Optimal Result: 0 - 0.33 mmol/mol creatinine.

3-Oxoglutaric acid is also known as Acetonedicarboxylic acid. The presence of 3-Oxoglutaric acid in human urine can be used as a diagnostic test for the overgrowth of harmful gut flora such as Candida albicans. Candida albicans is the most common form of yeast in the body. Candida can build up toxins that contribute to fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, brain fog, depression, and other symptoms. When Candida becomes invasive, it attaches to the intestinal wall causing leaky gut. This can result in food sensitivities, nutrient malabsorption, and intestinal disorders.

What does it mean if your 3-Oxoglutaric result is too high?

- Indicates a possible yeast overgrowth in the GI tract.

- High-potency, multi-strain probiotics may help rebalance GI flora.
