CO2 Electrolytes Test
It is important for both men and women to look after their health. As well as a healthy diet, the right amount and kind of exercise, this means keeping tabs on the body’s performance. One part of the wellness panel for men and women is the electrolyte panel, which tests your body’s fluids for their electrolyte balance. This is designed to help you discover how your body is doing and to diagnose one of several ailments that can be discovered from an electrolyte imbalance in the body’s urine and/or blood. The KwikMed test has helped thousands of Americans learn more about their body and to fix problems before they become serious.
What Do You Mark Off on a Lab Requisition for Electrolytes
It is a good idea to be prepared prior to arranging an electrolyte panel test as with any medical test. First, not all states allow KwikMed to offer testing panels. Please check that your state is participating in this process. As with all medicines, KwikMed are licensed to prescribe or test and to offer these tests without a license is illegal. This does mean any laboratory test indicating electrolytes
must be signed off and approved by a physician before it can be enacted. This is simply to ensure there is no risk to the patient from taking the test. The process is simple. You will need to register an account with KwikMed and then to order the test. Once approved for it, you will have to pay. You should then receive an email requisition form within 24 hours, which you can take to your local laboratory. The test will be conducted there and the results posted on your KwikMed account within 3 to 5 days.
What are Lytes on a Lab Requisition
Electrolytes are formed from solutions of bases, acids or salts. They usually take the form of a liquid or gel. Common types of electrolyte found in the body include potassium, sodium, magnesium and chloride. Their symbols are usually accompanied by plus or minus signs to denote their positive or negative charges. All known living life forms require some kind of electrolyte balance in order to exist and function. Any imbalance can be a cause or a result of problems within the organism. Two important body functions dependent upon electrolytes are muscle movement and the nervous system.
How is PH Level Determined From an Electrolyte Panel
Urinalysis and blood analysis are used to check fluid and electrolyte form. These look at hydration and PH level. These should be compared, where possible, to clinical history to ensure there is an imbalance. For example, fluid and electrolyte imbalances in patient with Cushing Syndrome may be easier to determine if there has been a history of such tests in the past. PH levels are usually checked via blood samples as this gives a good indication of blood PH.
What Does an Electrolyte Test Check
The electrolyte panel normal amount of electrolytes is known to a certain degree. It tests for roughly 135 to 145 mEq/l of Sodium, 96-106 mEq/L of Chloride, plus the values of carbon dioxide and potassium in the blood. If the values fall outside of normal ranges then you have a test that shows an electrolyte imbalance. There are a number of root causes for these problem to occur. This is why it is important not to panic after a test result showing an imbalance. After a diagnosis has been made, remember to consult a physician to get a diagnosis. It is not save to self-diagnose then self-medicate, so get a professional opinion first.
