DESCRIPTION:

The Osteoporosis Risk Panel includes ten different tests that evaluate your risk for osteoporosis – a debilitating disease that causes bones to become more fragile.

Calcium and Vitamin D play a large part in diagnosing osteoporosis.  If you are deficient in these minerals, this panel will tell you.  The other tests help make the panel more comprehensive and give you and your physician a better evaluation of your bones and how your body processes the minerals needed to create bone.

WHY DO I NEED TO BE SCREENED FOR OSTEOPOROSIS?

People with osteoporosis are typically older females with a small or thin body frame and have a diet low in calcium (but high in protein, sodium and caffeine).

If you experience loss of height or a broken bone, or if you have a history of smoking, alcohol abuse and a lack of exercise, you might want to consider this panel.

OTHER RELEVANT LAB TESTS:

If you’re interested in the Osteoporosis Risk Panel, you might also want to consider the Annual Check‐UpMenopause Screening Panel or the Comprehensive Male or Female Panel.

 

WHAT IF MY LAB TEST RESULTS ARE ABNORMAL OR OUT OF RANGE?

You should see your primary care physician.
