Metabolic Profile

Find out if your body is functioning well

Metabolism – The Indicator to Your Health

Metabolism is the set of chemical transformations at the cellular level of organisms, allows organisms to grow, reproduce, repair, and respond to their environments.


Organic acids are compounds produced within the body during metabolism when different organic acids are synthesized and broken down.


Are those symptoms the sign of poor metabolism?

• Fatigue
• Weight gain
• Joint pain
• Dermatitis
• Headaches

• Sleep  abnormalities
• Nausea
• Gas
• Depression
• Early aging

• Mood changes
• Multiple chemical sensitivity
• Reflux
• Anxiety

• Blood sugar dysregulation
• Bloating, Distention
• Autoimmune disorders
• Inflammation

Let’s do a quick test to see your metabolic efficiency!

Why using urine testing?

A first morning urine sample on our signature dried urine card is required to profile the organic acid levels. Liquid urine has poor stability, as degraded after sampling, and the freeze-thaw cycle between transportation may discourage the quality of urine sample. Dried urine card ensure sample stability in storage and transportation even in room temperature conditions up to 14 days whereas refrigerated conditions up to 90 days.

Our dried urine card were validated to provide almost 100% of the liquid urine value (r² of 0.997), with great stability and recovery of the analytes.

HK BioTek Technology Competence

•    Sample will be sent to our laboratories in the United States for analysis employing the advanced approach: Liquid Chromatography/ Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry platform (LC-MS MS). 
•    This method measures chemical markers even at a low level for optimum test results.
•    One repeated testing will be done for each sample in order to achieve the highest accuracy.

Test Items

Measures the level of 36 organic acids from your small amount of morning urine sample.

36 organic acids are categorized into 8 groups (as in the table below), access different stages of metabolism.


Provide a comprehensive picture of your metabolic performance, with a glimpse into each bodily function addressed by the individual groups

User Testimonials


Functional Medicine Practitioner, Central, Hong Kong

“The test gives an overview of several major systems and an analysis of nutritional deficiencies in the body. Many of my patients found it very convenient to collect the urine sample with the sampling strips from HK BioTek. The result provides the most useful data for actionable follow ups for my patients and my anti-aging and functional medicine practice.”

More energy and better concentration

Amanda, Hong Kong

“I watched my diet and workout regularly but somehow my fatigue has never gone away. At the very beginning, I thought it is just the thing for people in their 40s. After referred by a close friend and got tested, I know my problem may come from the way my body makes energy! Followed the health supplements plan listed on the report for 2 months, I feel much better – more energy and better concentration during the day, sleep better plus I have lose some weight! This is because the report has pointed out if I am lacking key nutrients that turn fat into energy.”

Improved Digestion

Ms Yang, Shenzhen

“I did this test with an Environmental Pollutant test. I spend most of my time in China and I do have concerns how my body is ‘polluted’ by the environment, and want to do something before it is too late. Plus I am struggling with my weight and digestive system. So I want to see if there is any underlying cause for these problem. After the test and followed the instruction on the report to detox and supplement what is lacking, I feel the symptoms improve a lot.”


Edward, Trainer, Hong Kong

“I ordered this test for my client to optimize their performance as it can help to identify missing vitamins and nutrients for better performance and outcome of losing weight. This test is particularly impressive and useful. The staff at HK BioTek has been very attentive and supportive on the sample logistics and result interpretation. Thanks HK BioTek!”
