Some doctors might order a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) blood test as part of your yearly checkup. It could also be possible that the test is ordered because you could have symptoms of electrolyte imbalances within the body.
The following results of the body having to little CO2 may include the following:
- Kidney disorders
- Addison’s disease
To learn what your results mean, please contact your doctor. Prescription drugs are available that can increase or decrease the amount of Co2 you have in your blood.
