Dear All and Dear Dr Seifter.
I have one more question for you.
In your article you present the case of a 80-year-old man with congestive heart failure who develops hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis after receiving furosemide. In your opinion, may chloride supplements avoid the risk of diuretics-induced metabolic alkalosis?
