The World Health Organization ranks osteoporosis as one of the economic most significant diseases of the 21st century. Apart from anamnesis, physical examination, and imaging techniques, laboratory tests are important tools in the diagnosis and monitoring of osteoporosis. Basic laboratory tests can be distinguished from advanced laboratory tests. The basic laboratory tests are used to differentiate between the primary and secondary form of osteoporosis. Further laboratory tests can clarify the causation of secondary forms of osteoporosis. Biochemical markers of bone turnover are particularly used for monitoring the therapy and the course of osteoporosis.
