    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    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?

    Hi Helpb and welcome to WebMD, Click here for information on how to interpret these results and be sure to discuss any concerns with your doctor. :-)

    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 DrJ
