This test kit measures the normal bone building vs breaking down rate (via a peptide by-product of bone breakdown) resulting in loss of bone density (osteopenia and osteoporosis) and bone mass. This test can also be used as an indicator of how well a specific intervention is on halting/reversing bone density loss. This version of the test is a kit with which you can conveniently collect at home and ship directly back to the laboratory via an included prepaid FedEx envelope. This test can be repeated every 4 months, unlike a DEXA bone density scan
which is typically every 2 years.
Purchase price includes pre-paid shipping and return shipping, test kit, and lab fees
