Overview of Urine Potassium

Test Description

The urine potassium test is performed to detect the quantity of potassium in a specific amount of urine and thus evaluate the electrolyte balance of the body. All you need to do is provide your urine sample for the test to be performed.

Why Get Tested

The doctor advises a urine potassium test when the patient presents consistent clinical signs like dehydration, diarrhoea, vomiting excessive sweating etc. that will have an adverse effect on body fluids and also symptoms such as muscle weakness, irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure. A person has to get the test done if he/she experiences some abnormality in kidney functions or the adrenal glands as they produce a hormone called aldosterone, which affects potassium levels.
