New Organic Acid Tests Added to the DUTCH™ Test
Precision Analytical, Inc., a functional medicine specialty lab, launches six (6) organic acid tests (OATs)
Four of the six OATs build up in the urine when there is a vitamin or nutrient deficiency. Specifically, xanthurenate, kynurenate, methylmalonate and pyroglutamate elevations serve as markers for vitamin B6, B12 and glutathione deficiencies, respectively. In addition, two neurotransmitter metabolites are included to give insight into the production of dopamine and epinephrine (adrenaline). These two neurotransmitter metabolites will offer insights into symptoms such as mood disorders and fatigue.
Precision Analytical’s Medical Director, Dr. Carrie Jones explains, "The organic acid tests included on all DUTCH Complete™ and DUTCH Plus™ panels allows for a better, more personalized treatment approach because they offer even more insight into the hormone results. There is significant interdependence between hormones and the OATs added to these panels, and the combination of the two tests together makes for a powerful clinical tool.”

The additional information will give practitioners an even more comprehensive understanding into the hormone and adrenal picture, especially when it comes to commonly reported symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, depression, motivation, sex drive, estrogen dominance and stress. These symptoms may be influenced by dysfunction in the patient’s hormones or organic acids. These new markers make DUTCH testing the most comprehensive overview of patient-health available in one test bringing together two formerly independent clinical laboratory tests.
