Report OAT Test Back, Need some help? in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted December 22, 2008 I am just responding now finally because one of my daughters has had the stomach flu. She does not have tics but she has been very sick. I really hope my son does not get it because whenever he gets sick his tics increase. Faith, An OAt Test is the Organic Acid Test. It is a Metabolic Organic Acid Testing. It gives guidance to specific Vitamin, mineral and amino Acid needs. Relative to health status, genetic tendencies,aging and oxidative Status. It gives metabolic markers of cellular functioning, energy production, neurotransmitter metabolism, nutrient deficiencies,and intestinal dysbiosis. I got it done because my son was found to have an Egg intolerance. So, I wanted to know if he was deficient in any vitamins. The test costs $269.00. I am glad I got it, however it still is a little confusing on the B vitamins. My son takes TS-Plus control and it has B vitamins in it. From the suggestions of the OAT test, I guess he needs some more B vitamins and I guess he's not Absorbing them properly. I think maybe because it said he has a cloistral, protanzo infection in his intestines. I have to try to get rid of that. I have been reading that Clostridial can cause tics. I have also been reading that it's hard to get rid of. But I have to try. I got the test done by Met. they send it to US BIO TEK LABS. The website is www.vrp.com. In the TS-plus there is 50 mg of Pathothione Acid, from the OAT test it suggested giving my son 250mg. The OAT test suggested also to give my son B1 25mg, Vitamin B12 1000mcg. In the TS-Plus he already gets that much B1 but not that much vitamin B12. As for how my son is doing, his tics are alot milder than before I started all these supplements and the diet changes,( no egg, artificial colorings or favors, preservatives, and NO MSG). He is always a little fiditey, when trying to sit still but nothing like when I gave him the Vitamin B 12 with cherry favor and the wild Oregano. He was so Hyper, Jumping on furniture, really bothering my other kids and screaming alot. I have not seen him like this in along time. He always has some what of a focus problem. That has never really changed and he really hates big crowds he always hast to be next to me or my husband or he hides.Whenever he watches T.V. he always turns his head to one side and wathes like that. MY family is used to him doing that. How is your son doing? Chemar, Thanks so much for your suggestions!!! I will try the Monolaurin for my son because I think the wild of oregano is to strong for him. I will also try the Milk Thistle for his liver. I think your right the Cherry flavor might be the problem in the vitamin B12. Caryn, My son had a IGG test and it said he has a intolerance to eggs. Can children have a wheat intolerance even though it did not show up on the IGG because I always have thought my son does not do well when he eats lots of wheat or gluten. Any thoughts? Thanks again to the helpful suggestions, I have really been very stressed.
