Osteocalcin

Osteocalcin is a calcium-binding protein found in the teeth and bones. This protein is released by osteoblasts, the bone-forming cells, and is deposited by the body within the bone matrix. Serum Osteocalcin refers to the portion of total osteocalcin generated that is not incorporated into the bone matrix. 

Osteocalcin is a biological marker, or biomarker, for the process of bone production in the human body. Serum osteocalcin levels have been the primary cause of a variety of bone disorders. Increased serum osteocalcin results in increased bone turnover and osteoporosis. A blood test for osteocalcin is required to determine the serum osteocalcin level in the body.

Why done? 

A blood test for osteocalcin is used to diagnose various bone disorders. The osteocalcin blood test can diagnose bone discomfort, height loss, joint pain, bulging chest, quickly shattered bones, and even facial and extremity enlargement. 

This test can also identify osteoporosis, acromegaly, hyperparathyroidism, hyperthyroidism, osteomalacia, and Paget's disease. All of them are indicated by elevated serum osteocalcin levels. Multiple myeloma and cirrhosis of the liver can be detected in people with low serum osteocalcin levels. In summary, the osteocalcin blood test is a minimally intrusive method for diagnosing and treating various bone-related disorders.
