Often hyperchloremia does not produce any symptoms. However, hyperchloremia is sometimes associated with excess fluid loss such as vomiting and diarrhea.
If the sufferer were to be a diabetic, hyperchloremia could lead to poor control of blood sugar concentration, which could cause it to become elevated. Hyperchloremia can be symptomatic with signs of Kussmaul's breathing, weakness, and intense thirst.
