Information

In our body there are many vital elements that we need, potassium which is a mineral is one of them. Potassium is important for our nerve and muscle function as well as regulation of blood pressure. Both too high and too low potassium values can cause heart rhythm disturbances.

The potassium test is for you who want to gain insight into how your kidneys are doing and whether you may be suffering from reduced kidney function. Here are some examples of reasons to check potassium levels:

  • Potassium deficiency: Testing can also show if you have a potassium deficiency, which is unusual but can occur in, for example, prolonged diarrhea or when using diuretics.
  • Treatment of acute illness: When treating acute illness, it is important to check potassium levels regularly to ensure effective and safe treatment.
  • High blood pressure: A common health risk is high blood pressure, and potassium levels can play a critical role in regulating blood pressure. Analysis of potassium levels can provide an early indication of potential problems.
  • Kidney diseases: In case of kidney disease, the levels of potassium in the body are affected. By testing yourself, you are given the opportunity to monitor and manage potassium levels.
  • When treated with drugs: Some drugs can affect potassium levels, especially drugs used for high blood pressure and heart disease. Then it can be valuable to regularly test the potassium levels in order to adapt treatment in the best possible way.

Minerals are non-organic compounds that are used as building blocks to build up parts of the body.
