My childs potassium, alkaline phosphate, carbon dioxide are low on blood test. Test was done due to my lupus & hypothyroidism. What does this mean?

In brief: Hard to say

Random test results reported with no history or exam findings make it impossible to decide if they are important or not.
The normal values vary sometimes by age and we don't know if the report used proper kid or adult standards.You should review these with whoever ordered them.
