What is Urine Potassium?

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 is Urine Potassium done?

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.
