What is a bone profile test?

Bone profile checks different diseases and conditions related to your bones. It measures the level of essential minerals in blood responsible for bone health such as:

  • Calcium- It measures the level of calcium in blood. The normal range is 2.2-2.6 mmol/L that promotes bone health.
  • Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)- It is present in liver and bone cells and a drop in the level can lead to liver disease and bone disorders. The usual range in adults is 30-120u/L.
  • Albumin- Low albumin will reduce the density of bone as protein synthesises in the liver. The normal range is 35 – 50g/L.

A bone profile assists in measuring total proteins, globulin and urea too.

Bone profile blood test acts as bone marker to find out the presence of collagen, protein assists in making the bone stronger along with calcium phosphate. Accordingly, doctor can diagnose your bone health and density and detect conditions such as osteoporosis.  This may be helpful for people of advanced age as bone structure begins to weaken down.
