Low Sodium And Chloride Levels In Blood

Hello all, hope you are enjoying a peaceful Saturday. I have had low sodium/chloride on and off for over a year now. The last test that I had a few weeks ago, the levels were seriously low (low enough to be hospitalized). I did not have any obvious symptoms. I am confused as to why this is happening.
