Clinical Utility

The Microbial Organic Acids Test (MOAT) is included in the Organic Acids Test (OAT) and indicates the metabolites produced by yeast and bacteria. Elevated test values are related to yeast or bacterial dysbiosis.
This test reports 21 metabolites (including creatinine), such as markers for beneficial bacteria, harmful bacteria, Clostridia species, Candida species, yeast and fungal metabolites, and general markers of dysbiosis.
The MOAT is ideal for follow-up to the OAT and may be recommended for a specific abnormality, to monitor certain microbial balances, or to assess treatment efficacy. The full OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test.
