had blood work done wondering about result
Hello all, Im not sure Im in the right section, but I didnt know where else to check. I had some blood work done and I am curious about a result. My Carbon Dioxide test came back at 20 L  Its saying it should be between 25 and 35 mmol/L. I am going to talk to my doctor about it, I just want to know what to ask and just be a bit informed before my appt. Does anyone know what it means or what may be the cause? Any help , even if its just to direct me to a different forum would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hi!
A lower than normal CO2 levels could be due to recent diarrhea or ongoing diarrhea as seen in IBS etc, Addison disease, acidosis (lacticacidosis, ketoacidosis, metabolic acidosis), poisoning (ethyl glycol or methanol) or due to increased blood salicylate levels caused by drug overdose (eg. aspirin). Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
