Description

Urine organic acid testing is useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with inborn errors of organic acid metabolism, inborn errors of amino acid metabolism, urea cycle defects, and defects of the mitochondrial respiratory chain.

Organic acids are compounds produced within the body in the course of metabolism. Metabolism is the totality of biochemical reactions taking place to “run” your body. Organic acid analysis gives us insight into our metabolism. Our state of metabolism determines our state of health and is the result of an interplay of our genes, thoughts, beliefs, diet, lifestyle and other environmental factors.
