The DiagnosTechs Bone Health Panel measures 6 different hormones through saliva, as well as a key bone biomarker in urine to asses the health of your bones thus minimizing loss of density and preventing fractures.
The Bone Health Panel uses convenient, noninvasive testing of your saliva to evaluate estrogen (estradiol), progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, and follicle stimulating hormone. In tandem, we measure Pyrilinks-D from urine, which is a sensitive indicator of bone loss and provides valuable information about your bone health. The biomarkers assessed by the Bone Health Panel provide valuable data for patients who may be at risk for osteopenia or osteoporosis.
Additionally, the Bone Health Panel offers an objective way to monitor the efficacy of bone loss treatment strategies including correction of hormonal abnormalities, vitamin and mineral supplementation, dietary and lifestyle changes, and/or pharmacologic interventions. Our Bone Health Panel can detect decreases in bone density at an early stage allowing intervention before acute symptoms appear, and in contrast to traditional screening, our panel is noninvasive and does not involve x-ray radiation or blood draws.
Why use our Bone Health Panel?
In saliva, the active (free) form of each hormone is measured
