Organic Acids Test (OAT) - Nutritional & Metabolic Profile



The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. 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 often excrete several abnormal organic acids. The cause of these high levels could include: oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors.

If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, or dietary modification. Upon treatment, patients and practitioners have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain. The OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test.

The Microbial Organic Acids Test (MOAT) is ideal for follow-up to the OAT and is often recommended by practitioners looking for a specific abnormality, to monitor certain microbial imbalances, or to assess treatment efficacy.


 


"Interpretation of the Organic Acids Test" by Dr. William Shaw from The Great Plains Laboratory on Vimeo.


Join Dr. Shaw for an explanation of The Great Plains Laboratory’s Organic Acids Test (OAT) from the creator himself. 

GPL’s most popular test was recently expanded to 74 markers and their OAT is U.S. Patented, offering twice the number of markers than their competitors. Dr. Shaw will explain this unique test in detail and review the results of five OAT cases.

The OAT provides a metabolic “snapshot” based on the products the body discards through the urine. These small, discarded organic acid molecules are byproducts of human cellular activity, the digestion of foods, and the metabolism of gastrointestinal flora. At certain levels, organic acids in urine may be indicators of toxicity or “markers” of the function of metabolic pathways. Levels of yeast or gastrointestinal bacteria metabolites are compared to normal levels of human metabolites, providing an assessment of yeast and bacterial activity.

The new and improved OAT has increased the number of tested compounds to 74 and two new ratios have been added. The new compounds detected may result from variations in vitamin and hormone metabolism, energy level, intestinal wall integrity, neurotransmission, and muscle function.


Testimonials    

"After identifying a low serotonin level on an Organic Acid Test (a hallmark functional medicine test), A severely depressed and suicidal man began taking 100mg of 5htp twice a day (5htp is the direct precursor to serotonin). After 2 days, he said his depression virtually disappeared and he was no longer suicidal. I love when I can identify a biochemical glitch and someone can have such a profound emotional turn around."

–Dr. Josh Friedman of Integrative Psychotherapy of Omaha



"The Organic Acids Test has brought new meaning to my specialized practice in women's health. This test has allowed me to investigate more deeply the chronic issues that contribute to female related conditions like PMS, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, chronic UTIs and vulvodynia. I have had a great deal of success in treating complicated PMS cases that didn't respond to typical female hormone balancing therapies. Since utilizing the OAT, it has provided me with a variety of information to determine the underlying cause of female related issues. Some of the markers that I find valuable for women's health issues are the bacterial and yeast metabolites, oxalates, B vitamins, vitamin C, and pyroglutamic acid. I have been so impressed by this test that I can't help but want to spread the word about its uses for various women's health conditions!"

–Jennifer, N.D.
