    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. :-)
    Jordan_Josephson_MD responded:
    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
