The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers the most complete and accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. These factors are of critical importance in neurological,gastrointestinal, and movement disorders. Abnormal toxic metabolites of these
microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, affect energy levels and immune function. Yeast can attach to the intestinal wall causing “leaky gut” syndrome, which can cause or magnify
food allergies, impede absorption of vitamins and minerals, and cause intestinal disorders. Many people with chronic illness, allergic conditions, and neurological disorders often have one or more abnormal levels of organic acids in their system.
Factors which can cause or affect the intestinal yeast overgrowth include oral antibiotic use, excessive sugars in the diet, selective or combined immune deficiencies, genetic and other factors.
