61 Possible Causes for Chloride Decreased, Salt Craving

  • Addison's Disease

    Classically, patients affected with Addison's disease develop weakness, anorexia, electrolyte imbalances: decreased sodium and chloride with increased serum potassium resulting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] craving.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With Addison’s disease when cortisol is low, there is low sodium, low chlorides, and resulting high potassium in blood serum. There is often times metabolic acidosis.[earthclinic.com]

  • Salt Depletion

    However, in the SD group, but not in the N3 group, the drug was effective in significantly decreasing the absolute and fractional excretions of sodium and chloride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Salty Deception: What Your Salt Cravings Really Mean New Salt Study Proves to be Misleading “Experts” say that 90% of Americans are eating way too much salt, which puts them[bodyecology.com] When metabolic alkalosis is present, urine chloride is also measured.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Bartter's Disease

    As a matter of fact, chronic vomiting and diarrhea without diuretics can cause a Pseudo Bartter’s syndrome with the full pattern of Bartter’s syndrome, but with low chloride[omicsonline.org] craving, constipation, insensitivity to angiotensin II pressor effects, normal blood pressure.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Five weeks after birth, his sodium chloride loss turned into renal potassium loss, along with a marked decrease in urine output.[link.springer.com]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Sodium, potassium, chloride and carbon dioxide are measured to help detect and evaluate the severity of an existing electrolyte imbalance and to monitor the effectiveness[labtestsonline.org] craving (M) arthralgias, myalgias mental health Crisis: GI weakness, apathy, confusion, decreased LOC, coma lightheadedness (result from decreased salt) Excess: Physical[sharinginhealth.ca] There are some classical signs and many signs suggestive of AI that may be useful for diagnosis, such as hyperpigmentation or salt craving.[scielo.br]

  • Low Chloride

    Decreasing concentrations of chloride induced dose-related coughing, which was inhibited by furosemide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cravings, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, irritability and depression.[livestrong.com] METHODS: Cough challenge consisted of consecutive inhalations of four solutions having decreasing concentrations of chloride ions (150, 75, 37.5 and 0 mmol/L).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency Secondary to Hypopituitarism

    Cortisol deficiency causes altered metabolism, decreased stress tolerance, and emotional lability.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Salt craving and low-grade fever may also be present.[news-medical.net] Signs of under-replacement are the symptoms of Addison's disease persisting, ie fatigue, postural hypotension, nausea, weight loss, and salt craving.[patient.info]

  • Gitelman Syndrome

    RESULTS: Results of clearance studies were consistent with GS, showing decreased distal fractional chloride reabsorption with only furosemide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 22-year male presented with severe episodic fatigue involving all limbs associated with episodes of sinking, palpitations, salt craving, increased thirst and frequent micturition[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The index patient, her sister, father and two aunts had a history of severe salt cravings, fatigue and tetanic episodes, leading to consumption of large quantities of salt[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Renal Salt-Wasting Syndrome

    The increase in the intravascular volume resulted in a decrease in sodium and chloride levels.[jnaccjournal.org] cravings, dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (dysautonomia), and dehydration.[en.wikipedia.org] Decreased Free Water Clearance Clearance of free water is dependent on normal adrenal and thyroid function.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Bartter Syndrome

    Loss of function of this reabsorption system results in decreased sodium, potassium, and chloride reabsorption in the thick ascending limb, as well as abolishment of the lumen-positive[en.wikipedia.org] craving, constipation, insensitivity to angiotensin II pressor effects, normal blood pressure.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Another hypothesis is the direct tubular destruction in the proximal convoluted tubule, affecting the tubular reabsorption of phosphorus and chloride, resulting in a decrease[medichub.ro]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Cortisol deficiency causes altered metabolism, decreased stress tolerance, and emotional lability.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] This situation may be associated with symptoms suggestive of chronic adrenal insufficiency such as hyperpigmentation, salt craving, and association with autoimmune diseases[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Available data suggest that patients with PAI may be underreplaced with FC as symptoms and signs indicating chronic MC underreplacement, such as salt craving and postural[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
