Organic Acids- Ketone/Fatty Acid Metabolites (Test Code 4015)

The organic acids test is a simple urine test that looks at biomarkers from various metabolic pathways. Ketones are an acid remaining when the body burns its own fat. Glucose is the primary source of energy. When Glucose stores have been used for energy, fat stores are utilised. Individuals with a fatty-acid metabolism disorder are unable to metabolise this fat source for energy. Increased urinary fatty acids can be associated with fasting, increased intake of triglycerides or specific amino acid deficiency. Fatty acid oxidation defects are associated with hypoglycaemia, and lethargy, gall bladder dysfunction.

Patient Brochure

The organic acid –ketone/fatty acid profile measures markers that can reveal malabsorption and dysbiosis. These imbalances can be addressed to improve gut health and to help prevent or alleviate: chronic digestive problems, common causes of nutritional deficiency, yeast overgrowth, cognitive impairment, gastrointestinal distress, and degenerative conditions.

Common Conditions:

• Steatorrhea
• Fatty liver
• Detoxification impairment
• Dysbiosis
• IBS
• Indigestion
• Obesity
• Impaired amino acid utilisation
• Fatigue
