OMX | Organic Metabolomics (Urine)
Metabolomic Testing Offers Enhanced Insights
into Patient Metabolic Status
The OMX ™ Organic Metabolomics test from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory evaluates urine metabolites—including organic acids, amino acids, and other key compounds—to assist practitioners in unraveling their patient’s metabolic pathways, revealing their unique Metabolic Signature.
What is Metabolomics Testing?
Metabolomics, also called comprehensive metabolic profiling, evaluates patterns of metabolites related to core biological systems, offering insight into biochemical dysfunctions that may be of concern.
Organic acids and other small molecules are intermediate compounds that can define the efficient flow of pathways and substrates such as amino acids to reveal the level of inputs, which together establish the functional status of key areas of health.
Metabolites are impacted by many factors and can change in response to diet, nutrient status, toxin exposures, exercise, physiologic demands, genetics, gut microbiome alterations, or disease stage. Metabolic analysis can help clinicians evaluate the function of key pathways to better target support.
What Patients Can Benefit from the OMX Metabolomics Test?
Understanding an individual's metabolome, combined with their medical history and lifestyle, allows clinicians to establish a larger picture and provide support from the bottom up. Ideally, practitioners will use OMX to establish a baseline metabolic signature for healthy patients. The baseline could be used for future comparison if symptoms, disease, or illness occurs.
OMX Provides Insight Into the Following Areas of Health:
- Metabolic and macronutrient processing
- Nutritional and vitamin status
- Level and flow of amino acid
- Mood issues
- Gut concerns
- Overall well-being
- Single first morning urine specimen only.
