Osteoporosis Diagnostics, Treatment & Follow-Up Program


1.
Visit to internal medicine physician’s office

Case history of the patient (anamnesis), examination, discussion of test results, prescription of treatment, recommendations.
2.
Blood tests:
3.
General blood test (incl. taking of blood specimen): • Automatic blood test (erythrocytes, leukocytes, haemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets) • White blood cell differential • Reticulocytes • Blood sedimentation rate

This test provides information on all blood cells (erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets), their distribution by size. This information is important for evaluation of the overall heath conditions of the body. The test helps to determine many different acute and chronic diseases: deficiency of blood, blood cancer, allergies, etc.
4.
Calcium

This test enables to identify blood calcium levels, which is necessary in order to prescribe treatment. Calcium is the key structural element of bones. It has been determined, that female body uptakes calcium the worst after menopause – as little as 20% of the necessary amount. Which may result in bone softening and threatening bone thinning (osteoporosis), spine and leg spasms, depression.
5.
Ionised calcium

This test enables to identify blood calcium levels, which is necessary in order to prescribe treatment. Calcium is the key structural element of bones. It has been determined, that female body uptakes calcium the worst after menopause – as little as 20% of the necessary amount. Which may result in bone softening and threatening bone thinning (osteoporosis), spine and leg spasms, depression.
6.
Vitamin D3

This test helps evaluate the condition of the bone tissue and the risk of bone fractures, and diagnose bone diseases: rachitis, osteoporosis, osteomalacia.
7.
Osteocalcin N-Mid (bone turnover marker)

This test enables early evaluation of decreasing bone weight and the risk of possible osteoporotic fractures, effectively monitor treatment outcomes and evaluate complications. The test demonstrates success of therapy even 3 months after commencement of treatment, meanwhile other tests enable evaluating therapy only 2 years after the end of therapy. Physician may purposefully prescribe and continue treatment, identify patients that do not respond to therapy. These tests are also significant when diagnosing Paget bone disease, osteomalacia, and metabolic bone disease.
8.
Beta-Cross-Laps (bone resorption marker)

This test enables early evaluation of decreasing bone weight and the risk of possible osteoporotic fractures, effectively monitor treatment outcomes and evaluate complications. The test demonstrates success of therapy even 3 months after commencement of treatment, meanwhile other tests enable evaluating therapy only 2 years after the end of therapy. Physician may purposefully prescribe and continue treatment, identify patients that do not respond to therapy. These tests are also significant when diagnosing Paget bone disease, osteomalacia, and metabolic bone disease.
9.
Quantitative evaluation of bone mineralization in the way of CT examinatio

This is the most precise test for osteoporosis diagnostics. It enables evaluation of trabecular and cortical bone separately, which increases precision of the test. The risk of future bone fractions, change of bone mineral density alteration, effect of treatment, and course of disease are evaluated.

Comments. All tests and medical procedures included in to health check - up program are not replaced with other tests or medical procedures. If part of test and medical procedures from the above mentioned health check program are not carried out, this would not lower the price of the coupon and would not be refunded.
