OAT Basics and Biochemistry


This OAT review will include a review of the biochemistry that helps to inform the metabolites on the GPL OAT test. It is designed to be understandable for those who have not taken biochemistry but do have a strong biology background. We will discuss the relevance of each aspect of the test. Following this, we will review some abnormal results to help enhance critical thinking. There will be a question and answer section in between each major section.

Jessica Bonovich has worked with The Great Plains Laboratory for close to 10 years. In addition to her nursing degree, she has multiple certifications ranging from biochemistry to pain management. Her intention is to guide patients and practitioners through test results in a succinct and thoughtful manner. During her consultations, she will incorporate all available research with a practical application of the known biochemical pathways to interpret results. She wants patients and practitioners alike to feel empowered with the knowledge required to achieve their goals. She considers it a privilege to be part of the journey.
