The Best Medical Tests To Evaluate Bone Health & Osteoporosis
Some of the best lab tests to have your doctor are:
1. Deoxypyridinoline
2. Pyridinium crosslinks
3. Vitamin and Mineral status – especially measuring intracellular calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin D, boron, manganese…as these nutrients are essential for healthy bone growth and regeneration.
4. X-ray can be used though the accuracy is only there in late stage or severe bone loss.
Keep in mind that a dexa scan is limited in capacity to determine bone health, and should only be used to help to determine overall bone status. Bone density is dependent on several factors to include the proper nutrition, exercise, sunshine, sleep, and stress management.
If you have gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, you are at greater risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis due to malabsorption.
