A 24-H urine chloride is an alternate way other than a blood test to measure the amount of chloride that is consumed in your diet which also parallels the amount of sodium you take in since they are usually found together. An increase in urine chloride may result from water deficient dehydration, diabetic acidosis, Addison’s Disease, and salt-losing kidney disease. Decreased urine levels are seen in congestive heart failure, severe sweating and in a hypochloremic (low chloride) metabolic alkalosis due to prolonged vomiting.
