Potassium Urine Test, 24-Hour
A 24-hour Potassium Urine Test is used to detect abnormal concentrations of potassium, including high potassium (hyperkalemia) and low potassium (hypokalemia).
Potassium is an electrolyte that is vital to cell metabolism. It helps transport nutrients into cells and removes waste products out of cells. It is also important in muscle function, helping to transmit messages between nerves and muscles, and is important to heart function. Irregular Potassium Levels can be indicative of a number of conditions including kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid disorders, and gastrointestinal problems.
