    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    Product Description

    Potassium

    This test is not available separately, only as an addition to an order. Also not available to request as a post-test.

    This test is sensitive and can sometimes and fail, you should be careful with the submission times.

    If the test fails because the blood is no longer of sufficient quality, due to the strict entry control at the lab, you will receive a refund, or you may add the test to your next test for free.

    Potassium is a positively charged particle (ion) normally present in low concentration in the blood along with other particles such as sodium and chloride. It is also referred to as "electrolytes" when talking about these particles/ions. Electrolytes maintain the amount of water and acidity (pH) of the body. Potassium is also very important for proper muscle function.

    Most potassium is found in the cells of the body. About 2% is only present in body fluids, including the blood. Because there is so little potassium in the blood, small changes often have major consequences. Too much or too little potassium can be dangerous, as it can cause shock, breathing difficulties or cardiac arrhythmias.

    This test is sensitive and can sometimes and fail, you should be careful with the submission times.
