Bone Health (male) Test

By Forth Edge

Evidence suggests that certain forms of exercise can improve bone health. However highly trained lean male athletes, as well as those who are engaged in certain sports such as cycling, can be at risk of a reduction in their bone density.  This can lead to an increased risk of stress injuries as well as long term reductions in bone strength. It is therefore important to keep track of key bone markers to ensure your skeleton health is not compromised.

This test profile is specifically designed for male cyclists or athletes involved in frequent and intense training, who want to guard against poor bone strength and reduce the risk of injury. It includes albumin and testosterone both of which are important transporters of calcium. The profile also measures calcium and vitamin D, the latter of which can often be low due to limited and poor quality sunlight.
