Serum Calcium: This test is used to measure the levels of calcium in the blood. Low levels of calcium can indicate that you might have bone issues like osteoporosis.
Vitamin D3: It is a fat-soluble vitamin which is essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Lack of vitamin D3 can be a cause of low absorption of calcium. If the calcium levels deplete it can have a negative impact on your bon health.
Vitamin B12: Lack of vitamin B12 is associated with deteriorated bone health. When an individual is suffering from bone health issues including osteoporosis it is recommended to undergo a Vitamin B12 test. Animal foods are usually a source of vitamin B12 and your body can store vitamin B12 in the liver for several years but if you are a vegan there are chances that you may lack vitamin B12.
Physician Consultation: Along with the essential tests to determine the root cause of your deteriorating bone health, we also provide a consultation with our expert physician who can evaluate and decide the course of treatment if needed. If your tests show that you lack the necessary vitamins or calcium, the physician can prescribe supplements.
