Electrolyte Testing

We hear a lot about electrolytes, and we often associate them with hydration during sporting events. However, most of us don’t really understand what they are and how they work to help make us look and feel our best.

Electrolytes are substances that produce an electrically-conducting solution when dissolved in water or other polar solvents. Here at Test Smartly Labs, we have the latest testing tools at our disposal, and we can accurately determine if there’s a problem in your electrolyte balance with professional electrolyte testing.

What Does It Test For?

It’s not uncommon for an electrolyte test to be ordered as part of a routine physical. It allows your physician to further investigate conditions such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Kidney disease
  • Lung disease
  • Heart problems
