Bone Metabolism

A blood test for calcium and phosphorus is used to monitor musculoskeletal health. However, out-of-normal-range readings can indicate a number of further underlying health conditions such as with the heart and kidneys.

Parasitic infestation of the gut is common in Asia and can cause long term health problems even in the absence of symptoms. A stool sample is examined for the presence of intestinal parasites and their eggs.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D (25 hydroxycalciferol), total

Test for assessing vitamin D status. While Vitamin D can be obtained from the sun, food or supplements, deficiency in vitamin D is a relatively common issue. A primary role played by vitamin D in the body is to maintain levels of calcium and phosphorus within the normal range. Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium, which is important for forming and maintaining strong bones. Osteomalacia (softening of bones), osteoporosis and rickets are bone diseases associated with deficiency in vitamin D, while low levels of this vitamin have also been associated with high blood pressure, coronary disease, muscle weakness, cancer and diabetes.

Calcium
Calcium

Calcium is the primary component of bone, and is primarily found there in mineral form. Hypercalcemia is a condition where the level of calcium in your bloodstream is found to be above normal. A constant level of calcium is required for some vital body processes to function efficiently. Too much calcium in your blood can lessen bone strength, result in kidney stones, and impact the function of your heart and brain.

Phosphorous
Phosphorous

Phosphorus levels are closely related to calcium levels. Phosphorus combines with calcium to form calcium phosphate, which is a component of calcium in bone. Its determination in blood helps to understand the calcium content of bone and their health. Close to 90% of the phosphorus in the body is found in our bones in the form of hydroxyapatite. As well as helping to indicate musculoskeletal health, registering low or high levels of phosphorus in your bloodstream can indicate a number of health conditions including kidney disorders.
