If you are having an electrolyte imbalance in your system, doctor will prescribe potassium test. Electrolytes like potassium, sodium, are responsible to keep the cellular structures in our body normal. It balances the energy levels in our body by supporting different body functions.

A sample of blood is required to study the amount of potassisium present in patient's body. The test involves few risk factors as well. However, if you take care of the needful, risk factors won't last long.

Doctors prescribe pottasium test to those who suffer from metabolic issues. The test helps in analysis of part of your basic metabolic panel along with other aspects. The test is also included in a routine physical examination.

You can be prescribed to undergo potassium test for the following:

  • Verify how certain drugs affect the levels of potassium in your system. These medicines can be related to high blood pressure or cardiac anomalies.

  • To diagnose alkalosis
  • To evaluate an electrolyte imbalance
  • To diagnose a case of high blood pressure
  • To examine a case suspicious of having metabolic acidosis
  • To study the cause of paralysis attack
  • To analyze issues related to cardiac health

You may be asked to discontinue certain types of medications some days prior to the test procedure. This step is necessary, as it has an impact on your test results. Few other special instructions will be provided in detail some day before the test. Also, the lab analyst in charge of the test will explain you the entire procedure.

If you have ordered a serum potassium test, you will have to collect your blood samples at the laboratory. If you have ordered a urinalysis to know about your potassium levels, you will be given a container to collect your urine sample. Both these procedures are completely different and have different precautions to be followed before you appear for the test.
