Amino Acid Analysis

Amino Acid Analysis allows for the identification of dietary protein adequacy and amino acid balance, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, forms of protein intolerance, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, renal and hepatic dysfunction, psychiatric abnormalities, susceptibility to inflammatory response and oxidative stress, reduced detoxification capacity and many other inherent and acquired disorders in amino acid metabolism.

This test is useful for patients who may present any of the following conditions:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Epilepsy
  • Fatigue
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility
  • Insomnia
  • Kidney Function
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

The patient’s results are presented in a functional format that permits ease of interpretation. A comprehensive summary of “presumptive needs” (such as B6, B12/folate, Mg) and “implied conditions” (such as maldigestion/malabsorption, abnormal gastrointestinal flora, impaired detoxification, oxidative stress) are presented based upon each patient’s results. Patient-specific amino acid supplement schedules and user-friendly commentary are provided by Dr. Dempster to simplify nutritional intervention.  Amino Acid Analyses consists of a simple blood test that is processed at a lab and results are then sent to our clinic.
