Chloride level was 101 in may but now is 93. Why the dip?

Chloride level was 101 in may but now is 93. Why the dip?

Serum chloride: Serum chloride concentrations change for only a few reasons - 1. Can dip if serum sodium dips also: will follow sodium. 2. Can dip if serum bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) rises: reciprocal change. 3. Chloride thus is a secondary anion -- it follows another ionic change as above. Discerning the primary cause is essential: sodium depletion, water retention (1.). Bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) retention, chloride loss (2.) Doc knows ...Read more

I had my blood drawm and they said I had high chloride levels I am 21 and I do smoke and have for four yrs. What does chloride mean and is it bad?

Blood salts: Chloride is an electrolyte in our body that combines with others to form salts. Commonly it is associated with sodium to form sodium chloride aka salt. As a mineral in our body it helps with cellular function and can easily change with the amounts of hydration we have. If we are dehydrated for example we would expect salt levels to be higher than normal. ...Read more
