N-Telopeptide Cross-links (NTx) Urine Test


* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.



The NTx test measures the concentration of cross-linked N-telopeptides of type I collagen.

Levels of NTx correlate with the rate of bone resorption. Bone resorption rates exceeding bone formation results in a net loss of bone and ultimately osteopenia or osteoporosis. Osteoporotic fractures are a major source of morbidity and mortality in older women.

Recommended For:

Those who have been diagnosed with metabolic bone disease; Those who are undergoing therapy to slow or halt osteoporotic bone loss.

Special Notes:

No special preparation is required prior to urine sample collection.
