Blood work

I have been diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease and recently I had something to happen to me and my cardiologist ran a lot of blood work. The carbon dioxide was high, 33, per lab sheet and the alkaline phosphatase, 145. What does this mean? I didn't have these results when I went to the cardiologist.

ALWAYS be proactive in your health care and treatment. Most important, communicate/interact well with your doctors.

Take care,
