About the Electrolytes Blood Test
Electrolytes, the salts and minerals in our bloodstream, play a vital role in nerve impulse conduction, muscle contractions, and maintaining the blood's acid-base balance. These include sodium, potassium, and calcium, fundamental for our body's biological functions, including heart rhythm maintenance.
Significant electrolyte imbalances are uncommon in generally healthy individuals. They occur more frequently in hospitalised patients or those with kidney disease, severe diarrhoea or vomiting, as well as those in malnourished states, potentially caused by eating disorders.
Electrolyte imbalances can also be a side effect of certain medications, notably those used for blood pressure control. Regular monitoring is standard for individuals on these medications, as any imbalance typically resolves itself once the medication is discontinued.
- Potassium (Clinic only. Not available in home kits as this biomarker can only be accurate if analysed within very short period of time < 8 hours.)
