Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

The doctor who ordered them will be in the best position to interpret them. ...Read more

One concern is, however, that this may be strep throat, which can produce abdominal pain, and that should be treated with antibiotics. See your doctor. ...Read more

I would recommend you go to labor and delivery to be monitored for fetal heart tones, contractions, blood pressure and urine protein. Back ache could be common late pregnancy discomfort or fetal head position occiput posterior (face up). ...Read more
