In my own clinical practice, my first priority is to change my patient’s diet and lifestyle behaviors. If additional testing is needed, the results from an Organic Acids Test (OAT) from The Great Plains Laboratory can be helpful to dive deeper into their chronic health disorder.

With exclusive markers for HPHPA and oxalates, our OAT includes 74 markers correlated with many chronic illnesses such as those for:

 The Organic Acids Test is an excellent assessment to use for patients with: 

  • Gastrointestinal Dysbiosis 
  • Inflammation 
  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction 
  • Oxidative Stress 
  • Nutritional Imbalances 
  • Yeast and Bacterial Overgrowth  

Whether you are a family practitioner, internist, neurologist, pediatrician, psychiatrist, or nutritionist, the information from the OAT can be applied to any practice. The OAT provides a comprehensive and accurate snapshot of your patient’s metabolism. If you’re looking for new ways to help patients with difficult-to-diagnose and chronic health disorders, the OAT will be an incredibly valuable tool for your practice. They also provide free consultations with your test results.
