Diagnostic laboratory testing involves testing a sample of blood, urine, or other substance from the body to help determine a diagnosis, plan treatment or monitor progress.

Why Recommend Diagnostic Laboratory Testing?

Our diagnostic plan model involves administering an array of tests in order to look at your health comprehensively. The information is vital in creating an extensive, unique healing plan.

We utilize blood work and compounds found in your urine to understand processes that can compromise your overall health.

Organic Acid Test


Why is Blood Work Important?

Blood tests can give you and the MotlMD team a plethora of information on your body’s functioning.
Based on your presenting problems and history, MotlMD will refer out for bloodwork and order the corresponding tests to aid in getting the full picture to best help your needs.


What is an Organic Acids Test (OAT)?

Organic acids are byproducts of chemical reactions that occur in the body (and can be found in urine).

In order for the body to run effectively, it needs the proper amount of vitamins and minerals.

When the body isn’t functioning optimally, organic acids can be elevated or depleted, which we can measure with the Organic Acid Test (OAT).


The OAT provides a bigger picture that can be used to dig deeper into the root of your symptoms.

Testing can aid in identifying the following:

  • Diet deficiencies
  • Environmental toxins
  • Gut health dysbiosis
  • Disruptions in genetic conversion
  • Kidney and liver function
  • Neurotransmitter metabolism
  • Nutrient status
  • Detoxification abilities

Who Can Benefit from Diagnostic Laboratory Testing?

Diagnostic laboratory testing like blood work and Organic Acids testing may be useful for people whose symptoms haven’t been explained through other tests.

Encorporating a balanced diet, supplementing diet with vitamins and minerals, or recommending further tests can assist the path to mental wellness.

At MotlMD, we gain insight through laboratory testing that can help bring your health back to balance.
