Bone Loss Test | Deoxpyridionline and Pyridinium Crosslinks
This bone loss test is a simple urinary test that identifies the rate of bone loss. The test helps identify those more likely to develop osteoporosis and to intervene before significant bone loss happens. It examines pyridinium crosslinks and deoxypyridinoline and is useful in identifying current rate of bone loss and helping develop treatment plans.
Deoxpyridionline and Pyridinium Crosslinks
Pyridinium crosslinks are stabilizers of collagen in bones. Bone collagen contains both pyridinoline (PYD), which is reflective of collagen loss of all types, and its component deoxypyridinoline (DPD), which specifically reflects bone collagen. Higher than normal amounts of PYD and DPD indicate a rapid rate of bone loss.

comments: Excited to be able to order an OAT without a dr order
comments: Your customer service is excellent - responsive and goes the extra mile. Worked with Rachel, who was terrific. The website lagged a lot, but may be new year's eve traffic. Also, a coupon supposed to expire on 1/1/22 did not work when ordered on 12/31/21. Overall however, your service and availability of labs, which is most important, is excellent.
