Nutritional Metabolism Test
Check For 36 Organic Acids With An Easy-To-Use At-Home Test Kit
Nutritional Metabolism Test
Our nutritional metabolism test measures the levels of various organic acids in the urine. Organic acids are byproducts of metabolism that are produced when the body breaks down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. This test measures organic acids including citrate acid, pyruvic acid, and lactic acid. The levels of these and other organic acids in the urine can be used to help identify underlying metabolic imbalances or disorders. For example, high levels of certain organic acids in the urine may indicate a deficiency in certain enzymes or nutrients, or the presence of certain health conditions. The organic acids test can be useful in identifying the cause of certain symptoms, such as fatigue or digestive problems, and in determining the most appropriate treatment plan.
