Description

Serum Osmolality Test

Osmolality is the increment and decreasing of blood because of dehydration and overhydration of one’s body. In a normal person, high levels of osmolality in blood can simulate antidiuretic hormone (ADH) secretion. This results in less concentrated blood plasma, high concentrated urine and increased water reabsorption.

Osmolality is actually the measuring of one substance’s ability to dissolve in another substance. The greater the concentration, the higher level of osmolality. Salty water has a very high osmolality level compared to water with a pinch of salt. The body’s functional ability makes specific adjustments, hence, can release and maintain adequate osmolality levels.

In fact, even you can know the level of yourself. If you are urinating frequently, consider your osmolality level is low. This is the body’s way to get rid of excess water and maintain the osmolality levels.

The osmolality test is also called the serum osmolality test, as serum is the liquid part of the blood.
