Amino Acid Tests

Amino acids are an essential part of your health. They are the building blocks of the proteins your body needs to properly function, and they affect your energy, digestion, healing, growth, and mood. 

Amino acids are needed to build and repair muscle, absorb nutrients, produce enzymes (as well as some hormones and neurotransmitters), and carry out other vital needs. Some amino acids are made naturally by your body, while others must come from the protein of the food you eat, like meat, eggs, and soy. 

There are many types of amino acids, and each plays a different role in maintaining normal body functions. Having too much or too little amino acids can cause serious health issues. 

Amino acid lab tests check for deficiencies and imbalances by measuring key amino acids. Amino acid lab tests are used to help diagnose and monitor inherited aminoaciduria (presence of amino acids in the blood), organic acidurias (inherited metabolic disorders), and urea cycle defects.
