Deoxypyridinoline is a biochemical marker of bone turnover useful in detecting bone resorption. Significantly high levels of DPD are found in children, in post menopausal women due to estrogen deficiency, and in patients with diseases that have high bone turnover rates. DPD can be used to monitor antiresorptive therapies in postmenopausal women and in individuals diagnosed with osteoporosis. DPD is s cross-link of type 1 collagen that provides tensile strength to the collagen matrix of bone. DPD is released into circulation during bone resorption and is excreted unmetabolized into urine. DPD levels are not affected by diet or physical exercise. Urinary DPD concentrations reflect the true rate of bone turnover. Source: Regenstrief Institute
