Blood Test-Low Carbon Dioxide
helpb posted:
I recently attended a health fair at work and all of my blood work was good with one note that my carbon dioxide was low. What does that mean? Should I be concerned?

Dear Help B:

If everything else was normal this may have been a lab error. I would not be overly concerned but I would mention this to your primary care physician who will have a lot more knowledge about your other blood work and your history than what I have.

Good Luck
