Sodium is a mineral and an electrolyte at the same time. It helps keep the body's water and electrolyte balance (the amount of fluid inside and outside the cells). The way nerves and muscles work is also affected by sodium. The amount of sodium in the urine can be checked with a 24-hour or a one-time (spot) test.
Your doctor might give you a urine sodium test if your blood sodium test comes back with abnormal results. This can be a sign of acute kidney failure. The test helps tell the difference between pre-renal (dehydration) and tubular death, two common causes of kidney failure (ATN). They get different treatments.
You'll have to provide a urine sample.
How does one prepare for the test?
