Understanding Potassium Random Urine in Nagpur


What is Potassium Random Urine in Nagpur?

A Potassium Random Urine test is used to measure the amount of potassium, an important electrolyte, in your urine at any random time of the day. This test is done as part of a routine health checkup or as a follow-up test for ongoing health conditions like high blood pressure, kidney disease, heart problems, etc. 

What does Potassium Random Urine measure?

A Potassium Random Urine test measures the amount of potassium excreted in the urine sample taken at any random time of the day. Potassium is predominantly present inside cells throughout the body, and its level is regulated by the kidneys. Under normal circumstances, the body absorbs the required amount of potassium from the dietary sources and eliminates the remaining quantity through urine. Potassium level is normally maintained by the hormone aldosterone. Aldosterone acts on the nephrons present in the kidneys and activates the sodium-potassium pump that helps the body reabsorb sodium and excrete potassium. This aids in maintaining a normal and steady potassium level in the body.
