficiencies
• Fatty acid metabolism

Common Conditions:

• Fatigue
• Mood changes
• Blood sugar dysregulation
• Weight gain
• Nausea
• Multiple chemical sensitivity
• Bloating, gas and distention
• Joint pain
• Acid reflux
• Autoimmune disorders
• Dermatitis
