LP15441-6     Bicarbonate

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Bicarbonate
  Description: Bicarbonate (total CO2) is an electrolyte and typically measured along with other electrolytes (e.g. sodium, potassium, and chloride) to detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances. Low bicarbonate levels may occur in patients with Addison's disease, chronic diarrhea, diabetic ketoacidosis, and kidney disease. Increased levels may be seen in patients with severe vomiting, cushing syndrome, and metabolic alkalosis. Various drugs may also increase or decrease biocarbonate levels. [Lab Tests Online: co2]
