Features

Everyone has some risk of developing osteoporosis, which is often undiagnosed until the time you fracture a bone. It is therefore important to identify the risk of osteoporosis early enough to take steps to help prevent and minimise the development of the condition and reduce the risk of fracture. The Osentia® at-home screening test only requires a fingernail or toenail clipping measuring 2mm or more in depth and 5mm in width to be sent for laboratory analysis. You will also need to complete a test order form which includes questions about your health and lifestyle. The test will accurately provide your personal risk of a fragility fracture, which is an early indicator of your risk of developing osteoporosis. The results will be returned to you via email or post within seven days. Like a fingerprint your nail is unique. Osentia® looks for changes in the nail structure, which correlate with your risk of developing osteoporosis, providing you with a personalised result. Your result is based on the personal information you provide and the laboratory analysis of your fingernail or toenail clipping. You will receive personalised advice on how to reduce your risk of developing a fragility fracture, through simple diet and lifestyle changes. Everyone who completes the Osentia® test will be sent a tailored risk profile and a copy of Understanding and Managing Osteoporosis Risk Factors, a booklet packed with health and lifestyle information to help manage and minimize the risk of developing osteoporosis.

Benefits

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones lose their strength and are more likely to break, usually following a minor bump or fall; these breaks are known as fragility fractures. Osteoporosis is commonly known as the ‘silent disease’, as there are usually no tell-tale symptoms to alert you to its presence early on in its progression. This condition can remain undiagnosed until a bone is fractured, but don’t wait until you suffer from a break. Osentia is clinically proven, safe and accurate test that can identify your risk of fragility fractures, a common sign that you may have osteoporosis. Understanding your risk and adopting a healthier lifestyle early on may help minimise the risk of fractures.

Tips & Advice

As people age, bone loss increases gradually, which can lead to osteoporosis and risk of fragility fractures. As a result by the age of 50, one in two women and one in five men in the UK will suffer a fracture due to fragile bones. As well as age, many other factors can determine your risk of suffering from a fragility fracture. These include: Low body weight, genetics, smoking, gender, alcohol, ethnicity, diet and exercise. The Osentia Osteoporosis Screening Test will assess your risk factors and provide you with personalised advice on positive actions to take. For example, increasing weight bearing exercise can build and maintain bone strength and prevent fragility fractures.
