OAT or Organic Acids Test
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers. The following categories of testing is included in the OAT test
- It is a urine test that tests for yeast and bacterial markers from the digestive system
- Tests for mitochondrial markers such as Kreb or Citric Acid cycle markers
- Tests for neurotransmitters such as serotonin, adrenaline and dopamine
- Tests for inflammatory markers such as oxalate, and salicylates
- Tests for detoxification markers such as glutathione status
- Tests for some nutrients such as B1, B2, B5, B6, Coenzymes Q10, NAC and biotin.

Yeast and bacterial markers cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.
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.
