Bone Health Panel (BHP)

Aging is inevitable, and bone reflects the aging process by exhibiting gradual loss of mass. In susceptible individuals, this can cause osteopenia and eventually osteoporosis. Bone metabolism is a continuous, delicate process of balancing ongoing deposition and breakdown. Hormonal balance, nutrition, lifestyle, and genetics are all contributing factors in bone metabolism.

The Bone Health Panel (BHP) provides measurements of six key hormones in saliva—progesterone, estradiol, testosterone, cortisol, follicle stimulating hormone, and DHEA—as well as the bone marker DPD in urine for a comprehensive patient report presented in an easy-to-read, customized format.
