Why is this test important?
Bone tissues are continually regenerated in a process called bone turnover. During childhood bone formation exceeds bone resorption resulting in growth. However, around age 30, resorption exceeds formation, and normal bone loss occurs. N-Telopeptide (NTx) is a byproduct of the bone resorption process found in blood and urine and can be used to measure bone loss.
Who should be tested?
The N-Telopeptide (NTx) Osteoporosis Test can be used to assess bone health in menopausal or post menopausal women and those with a family history or risk factors for osteoporosis. This test may also be used to establish a baseline before starting osteoporosis therapy, and again 3 to 6 months later to determine response to treatment.
What does the test include?
This test examines the NTx level in the blood.
