Bicarbonate Blood Test & Carbon Dioxide (co2) Levels In Blood

Bicarbonate is a form of carbon dioxide (CO2), a gas waste left when your body burns food for energy. Bicarbonate belongs to a group of electrolytes , which help keep your body hydrated and make sure your blood has the right amount of acidity. Too much or too little bicarbonate can be a sign of a number of conditions, including diarrhea , liver failure , kidney disease , and anorexia . A bicarbonate test measures how much carbon dioxide is in your blood. Its usually part of a larger electrolyte test that tells your doctor how much sodium, potassium , and chloride is in your body. They may do this test as part of a regular checkup, or to try to find out why you dont feel well. Your doctor might check the CO2 levels in your blood if you have: If youre being treated for liver , lung , or digestive conditions, your doctor might check your bicarbonate levels regularly to see if your therapy or medication is working. A doctor or nurse will take a sample of your blood from your arm with a needle. Let your doctor know if you take any medications or supplements , because they can affect the results. So can eating grapefruits, tangerines, and other fruits high in acid. The test uses only th Continue reading >>

    So the last few days I have been sleeping really well. Barely got up, was able to sleep in the morning which is something I have always done, I am a night person and I like it that way. However, while I was not cheating, between all the supplements I have been taking for some aches and pains and the extra nuts I have been snacking on I suspected I was not in ketosis. Yesterday I skipped lunch unintentionally and started what is now a 40 hour fast. Last night my sleep went back to how it is on keto/fasting. I woke up several times to use the facilities and this morning woke up an hour earlier than usual and could not go back to sleep (no matter how much I wanted to). I do not feel refreshed but I do feel alert. On the flip side I usually fall asleep earlier than usual with keto.

    I have always had a bit of a delayed circadian issue but I like it and am used to it. When on keto it seems to fix it? Is that possible?

  2. David_Driver

    I am going to have to give up on Keto. I have had insomnia for almost a year and I discovered that when I cheat I sleep all night. This week I have bumped up the carbs significantly and I have slept all the way through every night. If you google low carb and insomnia you will find that it is fairly common.

  3. Loulou

    Perhaps that is why my insomnia has been so bad recently. Only slept 4 hours last night. However, if I eat more than 20 grams carbs I immediately put on 1 or 2 lbs over night which is a no no for me,

There's now a fifth more carbon in the atmosphere than there was just in the year 2000 and the international energy agency talks about carbon capture and storage, CCS in the jargon, as the most important single new technology to prevent global warming. Adam Shaw visits a company who are not just capturing and storing CO2 but are using CO2 to create a synthetic fuel.

Serum Total Carbon Dioxide - Clinical Methods - Ncbi Bookshelf

We measure serum total CO2 content in lieu of measuring serum bicarbonate. The total CO2 content includes the serum bicarbonate as well as available forms of carbon dioxide (i.e., dissolved CO2 and carbonic acid). Generally, the serum bicarbonate comprises about 95% of the total CO2 content; thus we can use this measurement as an excellent estimator of serum bicarbonate. The total CO2 content normally equals 23 to 30 mEq/L of serum. Most laboratories use an autoanalyzer for measuring total CO2 content. This method measures the amount of CO2 liberated from the sample after adding a strong acid. The CO2 diffuses across a dialysis membrane. A bicarbonate-carbonate buffer solution containing an indicator dye absorbs the CO2. A colorimeter then evaluates the new color, which it converts to a total CO2 measurement. Two potential problems exist with this method: (1) the color reagent may change with time, thus the laboratory must frequently check standardization curves; (2) exposure of the sample to air will allow loss of CO2, as much as 6 mEq/L in an hour. Arterial blood gas reports generally include a bicarbonate value. The blood gas machine measures pH and pCO2 and then calculates a b Continue reading >>

    Hi Keto-ers, i'm in ketosis, have been back in it for 3 weeks after a break for a vacation, and quite frankly i effing love this diet :)
    however today i slept in for work, and didn't have breakfast or make a lunch, yet i have had no hunger pains, been drinking my 500ml water per hour and just had a pepperami and a babybel.
    one of my friends is telling me how my metabolism must be overly slow for me not to have a hunger pang... and that this means if i have a kebab or anything like that it will show pretty quickly.
    how can i defend this diet of the gods??

    General public perception of "slowing your metabolism" or "going into starvation mode" is bullshit, that is the #1 thing to keep in mind.
    In most people, the metabolism does not substantially change until around 1 week of fasting. You can skip meals, load up on meals, whatever you want - your metabolism will not slow down.
    What's happening here is you're solidly in ketosis. The current trend is to get your energy from carbohydrates, becoming glucose in the blood (blood sugar) and powering things that way. Glucose is short lived in a working body, which means that you'll get a burst of energy, and then it will go away. This is why you feel a sugar crash sometimes, and why people recommend eating 5 small meals instead of 3 big ones. As a result of this, your body will release horomones triggering hunger as your blood sugar drops.
    In a state of ketosis, your body is burning fat and releasing ketones. Once you've adapted to using ketones as your primary form of energy (I believe I've seen 2-3 weeks quoted for this), your body has a constant supply of ready energy, as it can burn fat as long as you have some. In this case, your body does not need to eat as much, and will release the hunger horomone less often. As long as you're getting the nutrients you need (which come from meats and vegetables much more easily than grains), you don't need to worry about forcing yourself to eat if you're not hungry.
    tl;dr: Your body is currently an efficient fat-burning machine, and that's why you're not hungry.

    thanks for the replies! my next question... the little amount i eat, is this dangerous in terms of slowing down weightloss? i always thought i should always have a breakfast? but i find myself forcing myself to eat it.
