The bone chemistry profile panel is a set of tests that evaluate bone health by analyzing the proteins, enzymes, and minerals present in the bones. It typically includes tests for calcium, phosphate, albumin, and alkaline phosphatase, which are essential for healthy bone structure and development.
Indications of the Test
This panel is used to monitor bone conditions and diseases, such as osteoporosis, and to assess the risk of bone cancers. By measuring important components such as calcium, phosphate, albumin, and alkaline phosphatase, it provides crucial information about bone health.
No special preparation is usually required for a bone chemistry profile panel. However, it’s always best to follow any specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider or the testing facility.
Typical Reference Values
The reference values for the components measured in a bone chemistry profile panel may vary by specific laboratory. For example, the normal levels of calcium are typically in the range of 2.2-2.6 mmol/L, while the normal range for albumin is 35-50 g/L.
The turnaround time for the bone chemistry profile panel is usually relatively quick, with results often available on the same day, particularly for urgent samples.
