elektrolity
Explanation:
Electrolytes are technically the dissolved salts present in the body fluids. Determining the levels of these chemicals in the bloodstream is a commonly performed blood test, usually ordered when it is suspected that your child might be dehydrated (although there are certainly other known or suspected conditions in which the test would be appropriate). Electrolytes, or 'lytes as you will commonly overhear, are thus often important for determining whether your child can be managed with oral rehydration fluids or should be admitted to the hospital for intravenous treatment.
