ORGANIC ACID LAB TESTING
Organic Acid Testing can indicate the functional need for specific nutrients, diet modifications, antioxidant protection, detoxification and other therapies.
Conventional medical doctors use a complete blood count (CBC) and a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) as routine testing to help rule out health problems in their patients. Functional medicine practitioners use an Organic Acid Test to identify imbalances occurring in the body that often precede abnormal findings on a CBC or an CMP.

Organic Acids are abnormal concentrations in urine that can provide a functional marker for metabolic effects of micronutrient inadequacies, genetic polymorphisms, impaired enzyme function, toxic exposure, neuroendocrine activity and intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
