WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL LAB TESTING?
Functional lab testing evaluates root cause mechanisms like nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, stealth infections, and toxicity
The FDA-approved GI-MAP test by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory was designed to detect intestinal microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness. The test is also an important indicator of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.
Organic Acid Test
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. Accumulation of specific organic acids in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. This abnormality may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect. An organic acids urine test helps reveal activity and changes at the metabolic level, helping practitioners discover hidden issues and pinpoint where therapeutic focus is needed.
