Organic Acid Test – OATS

The OATS test is a great way to get an overall snapshot of what’s going on in the body.  It measures the breakdown products of important nutrients and chemicals involved in digestion, gut dysbiosis, neurotransmission, detoxification, energy production, fat metabolism and methylation.  Being a urine test it is easy to do with children, collect at home and have a courier pick it up at your convenience.  

 

This test may be useful for anyone who may suffer from the following conditions:

 

AD(H)D    

Alzheimer’s Disease    

Anxiety Disorders    

Asperger’s Syndrome    

Autism Spectrum Disorders    

Chronic Fatigue    

Colitis and Crohn’s Disease    

Depression    

Down Syndrome    

Fibromyalgia    

Learning Disabilities    

Movement Disorders    

Multiple Sclerosis    

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder    

Recurrent Infections    

Tic Disorders    

Tourette Syndrome

Gastrointestinal Disorders, Diarrhea or Constipation    

OATS testing is very useful on its own, but will also complement other tests involving digestion (CDSA, FMA, lactulose), neurotransmitters, methylation panels, amino acid panels, and gene snip testing.
