Description

Lactic acid and plasma tests help to assess an individual’s health by providing information about the body’s chemistry and functioning. The lactic acid test measures the amount of lactic acid that is present in the blood. Lactic acid is a chemical that is produced by the body when the body is deficient in oxygen, such as during exercise or when there is an underlying medical condition. It is important to understand lactic acid levels because having too much lactic acid can lead to symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, and pain. The plasma test measures the proteins, electrolytes, and other substances that are present in the plasma, which is the liquid part of the blood. It can provide valuable information about the functioning of organs, including the kidneys, and helps to detect deficiencies in the body. Both lactic acid and plasma tests are important when assessing an individual’s health because they help provide a clear picture of the body’s chemistry and functioning.
