Lab Test Description

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.

What’s Being Tested:

  • Deoxypyridinoline, Urine
  • Pyridinium Crosslinks, Urine
  • Creatinine


Specimen: Urine, Genova Home Test Kit ( How It Works | FAQs)
