Electrolytes are minerals in our body that have an electrical charge. They are crucial for various vital functions, including maintaining fluid balance, regulating blood pressure, and supporting nerve and muscle cell functions. A blood electrolyte test measures the levels of these essential minerals in your bloodstream.

IntroLab is a specialized laboratory for blood draws, at your service for this particular analysis. Our prices for blood laboratory tests are both competitive and economical.

Which electrolytes are analyzed?

The analysis of electrolytes in blood typically involves measuring the levels of the following electrolytes:

  • Sodium (Na) – Sodium is the most important electrolyte in the blood, crucial for maintaining the body’s fluid balance, as well as for transmitting nerve impulses and ensuring proper muscle function.
  • Potassium (K) – Potassium plays a vital role in the functioning of nerve and muscle cells, particularly in the heart muscle, and in maintaining the body’s fluid balance.
  • Chloride (Cl) – Chloride is the most prevalent anion in the bloodstream. It assists in maintaining the balance of acidity and alkalinity (pH) in the body and plays a role in fluid balance.
  • Bicarbonate (HCO3) or Carbon Dioxide (CO2) – Bicarbonate is an essential electrolyte that helps maintain the balance of acidity and alkalinity in the body. The level of carbon dioxide in the blood can be used as an indirect measure of bicarbonate.

Measuring these electrolytes allows doctors to evaluate kidney function, fluid balance, blood acidity (pH), and heart function. Depending on your health condition and symptoms, your doctor may decide to extend the analysis to other electrolytes or minerals.

Indications for blood electrolyte analysis

This test is frequently included in routine blood examinations. It is particularly recommended for patients who exhibit symptoms like fatigue, weakness, irregular heart rhythms, or kidney problems. Moreover, doctors may suggest this analysis for monitoring patients who are taking medications that could impact electrolyte levels.
