The bone profile test calculates and evaluates minerals, proteins and enzymes in your blood that can provide information about the status of your bones. This blood test will help to assess the overall general state of your bones.
Having healthy, strong bones is important for posture, movement and overall wellbeing but bones will gradually weaken as we age. For this reason, older individuals are often advised to undergo this test.
Apart from your overall health, bone profiling can be used for analysing as well as assessing specific conditions such as:
Bone is made up of collagen, a kind of protein, that gives strength along with calcium phosphate, which is a kind of mineralised complex that makes the bones strong. Bone markers are the signs of bone health that may be used to conduct tests for bone density and that will identify different bone diseases such as osteoporosis or other problems with the bones.
With the help of a bone profile blood test, the metabolic processes of your body and how well they are working can be assessed. As we age, the strength of our bones weakens due to conditions like osteoporosis.
The bone profile blood test can be used to assess a wide range of diseases and conditions that are not related directly to your bones.
You will find four main minerals measured in the blood profile. The reference ranges for each of them are:
Finally, a bone profile can test for total proteins, urea and globulin.
