An electrolyte imbalance can be an indicator of renal failure. The kidneys maintain the electrolyte balance in the body. Electrolytes are needed by the heart so it can make use of the electrical impulses it gets from the brain. They also regulate fluids and acid levels in the body.

I don't think that hormones are responsible for electrolyte levels but rather the nephrons located in the kidneys control these levels through passive difusion.

Potassium is an electrolyte (a substance that maintains your body's fluid levels). It helps regulate blood pressure and heart function. Research shows that increasing your potassium intake can lower your blood pressure but too much can derange your electrolyte balance and slow your heart down, sometimes to dangerous levels.

In various blood work panels, doctors check for levels of chloride (CI). Chloride is an electrolyte that comes from salt and can be measured in urine or in the blood. Its purpose is to maintain a good balance of fluids in your body. It is often checked when signs of dehydration are present. There is also a sweat test that measures chloride levels to help doctors determine if a child is suffering from cystic fibrosis.
