My recent blood test showed levels of  sodium (134) and chloride (97) that are at or below the recommended levels.  I'm 72 years old and in good health, not overweight.  Are the sodium and chloride levels something to be concerned about?
Do not be afraid.It is not a problem.
My chloride is 107. What does this mean? What can I do to bring it down?
Test result may vary from lab to lab. 107mEq/L doesn't really mean a lot. Causes to high blood chloride include medications that treat glaucoma, bromide poisoning, metabolic or renal acidosis, which occurs when your body produces too much acid or your kidneys don’t effectively remove acid from your body respiratory alkalosis, which occurs when there are low levels of carbon dioxide in your blood severe dehydrration As long as you're not taking certain medication, and have normal kidney function test result, things are fine. Drink more water every day.
