Why Great Plains Lab Organic Acids Test?
The Organic Acids Test is the most comprehensive available for an insight into a wide variety of metabolic pathways, with exclusive markers including those for HPHPA and oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses. The OAT includes 74 markers, such as those for yeast and bacteria overgrowth, inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, gastrointestinal dysbiosis, and nutritional imbalances. Folate metabolism markers (also found in the OAT) are gaining considerable interest in the autism community, showing that treatment of the MTHFR metabolic pathway can lead to significant reduction in autistic symptoms.
Why The Great Plains GPL-Tox?
Every day, we are exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals through products like pharmaceuticals, pesticides, packaged foods, household products, and environmental pollution.
Because exposure to environmental pollutants has been linked to many chronic diseases, The Great Plains Laboratory has created GPL-TOX, a toxic non-metal chemical profile that screens for the presence of 172 different toxic chemicals including organophosphate pesticides, phthalates, benzene, xylene, vinyl chloride, pyrethroid insecticides, acrylamide, perchlorate, diphenyl phosphate, ethylene oxide, acrylonitrile, and more.
