Tests Included

Kidney Function

Sodium is both an electrolyte and a mineral. It helps regulate the water and electrolyte balance of the body and is important in the operation of nerves and muscles. Sodium levels in the blood are regulated by the kidneys. 

Excess sodium in the blood is often due to dehydration but can also indicate that the kidneys are not working properly. 

Too little sodium is often caused by fluid retention (oedema) or reflects loss due to vomiting, diarrhoea or excessive sweating.
