Why Do You Need A Bone Profile B Test?
Bone is a living tissue that is slowly but regularly replaced. During this process of bone resorption, cells that are called osteoclasts tend to dissolve bone at a microscopic level, and the enzymes start breaking down the network of collagen. This is followed by the formation of new bone by cells called osteoblasts. This natural going process is called bone remodelling or bone turnover and continues throughout a person’s life. A person’s entire skeleton is replaced about every ten years.
During childhood, bone formation proceeds at a faster rate than bone resorption and bone mass increase to peak usually by the early 20s. After this peak, bone formation slows, and resorption begins to outpace it, this results in a deficiency in bone mass with age. Vitamin D and Calcium deficiencies during childhood, the use of medications that contain high-dose glucocorticosteroids although not the usual doses are taken as inhalers to control asthma or nasal allergies, inactivity, smoking, eating disorders (e.g., anorexia), gastrointestinal surgery, and excess alcohol consumption can all increase the risk of a person developing bone disorders later in life.
Fluctuated levels of Alkaline phosphatase and calcium in the blood can justify the disorders present in the bone density in the body. It is advised to go for a bone profile B test on a regular basis so that you can know about the operation of metabolism impact of bones in the body. This will provide you with a timely reminder about the strength of bones so that if there is any precaution or medication required to maintain and provide stability to the bones for a more extended period of time as the age of the person grows.
