High chloride blood levels are seen in persons who are recovering from diarrhea. They may also indicate a kidney problem or metabolic acidosis as seen in people suffering from diabetes mellitus.

You should ask your doctor and talk about your worries. A single risen blood parameter often does not say anything. Maybe it is a harmless finding. It depends on the context. What was the reason for the bloodwork? Was is a routine check? Or was it because of a medical condition?
