Bones, Muscles, and Skin

Bones, Cartilage, Muscle and Skin Health

Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis. Some of the more common joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout may be first detected by simple blood tests (ANA, RA Latex, Uric Acid).

Statistics also show that at least 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from osteoporosis, the majority of them woman over age 50. Abnormalities in bone, such as osteoporosis and hyperparathyroidism, also can be monitored by following derangements in the blood (Alkaline Phosphatase, Calcium levels, Osteocalcin and Phosphorus levels).

Still other blood tests are associated with abnormalities in muscle, including creatine, L-carnitine and lactic acid dehydrogenase. Scleroderma, a rare skin disorder, can also be detected and monitored through a blood test.

We offer tests which not only help detect the skeletal problems in the first place, but also can help you determine the underlying conditions that cause them, such as diabetes, renal failure, Lupus, etc. Your primary care physician can help you decide which tests are appropriate for your specific needs.
