Accelerated bone loss affects more than 44 million
Americans 50 years of age and older. 80% of them are women. But men, younger women and otherwise healthy, active
individuals can also experience the dangerous thinning and weakening of bones known as
Bone Density = Formation -
Bone is a very active tissue undergoing constant "remodeling,"
a process of formation and resorption (breakdown). Osteoporosis, a loss of bone density,
occurs when the resorption rate is greater than the rate of formation of new bone.
Since bone formation is difficult to assess, it is important to identify if you are among the men and women with
rapid bone breakdown. If you are, you have the greatest risk for osteoporosis.
On a positive note, you are also among the group who can benefit most from therapies that your clinician might
Fortunately, there is a test that can show if
you are at risk.
A series of bone scans can be expensive and can only indicate
changes in your bones over a six to twelve month period. They do not show your current bone activity.
The Bone Resorption Assay detects biochemical markers which reflect present remodeling activity. This test is
simple and cost-effective, allowing you to routinely monitor bone resorption rates and the effectiveness of
Repeated measurements will allow your healthcare practitioner to monitor the effectiveness of your therapeutic
interventions so you can achieve the most
benefit in the shortest time.
Osteoporosis is a major public
threat for an estimated 44 million Americans.
In the US today, 10 million (8 million being
women and 2 million being men) individuals are estimated to already have the disease and
almost 34 million more are estimated to have
low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis." - National Osteoporosis Foundation
