Sodium Urine 24 Hour Test
A Urine Sodium test measures the amount of sodium in a sample of your urine. Having too much or too little sodium can indicate an issue with your kidneys or other health matters.
Sodium is an electrolyte that helps balance the amount of fluid in the body and plays a role in certain processes such as muscle and nerve function.
Low sodium (hyponatremia) is attributed to sodium loss and high sodium (hypernatremia) is usually caused by inadequate water consumption.
Preparation: There is no special preparation for this test.
