Thyrocare Bone Profile M includes tests:
25 OH Vitamin D: Vitamin D deficiency can cause several disorders like osteoporosis, sclerosis, bone fragility, hypertension, chronic fatigue, depression, heart diseases, diabetes and cancers: thus detecting its level is crucial.
Intact Parathyroid Hormone (PTH): PTH is considered as a bone catabolic agent, and is known to stimulate bone growth. It enhances the release of calcium and indirectly stimulates bone resorption. Also, PTH aids in fractute healing and stimulates the production of active vitamin D in kidneys.
Calcium: Calcium test is done to screen for diagnosis and monitor a range of conditions related to the bones, like osteomalacia, osteoporosis, rickets and paget's disease.
Phosphorus: Phosphorus is another most important element vital for body's physiological processes such as, bone growth. About 85% of the body's phosphorus is located in bones and teeth. Too high or too low levels of phosphorus leads to numerous bone health issues, thus its detection is essential.
Alkaline Phosphatase: Alkaline phosphatase's main role in the body is to help break down proteins. However alkaline phosphatase is also found on the surface of osteoblasts (cells that synthesise bone cells). It therefore shown as a sensitive and reliable indicator of bone metabolism. Conditions like paget disease and osteomalacia show a higher concentration of alkaline phosphatase.
Serum Zinc: Zinc is one of the essential trace elements in the body and apart from its key role in protein and nucleic acid synthesis, gene expression, wound healing, as an antioxidant, Zinc is known to strengthen the bone and prevent osteoporosis, as it is crucial element for bone mineralisation. Zinc deficiency is often related to stunted growth in children because it is vital for cellular division and activation. This element is alsoneeded for proper functioning of alkaline phosphatase.
