You need: a thorough examination and workup by an experienced healthcare provider for metabolic acidosis, diabetes insipidus or kidney disease. You may also have dehydration but that usually gives other electrolyte abnormalities. Also ingestion of certain medications or drugs can cause this isolated hyperchloremia. Please see a healthcare provider right away. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
