Metabolic Profile Test Organic Acid Assessments

Organic Acids – Metabolic Profile
The organic acids test is a simple urine test that looks at markers from various metabolic pathways. Organic acids are produced in pathways of energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal bacterial activity. Accumulation of specific organic acids in urine can indicate a block or inhibition of metabolic pathways, which may be due to a nutrient or enzyme deficiency, toxic build-up or the effects of certain medications. By evaluating organic acid levels and pinpointing metabolic dysfunctions at the cellular level, a comprehensive, customised treatment strategy can be tailor-made for each individual.

Metabolic Profile Test

Metabolic Profile Test

This test is the single most comprehensive test in evaluating:

  • Citric acid cycle (energy production) abnormalities
  • B vitamin requirements
  • Neurotransmitter abnormalities
  • CoQ10 sufficiency
  • Amino acid insufficiencies
  • Intestinal  bacterial imbalance (dysbiosis)
  • Yeast overgrowth
  • 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

The markers assessed in the Metabolic Profile include:

  • Organic acids for Intestinal dysbiosis
  • Citric acid cycle metabolites  
  • Ketone/fatty acid metabolites
  • Cofactor sufficiency markers
  • Neurotransmitter metabolites
