Chloride, Urine

Diagnostic Use

Chloride is the most abundant plasma anion. Chloride influences body water distribution in a manner similar to sodium, and is also involved in the maintenance of electrochemical gradients across cell membranes.

Chloride is largely eliminated via the urine. Urine chloride measurement may be helpful when evaluating a patient with a metabolic acid-base disturbance.
