HIGH CHLORIDE IN BLOOD TEST. What does hyperchloremia mean?

Upper limit of chloride (cl) test (normal referent values) is 110 mmol/L (or 370 mg/dl).

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.
