Can I Do A Potassium, Sodium, Chloride Or Bicarbonate Test From Home?
Potassium, Sodium, Chloride and Bicarbonate are each a type of electrolyte, commonly tested as part of a kidney function test.
As they are very sensitive markers, we only offer testing of them for samples collected at the London patient reception, or from a nurse visit within the M25. This is so that your sample can be analysed immediately post-collection, to ensure accurate results can be obtained.
If this is a suitable option for you then if you purchase the kidney function test here and select the patient reception, or nurse visit, option at checkout then each of these electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride & bicarbonate) will also be included in your results report.
