Osteoporosis is a condition in which our bones lose their strength and are more likely to break, usually following a minor bump or fall. Osteoporosis is sometimes called the ‘silent disease’, as there are usually no tell-tale symptoms to alert you to its presence early on in its progression. Occasionally symptoms can include gradual height loss, spinal fractures and back pain. Osteoporosis also has a direct relationship with the lack of oestrogen at menopause.
Our bones start to age as we enter our mid thirties and as a result, one in two women and one in five men over the age of 50 will suffer a fracture due to weakened bones. Unfortunately, broken bones or ‘fragility fractures’ are all too common, so adopting a healthier lifestyle earlier on may help you to minimise the risk of fractures as you get older (Royal Osteoporosis Society).
Osentia® is a new, clinically proven, safe and accurate test that can identify your risk of fragility fractures, a common sign that you could have osteoporosis.
Unlike a dexa scan (DXA) which requires an outpatient appointment at your hospital, this convenient home test kit only requires a fingernail or toenail clipping to be sent to the Osentia® laboratory in Nottingham using the prepaid envelope provided. The clipping is analysed by Raman spectroscopy to look for changes in the nail structure, which correlate with your risk of developing osteoporosis. Your personalised results will be sent to you within seven days.
The cost includes laboratory analysis and a report highlighting your risk of osteoporosis.
Detailed instructions are included in the pack.
The procedure is simple but please read the instructions included with your collection pack.
The pack includes;
- Test Request Form
- Simple to follow instructions
- Pre paid packaging to send your finger or toe nail sample to the Osentia® laboratory
Once your nail sample has been received by the Osentia® laboratory, your sample will be tested and you will receive detailed results by Email.
- Turnaround time is 7 days from the day the laboratory receives your sample
- Results returned by Email
