When it comes to electrolytes, your body is very good at regulating your levels. Usually within an hour, your sodium and chloride levels will have returned to normal levels, even after suffering muscle cramps during competition. Our sweat test determines what your real-time losses will be, so we can scientifically replenish based on your specific needs and assure your levels will never drop below normal during an event. A blood test does not provide the real-time information needed to determine an individual’s specific fluid and electrolyte needs.
For example, your blood sodium levels should be 135 mmol/L to 145 mmol/L. Whether you are a muscle cramper or not, your blood tests will most likely be within this range.
