    Organic acids are by-products of the various chemical reactions that occur in our bodies. These acids are created from metabolic processes such as the digestion of proteins or fats. They are utilised for energy generation and provide the necessary building blocks for cell functioning.

    You might excrete some proportions of these organic acids through the urine. So, examining this acid concentration can provide information on vitamin deficiency, like vitamin B12 and biotin.

    If there is an overgrowth of bacteria and yeast in the intestinal tract, examining the organic acids can help shed more light on the same. Overgrowth of bacteria in the intestine can lead to multiple symptoms such as:

    • Sudden loss of appetite 
    • Abnormal weight loss 
    • Malnutrition 
    • Diarrhoea 
    • Bloating and digestive issues 
    • Nausea 
    • Abdominal pain and discomfort

    You must consult a physician if the symptoms persist for an extended period. Doctors conduct an Organic Acid Quantitative Urine Random test to detect such abnormalities and symptoms.

    The Organic Acid Quantitative Urine Random test can detect bacterial by-products in the intestine. As these microorganisms can modify the metabolism of neurotransmitters, the test analyses the bacteria to prevent complications.

    In addition, the urine test can detect symptoms of yeast overgrowth in your intestine. Such as:

    • Vomiting and nausea 
    • Abdominal pain 
    • Tiredness and fatigue 
    • Diarrhoea 
    • Reduced appetite 
    • Bloating 
    • Fever

    Moreover, the organic acid testing procedure can help patients suffering from inflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction, and digestive imbalances. The test can also help medical experts understand the inherited disorders affecting metabolic pathways.

    By examining the urine sample, doctors can evaluate if specific chemical reactions have led to the excessive acid concentration. As these acidic concentrations can be harmful, the examination can help minimise the symptoms.

    The test is conducted using a urine sample. So, it benefits patients who cannot visit a clinic. In addition, if collecting a blood sample is difficult, this urine test is an ideal alternative.

    During the procedure, you will be asked to provide a sample of the first morning void. Then, the doctors will send the sample to the lab for further examination. Afterwards, the medical professionals will analyse the presence of organic compounds and the overgrowth of bacteria.

    The Organic Acid Quantitative Urine Random test can also detect inborn metabolism complications. One of the main reasons for conducting this test is to identify organic acid complications among newborns.

    The organic acid testing procedure provides doctors with a better insight into the enzymatic problems at the cellular level. In addition, the test can be beneficial in detecting gut microbiome alterations, neurotransmitter levels and fungus or mould exposures.

    If you are unsure of your metabolic health and suffering from vitamin deficiencies, this test is ideal for you. Apollo 24|7 offers an all-inclusive Quantitative Urine Random test package to help you in this regard.

    faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Frequently asked questions

    The Organic Acid Quantitative Urine Random test focuses on your metabolism in the last 12 to 48 hours. As your kidneys filter blood at a speed of 120 mL per minute, the time frame is short. So, the test detects organic acids that might have been formed due to metabolic processes 12-48 hours before the test.
    The doctor might instruct you to avoid certain foods before the urine test that can affect the results. These can include apples, raisins, grapes, cranberries and pears. You can discuss your current diet plan with the doctor before the test for more clarification.
    Organic acid disorders can affect your body's metabolism rate. They hamper the way your digestive system breaks down food to create energy. Moreover, they can affect the digestive process of newborn babies leading to the buildup of acid in their urine. The Organic Acid Quantitative Urine Random test can help doctors diagnose and treat such complications.
    The organic acid test detects inborn complications in acid metabolism and mitochondrial respiratory chain defects. It can also diagnose urea cycle diseases.
    Before the test, you must talk to your doctor about the medications you are currently consuming. Also, talk about any pre-existing allergies and health complications. If you have diabetes, you must avoid having sweet dishes before the test.
    The test requires a first morning void as the urine sample because the urine is more concentrated when you wake up. Hence, it can help the doctor detect abnormalities and the presence of organic acids.
