Bone profile blood test evaluates and calculates the blood's enzymes, proteins and minerals to give information on bone health. This test assesses the overall health of the bones.
Healthy and strong bones are important for your movement, posture and overall health. However, the bones gradually weaken as we grow older. This makes it important for older adults to undergo bone profile tests.
Besides overall health, a bone profile test aids in assessing specific health issues such as:
The bones consist of collagen, a protein that strengthens the bone structure, alongside calcium phosphate, a mineralised complex that makes the bone stronger. Bone markers in the blood indicate bone health and are used to test bone density. The test diagnoses bone diseases like osteoporosis and other bone issues.
Your doctor can assess your general health and metabolic process with a bone profile blood test. As we grow older, bone strength weakens due to conditions such as osteoporosis.
A bone profile blood test assesses various conditions and diseases, including those not directly to the bone. The essential minerals measured in a blood profile test include the following.
A bone profile blood test also measures urea, globulin and total proteins.
