electrolytes enables determination of one’s renal function.
Sodium, Chloride & Potassium (electrolyte) levels are used to determine kidney or renal function. A blood test will measure the level of electrolytes in your blood stream. Healthy kidneys filter electrolytes (and other waste products) from your blood allowing the filtered byproduct to be excreted from the body in urine. If one's kidneys are not properly functioning, it may result in an accumulation of electrolytes in the blood.
