A potassium test determines the potassium level in the blood, an electrolyte necessary for muscle and nerve function. It maintains your body's fluid and acid-base balance. This test is typically performed if you have an irregular heartbeat, muscle twitches, or weakness.

Hyperkalaemia occurs when the kidneys fail to adequately filter excess potassium from the blood for excretion through urine. Hypokalaemia occurs when the body lacks potassium due to diuretics used to treat high blood pressure or other ailments.
