An electrolytes test measures the level of electrolytes in the blood. This includes sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate levels.

  • This test may be done as part of a regular checkup or to check the effect of certain conditions on electrolyte levels. Those conditions may include diabetes or kidney and gastrointestinal diseases.
  • The results of this test can help your healthcare provider diagnosis and better treat a variety of acute (short term) and chronic (long term) medical conditions.

In an adult, the blood sample is usually taken by placing a needle in a vein in the arm.

  • In a baby or child, the sample may be taken by pricking a finger or the heel.
  • Be sure to tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking. Some can affect the test results.

This care path's costs do not include the charge to draw blood from a vein (venipuncture). There will only be one charge to draw blood, even if multiple tests are being performed on the samples that are taken.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
