I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What tests are there for pH level of body?

What tests would need to be done to ascertain if body is alkaline or acidic by and large. I am eliminating all ACID Ash leaving food and shifting to alkaline diet . However would need a measurable parameter which can quantitavely indicate the direction that i am on wrt body alkalinity/acidity control as acidic means diseased/prone to disease.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic Forum

There is no a single test which can say your body is acidic or base.. because PH of different body fluids are different , most of times urine will be acidic, normally semen is alkaline... hence Disease is not related to acidity or alkalinity..

I was in the hospital for tests for tests when I was very confused and disoriented. The test showed that my potassium levels were very low; (2.8 mmoi/should be 3.5-5.1 mmoi/L) Is this a condition that can get worst or can be easily treated? I am still confused.
