About Bone Specific Alkaline Phosphatase Test

Why is the BSAP test done?

Several diseases might be causing higher levels of alkaline phosphatase (bone-specific) inside the body. There are several diseases that could be causing problems with the bones. If suspected by medical practitioners, these diseases lead them to ask for the BSAP test. These diseases include:

  • Paget’s disease (symptoms include pain in the bones and joints, bone deformities, weakness in the bones, unexplained hearing loss)
  • Hyperparathyroidism (symptoms include pain in the abdomen, pain in the bones and joints, getting tired easily or weakness)
  • Osteomalacia (symptoms include bone pains, muscular weakness, aching pain, especially in the lower back)
  • Metastatic bone disease
  • Recent fracture
What does the BSAP test measure?

The BSAP test is used to measure the level of alkaline phosphatase in the blood.

Abnormalities in the level of AP could indicate problems in the bones that require immediate attention. There are several diseases that could be causing these abnormalities.

Paget’s disease is a chronic disease of the skeleton. The disease interferes with the body’s natural recycling process (where a new bone tissue replaces the original bone), leading to pain, weakness, and bone deformities.

Hyperparathyroidism is a condition where the parathyroid gland of the body produces excessive amounts of the parathyroid hormone. As a result, the calcium levels increase, leading to problems in the bones.

Osteomalacia is a condition where the bones are softened due to extreme Vitamin D deficiency in the body. This condition could lead to fractures in adults or bowing during growth for young children. A doctor should be consulted if the test results aren’t normal.

Risk/Side-effects of BSAP test

Generally, there is very less risk of any major symptoms inside the body. The person might feel slight pain (or some bruising) in the area where the needle has been pierced to take the blood. But those tend to disappear pretty quickly and not cause any major problems to the patient.

In very rare cases, the patient might develop blood collection under the skin or infection at the site where the needle was pierced. But that is a very rare occurrence and nothing major to worry about.
