The Potassium Plasma test measures the concentration of potassium, a vital mineral and electrolyte, in the blood plasma. Potassium plays a crucial role in various bodily functions, including maintaining proper muscle contractions, nerve function, and regulating heart rhythms. It also plays a role in maintaining fluid balance, pH levels, and other metabolic processes in the body.

The Potassium Plasma test is primarily ordered to evaluate the level of potassium in a patient's blood. Potassium is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in nerve function, muscle contractions, and maintaining heart rhythm. The test helps in diagnosing and monitoring potential potassium imbalances, such as hyperkalemia (high potassium levels) or hypokalemia (low potassium levels).

Abnormal levels of potassium in the blood can indicate various health conditions. High potassium levels (hyperkalemia) can result from kidney disease, dehydration, certain medications, or hormone deficiencies like Addison's disease. On the other hand, low potassium levels (hypokalemia) can be due to diarrhea, vomiting, some diuretic medications, eating disorders, or conditions like Cushing's syndrome.

No preparation required.
