The Organic Acids Test (OAT) by Great Plains provides a snapshot of a patient’s overall health and measures over 70 markers/metabolites that your body discards in the urine. It offers an evaluation of gut health via intestinal yeast and bacteria. If these microorganisms are at abnormally high levels, it can indicate dysfunction and may worsen fatigue, behavior disorders, movement disorders, and immune function. The typical causes of high levels include long-term antibiotic treatment, poor diet, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors.
The test also includes markers for nutrient deficiencies, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and is currently the only OAT to include markers for oxalates, which are highly associated with many chronic illnesses.
This simple, at-home urine test can be a key player in treatment for depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, recurrent infections, behavioral problems, leaky gut, and inflammatory bowel disease– to name a few.
If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatment can include dietary modification or supplements, such as vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and antioxidants. If you are battling chronic issues, we can use the OAT results to develop an individualized treatment plan to get you back on track to better health.
