DPD Testing: A Valuable Tool for your Healthcare Practice
While bone may seem like a static tissue, it is actually very dynamic, in a perpetual state of being broken down and rebuilt, called remodeling. This process includes resorption (mature bone breaking down) and deposition or ossification (building new bone). Peak bone mass is reached around age 30, after which time it steadily declines. The rate at which it declines, also called resorption, is determined by this delicate balance between resorption and deposition. A simple urine test to monitor DPD levels can be a valuable tool offering insight as to the rate of bone resorption. This 7-minute webinar explains why DPD testing is a helpful marker for bone loss and when to test your patients’ DPD levels.
