The Microbial Organic Acid Test (MOAT) is a first morning urine collection that measures the organic acids produced as a by-product of yeast/fungal or bacterial infection in the gut. Quantitative levels of these organic acids in the MOAT report can aid in the clinical workup of non-specific gastrointestinal complaints.
The NTx (N-telopeptide) test is a second morning urine collection that measures the degree of bone remodeling or bone turnover. While not a measurement of bone density, the NTx test can be a useful clinical tool to monitor a bone health treatment plan (osteopenia, osteoporosis) in complement to an annual DEXA scan.
