Bone-Specific Alkaline Phosphatase

Bone-Specific Alkaline Phosphatase

Bone loss is a condition which occurs as a result of an imbalance between bone re-absorption (disappearance) and bone formation. Osteoporosis is characterized by a reduction of bone mass and integrity making people more susceptible to fractures. Osteoporosis generally occurs with increasing age and in post-menopausal women. Bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (bone ALP) is a useful marker of active bone formation. Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
