Bone profile blood test in London

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.

Why is a bone profile test necessary

Why is a bone profile test necessary?

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:

  • Osteoporosis
    Osteoporosis affects about three million people living in the UK. This condition makes the bone fragile and more likely to break. As you grow older, the bone loses density, but osteoporosis may result from hormonal issues, eating disorders and excessive drinking.
  • Paget's disease
    This disease affects bone renewal. This is the way bone tissues regenerate. If your doctor suspects Paget's disease, the doctor will order vitamin D and bone profile tests.
  • Bone cancer
    Bone cancer is rare cancer characterised by lumps, bone pain, swelling and bone breakage.
  • Thyroid problems and liver disease
    A bone profile may aid in diagnosing thyroid and parathyroid problems. The parathyroid and thyroid gland plays a vital role in maintaining the calcium-phosphorus balance. The test may also detect liver problems where certain enzymes and proteins are produced.

What does a bone profile test show?

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.

What is a bone profile test?

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.

  • Calcium
    A bone profile test calculates the amount of calcium in the blood. Calcium is an essential mineral that supports bone health. The normal calcium level is 2.2 – 2.6 mmol/L.
  • Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
    ALP is found in the bone cells and liver. Assessing the ALP levels aids in bone disorders and liver disease. The normal range of ALP for adults is 30 – 130u/L.
  • Albumin
    Protein synthesis occurs in the liver, but low albumin levels indicate lower bone density. Albumin test aids in osteoporosis diagnosis. The normal range of albumin is 35 – 50g/L.

A bone profile blood test also measures urea, globulin and total proteins.
