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.

Reason for checking: I suppose the answer would vary depending on why it was checked. If there were certain symptoms or problems then the tests need to be analyzed in that context.

37 weeks pregnant with bad smelling/tasting burps (like rotten eggs) why??

37 weeks pregnant with bad smelling/tasting burps (like rotten eggs) why??

Indigestion: By 37 weeks, the uterus is pressing on vital organs like the stomach. Belching or burping is a sign that there's not enough room in the stomach for the size of the meal you've eaten. If you have eaten foods that contain sulfur compounds such as garlic, onion, leeks etc., those foods may sit in your stomach and ferment for a while. Hence the rotten egg taste and smell. Try changing your diet. ...Read more
