Potassium Blood Test

This test measures Potassium levels in the blood.  Potassium is an electrolyte which helps in moving nutrients into cells while moving waste products out.  The Potassium test may be used to evaluate an electrolyte imbalance or acid/base imbalance.  The most common cause of high potassium levels is kidney disease

This test is commonly ordered as part of routine general health testing.  It can also be done to monitor people with kidney disease, high blood pressure or certain types of heart conditions.

Potassium is included in several general health panels including a Basic Metabolic Panel, a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, and a Renal Function Panel.

Turnaround time for the Potassium test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Potassium test has no fastng requirements.
