OsteoTest | med
The extended early test of the practices
The test is unique worldwide, scientifically based and medically confirmed. The procedure provides exact measured values for determining bone density. The patient is not exposed to radiation. Used at regular intervals, you as a doctor get an overview of all relevant values in the context of osteoporosis therapy.
In addition to the evaluation of the urine, each test includes an assessment of the kidney function (creatinine, eGFR and cystatin C) and optionally the vitamin D level.
Offer your patients the OsteoTest now. Have yourself listed on our website as a proven expert and user of the new procedure for the early detection and treatment of osteoporosis. Your patients will benefit from this cooperation, as the new procedure can predict possible osteoporotic fractures in good time.

Discussion of the results with the patient
How does the analysis procedure work?
Calcium (Ca++) occurs in food in isotopes of different weights, e.g. 42Ca or 44Ca. Isotopes react chemically in the same way, but have different weights. The calcium isotopes are stable and not radioactive.
Ca isotope values in blood and serum are plotted with their corresponding mean values for diet, faeces and calculated mean value for bone. There is no statistical difference in Ca isotope levels between the two groups in relation to diet (p = 0.3) or faeces (p = 0.6). However, women suffering from DXA-diagnosed osteoporosis showed significantly lower δ44/42Ca (serum) (p = 0.001) and δ44/42Ca(urine) (p = 0.004) values than women without osteoporosis.
The 42Ca/44Ca (δ44/42Ca) ratio can be used to conclude whether bone is built up or broken down. The measurement reflects calcium build-up/loss, which can be converted into grams/day. We will add the algorithm here shortly.
Light Ca isotopes undergo chemical reactions faster than heavy ones and accumulate at the end of the process (in humans in the bone). Because light Ca isotopes react more quickly, light Ca isotopes (42Ca) are predominantly incorporated during bone formation.
If more light Ca isotopes are incorporated in the bone, more heavy Ca isotopes (44Ca) remain in the blood/urine. This can be measured with our new method. When bone substance is broken down (e.g. osteoporosis), the reverse happens. More light Ca isotopes are released from the bone into the blood/urine. This can also be measured. The graph shows the differences in the calcium isotope marker (CIM) in different materials in healthy people and people with osteoporosis.
With the new method, calcium turnover can be measured. It offers the following advantages:
Why you should include the early test in your daily practice routine:
For specialists, OsteoTest | med offers the possibility to detect the likelihood of osteoporosis at a very early stage and therapy progress. In addition, your patients will be able to see the success of their treatment for themselves.
You can offer your patients a reliable osteoporosis test, shortly after the menopause (from about 55 years of age). This is a strong argument for patients to come to your practice!
That's what our doctors say
family doctor, Kiel
"Now that there is a way to detect osteoporosis in blood and urine at an early stage, I recommend all my patients to take the osteolabs test as soon as they reach menopause. The chances of slowing down the progress of the disease increase significantly. Not all doctors know about this new test. That's why my tip is to talk to your doctor about it! By the way, I have had the experience that almost all private insurance companies will cover the costs of this test upon request."
