Organic Acids Test + Microbiology Test

GENERAL

This combo panel includes three tests for the presence of yeast. The Organic Acids Test measures yeast metabolites in the urine. In the Microbiology Test, a culture is grown and the stool sample is examined under the microscope. If the yeast grows in culture, sensitivity of that yeast to prescription antifungals and to natural antimicrobials is determined. This information is valuable in directing therapy for yeast overgrowth.

THIS PANEL INCLUDES

  • Organic Acids Test (OAT)
  • Microbiology Test
  • Microscopic Yeast Evaluation
  • Sensitivity to prescriptive/natural agents

CLINICAL USEFULNESS:

  • More information for weighing yeast treatment options
  • Find out which type of anti-fungal will work best
  • Discount for ordering both tests together
  • Consultation concerning results is included with each test at The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc.

TREATMENT OPTIONS:

  • Diet modification

"I like the work of The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc., and the book and conferences by Dr. Shaw. I have sent samples of my patients (names omitted) for detection of organic acids and morphine peptides in urine and now they are improving greatly with the results you have recommended."
