Dear colleagues

Just wondering what this could mean - I am unable to find anything with unlocked/locked.

Le ionogramme urinaire retrouve une natrémie non verrouillée en faveur d'une insuffisance rénale organique.

Any help would be appreciated.

Reference: verrouiller

Reference information:
Le rein cardiaque réabsorbe presque tout le Na filtré ; il "verrouille" le Na avec une natriurèse basse et un bilan sodé positif . Il y a aussi un défaut d'excrétion de l'eau libre."

It seems that verrouiller refers to "locking" sodium excretion (be it physiological or compensatory) rather than "locking" natriemia.
Does that help?
