Organic Acids Test (The Great Plains Laboratory)

5-Hydroxymethyl-2-furoic (female)

A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 14 mmol/mol creatinine.

Several of the markers on the OAT indicate mold colonizing the gut.

5-Hydroxymethyl-2-furoic (2nd marker on the test) and Furan 2,5-dicarboxylic (4th marker on the test) are byproducts of Aspergillus and other fungal species. This can indicate that Aspergillus mold from food or water damage is growing in the digestive system. Elevations in Furancarbonylglycine can also indicate mold (5th marker on the test).

These markers are important because Aspergillus produces a specific mycotoxin called aflatoxin which is a carcinogen (R). These mycotoxins are also damaging to the kidneys and liver. The presence of mold can suppress immune function in the gut increasing susceptibility to other microbial overgrowths.
