What exactly is the OsteoTest | home?
The OsteoTest | home from osteolabs is uncomplicated, fast and does not require an X-ray, because it determines the calcium ratios in the bones using a urine sample. So you can simply test yourself at home and get certainty in three steps.
This is a clinically tested procedure in which the calcium and creatinine values in the urine are measured several times in a high-performance and proven mass spectrometer. You will receive an exact and precise evaluation with a comprehensible and individual test assessment safely and discreetly at your home, so that you can then discuss any further steps with your family doctor.
It's that simple:
Take the osteoporosis test easily and conveniently at home and send it to the medical laboratory.
Your sample will then be thoroughly tested and evaluated in our medical laboratory.
Afterwards, your test results will be sent safely and discreetly directly to your home in a laboratory report.
„I use the test as standard for every woman over 50 to detect a possible disease early.“
General practitioner from Kiel
„All women in my mother's generation developed osteoporosis at some point. With lots of exercise in the fresh air and a healthy diet, I can already do something for my bones. I check whether this is enough at regular intervals with a test from osteolabs.“

Frequently asked questions
Mrs Lorentz: "Osteoporosis is the loss of bone mass. The disease mostly affects women, even in middle age. In Germany alone, 7.8 million people already suffer from this disease. Osteoporosis often goes unnoticed, which is why early detection is so important. That's why I recommend the osteolabs early test to all at-risk patients."
Mrs Lorentz: "The body is constantly building up and breaking down bone mass. The female sex hormones, the oestrogens, ensure a balance between the cells that break down bone mass, the osteoclasts, and the cells that build up bone mass, the osteoblasts. With the onset of the menopause, the oestrogens are missing and more bone mass is broken down than built up. If additional stresses are added, osteoporosis can occur."
Mrs Lorentz: "The loss of bone mass is irreversible. The earlier prevention and therapies begin, the better the process can be slowed down. X-rays can only detect the degradation when it has already begun and reached a certain level. OsteoTest | home provides much earlier indications of osteoporosis."
Mrs Lorentz: "In most cases, the urine test can replace an examination with X-rays for early detection. To be on the safe side, you should discuss this question with your doctor."
Mrs Lorentz: "63,643 notifications for medical devices, for example, were available to the German Institute for Medical Documentation and Information in September 2017 (IKK figures). It is often difficult for doctors to keep track of this and to know every new procedure immediately."
Mrs Lorentz: "The urine sample is analysed in a complex procedure with highly specialised equipment and software. For your safety, the analysis is carried out according to the highest quality standards."
Mrs Lorentz: "Yes, definitely. Only further tests show the effectiveness of a therapy, for example. Therapy successes are immediately visible. If they fail to materialise, an unnecessary or ineffective therapy can be quickly discontinued and replaced by a better measure."
Mrs Lorentz: "Bones need calcium. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption from food and is therefore important for bone formation."
