How The Osentia Test Can Help

Osentia® has been clinically proven to assess the risk of fragility fractures, a common sign that you may have osteoporosis, enabling early, long-term lifestyle changes to be made and earlier treatment to be administered. This convenient test only needs a fingernail or toenail clipping, which will be sent to our laboratory for analysis, where it looks for changes in the nail structure, which correlate with your risk of developing osteoporosis.

Test Results

This test allows people to take control of their bone health by pre-empting and managing any risk. Osentia® presents results in a personalised way using a traffic light format, so patients can understand their current risk of experiencing a fragility fracture, a common sign of osteoporosis:


Green result

This means you currently have a lower than average risk of suffering from fragility fractures.


Amber Result

This means you currently have a moderate risk of suffering from fragility fractures.


Red Result

This means you currently have a relatively high risk of suffering from fragility fractures.

Those taking the test will also receive individual advice based on the risk assessment of their nail clipping and lifestyle questionnaire. They will also be sent a booklet which will offer advice on how they can maintain their bone strength through diet and exercise and help minimise their risk of developing osteoporosis.


Why take the test

Our bones start to age as we enter our mid-thirties and as a result one in two women and one in five men over the age of 50 will break a bone mainly as a result of Osteoporosis.1

Bone loss is a natural part of the ageing process, but fractures are not part of growing old.2 We can minimise our risk with regular testing using Osentia®, taking action if needed to help strengthen and maintain bone health before it’s too late. Combining a nutrient-rich diet of protein, fruit and vegetables with regular weight bearing exercises we can maintain bone health and prevent any fragility fractures from occurring in the future.
