High or low electrolyte levels can be attributed to a variety of conditions. Generally, the levels reflect the intake through diet, amount absorbed by the body, the amount of water in a person's body, and the amount eliminated by the kidneys. They are also influenced by several hormones such as aldosterone, a hormone that conserves sodium and promotes the elimination of potassium, and natriuretic peptides, which increase elimination of sodium by the kidneys.
