Osteoporosis Blood Test Panel - More Info
This osteoporosis test panel, also known as an osteoporosis lab test, measures blood markers related to bone health and turnover. Specifically, this osteoporosis panel includes the alkaline phosphate test, calcium test, CTX test, NTX test, osteocalcin test, and vitamin D test.
Osteoporosis is common disease in the elderly in which weakness in the structure of the bones causes an increased risk of a fracture. Bone weakness in osteoporosis is caused by either increased bone breakdown or decreased bone creation. Bone loss in osteoporosis can be caused by chronic medical problems, medication use, smoking, lack of exercise or low estrogen (in postmenopausal women).
Lab markers tested in this osteoporosis blood panel are helpful in assessing bone turnover via blood testing. To get an osteoporosis blood test near you, order online and get your blood drawn at the selected Quest Diagnostics lab location. Once the osteoporosis panel lab results are ready, they will be available for download.
