Doctor's notes

Hi, I am Dr. Adam Staten and here's my view on this test as a GP and Clinical Director at One Day Tests.

Phosphate plays a vital role in bone health primarily because it is a major component of hydroxyapatite, which is the mineral complex that gives bones their strength and hardness.

Hydroxyapatite crystals provide structural support to bones, making them strong and resistant to fractures. Phosphate ions, along with calcium ions, form the backbone of these crystals, contributing to the structural integrity of bones.

Red flag symptoms for the Bone Profile Blood Test

Even if your results are normal, please contact your GP is you have any persistent symptoms of any kind.

  1. Pain: Persistent or localized pain in the bones or joints can be a common symptom of bone problems.
  2. Swelling: Swelling around a bone or joint may occur due to inflammation, injury, infection, or underlying bone conditions.
  3. Limited Mobility: Difficulty or pain with movement, stiffness, or reduced range of motion in a joint can be indicative of bone or joint problems such as arthritis or fractures.

Special instructions

Hi, I am Stefania Brown, I am the Laboratory Manager at One Day Tests and here are the lab's special requests for the Bone Profile Blood Test.

There are no special instructions for this test.

Venepuncture appointment - how to prepare

If you are coming into one of our clinics for the test, this is what you need to do before you arrive:

  • Drink plenty of water about an hour before the appointment.
  • Avoid coffee/tea/energy drinks. Water is good!
  • That’s it! We’ll do the rest.

Home test kit for Bone Profile Blood Test - how it works

Our blood test kits are simple and convenient.

The most important step in doing a blood test at home is to read the instructions very carefully. The process is very simple, but there are a few pitfalls you need to be aware of - you will save yourself a lot of time if you do it right the first time around!

  • Full printed instructions will arrive with your kit - please read them carefully.
  • Drink plenty before taking the sample and warm your hands up in the sink with warm water for a few minutes. This will make your blood flow much better.
  • Fill the tubes to the top line. We don’t need much blood; filling tubes to the top line is about 15 drops of blood.
  • Post the samples on the same day you take them, before midday, Monday to Thursday. If you post it any other time it might get to us late or be stuck at a sorting office over the weekend. You will then have to do it again.
  • Package the sample in the same box the kit came in. Otherwise, Royal Mail or DPD will reject it. The sample tubes go into a pouch, then into a cardboard box, and then into a return envelope. All of this is provided in the kit: please use it.

We look forward to receiving your sample in our lab!
