Cause Of Low Chloride
What causes a slightly low Chloride serum level? My level was 97. C02 was 29 which was slightly elevated.
Slightly low CL?: Most likely a variation within ur normal range. It is best to ignore slightly low or high tests when many are done. Eating, supine or standing, time of day, when u last drank water or took meds or how fast u were breathing or how the blood was drawn/ processed, squeezing hand before blood draw, breAthing too fast or too slow on purpose or from anxiety may change many blood tests.

No: It takes five seconds to make up a lie. You can spend a year showing why it's not true, and if you do, you're still going to be portrayed as the bad guy. Real carcinogens mutate genes or are obvious tissue-damaging agents -- anything can do stuff in a junk-science experiment, and people pretending to be your friends report this to rip you off. Stop worrying. ...Read more

Calcium is 8.3, chloride, 106, and bun/creat ratio is 30. Normal says 10-20. Platelets vary low to 229 being tested for leukemia. Is this normal?
See below...: Calcium is minimally decreased (normal: 8.9-10.1 mg/dl). Chloride is at the upper limit of normal (98-106 mmol/l). Your bun/creatinine ratio is increased, a finding that usually indicates prerenal azotemia that often times is a consequence of dehydration but other causes are also possible including gastrointestinal bleeding, acute renal failure, congestive heart failure, etc. Platelets normal. ...Read more
I just received some test results back that said my protein c is high, protein s is low my pai-1 is high, my chloride is high and my co2 is low?
Clot risk.: A high protein c has no significance, only low. A low protein s, like protein c, is a risk for having abnormal blood clots or pregancy complications. Protein c and s cooperate to dissolve blood clots. Pai-1 blocks the clot dissolving pathway, so a high level also is a risk for abnormal clots. A high chloride and low co2 are part of the salts in the blood that are regulated by the kidneys. ...Read more
Husband has low WBC and RBC (4.0 & 4.69, respectively) high MCH at 32.7, low gran % at 42.6 and granulocyte # at 1.7. His chloride is also low @ 100?
Ask the doctor!: The doctor who ordered these tests is the person who can best interpret the results. We could give you some additional information but I fear it would only provoke more questions. It would be a sorry medical practitioner who wouldn't take the time to explain the significance of these values. Please ask!!!!! ...Read more
I have hyponatremia, low chloride and high TSH 12.8. Sodium went to 116. Many hospitalizations. Take 10 1gr sodium tabs. Fluid res?
Low sodium: You need to see an endocrinologist (ea) as soon as possible. You are hypothyroid (h) with your high tsh. That could be one cause of your low sodium (ls). Ls is a life-threatening situation. See an e, get your h treated with medicine and you may stop the need for your sodium pills and avoid future hospitalizations. You will also begin to feel better. ...Read more
My blood work up shows "High Chlorides and Lymphocytes with low Neutrophils" what does this mean? Is this the indicator for the Rhumatoid Factor?
Lab work: No this is not a sign of RA. However, I don't know what the rest means as I deal with numbers not with arbitrary highs and lows. What is considered high and low "by the lab" may be considered normal by a doctor or not. We pay attention to the clinical condition with the numbers to consider its significance. There are some numbers reported by labs that have no meaning at all to us. ...Read more
What can cause increased WBC, CRP, and Chloride levels in blood tests when all other lab work is normal?
Just had labs done. Low RBC, HGB,HCT, Ferritin,Vit D. High RDW, TBil,Chloride. What does this mean? Treatment?
Out of Context: It is not our place to interpret your labs without the full lab results, access to your health care history, physical exam and the very reason the tests were done in the first place. This interpretation of labs must come from the professional caring for you who ordered them. The question you have asked us is impossible to answer on the internet. ...Read more
I have been told by my dr. subscribed 1 gm of sodium chloride 2x's daily for chronic hyponatremia...they cause nausea-vomiting. Could I be allergic?
Wrong treatment: Hi. The treatment for hyponatremia depends on the patient's volume status (dehydrated, volume over-loaded, or normal volume status) and the underlying cause. The most common cause, SIADH, is treated with water restriction (or one of the new vaptan drugs), NOT by giving salt. Nausea and vomiting can be FROM severe hyponatremia. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to see an endocrinologist. ...Read more

I have long-standing hyponatremia, low chloride plus high TSH 12.8. I have been hospitalized mult times had seizure. Taking 10 1gr sodium. Fluid res?
FInd out why: I trust you are not taking a diuretic for some reason, and I trust you do not have inappropriate ADH (vasopressin) secretion due to porphyria or some other illness. Especially, I hope you don't have undiagnosed addison's disease especially with the high TSH (possible schmidt's). Have you been evaluated for one of the syndromes of renal sodium wasting? ...Read more
Blood work results,chloride was low at 98 mmol, anion gap was high at 17.4,glucose was high at 108 mg/dl, A1c was 6.2,albumin/globulin ratio 2.0?
Prediabetes: Hi. That A1c is above normal, & if that glucose is FASTING, it is too (it's not abnormal if it's not fasting). They demonstrate "prediabetes", the abnormal state between normal & diabetes. What was your bicarb/total CO2? Unless it was low, anion gap (a calculated value) doesn't mean anything; it's useful in states of ketoacidosis, lactic acidosis, etc). A:G ratio is fine too. Eat healthy, exercise ...Read more
