Osteoporosis risk analysis

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes a decrease in bone density and an increased risk of bone fractures. Symptoms do not usually occur until there is a rupture, mainly in vertebrae or in the hip. Although it can affect anyone, it is very common in women over 60 years old.

The factors that influence its appearance are several, intervening the genetics up to 80%. Knowing the risk factor from an early age, allows to prevent osteoporosis by providing adequate diet and lifestyle, as well as introducing the help of medicines as soon as necessary.

  1. What are these tests?

    They are tests that study our genetic material (DNA) present in oral cells, which detect polymorphisms (genetic variants) in genes associated with osteoporosis.

  2. Who are they targeting?

    This test is especially indicated to:

    • People with a family background of osteoporosis

    • Women, regardless of age

    • Men with prolonged corticoid treatment or prolonged immobilization

  3. What can they contribute to my daily life?

    Osteoporosis is a disease that if detected at an advanced stage has a high impact on the development of activities of daily living.

    The study of the genes related to osteoporosis allows to know the risk of suffering it long before its appearance. In this way, a medical specialist will be able to monitor the bone density of the patient properly and give him pharmacological treatment on time.

  4. How is the sample taken?

    You will receive at your home by courier a sample collection kit with very easy to follow instructions and with an informed consent that you must sign. The sampling is very simple, quick and painless. You only have to maintain the precautions that are detailed in the kit. Once made and previous notice, a courier will come at your home to pick it up and take it directly to the laboratory for analysis.
