When to go for this test?
You should go for a bicarbonate test if the symptoms of electrolyte imbalance start to get visible in your body. Some of those symptoms are,
- Prolonged vomiting
- Breathing complexions
No specific preparations are required to go for this test.
A certain amount of blood will be fetched from your vein, on which the test will be performed.
If the bicarbonate level is lower or higher than the normal level, then it means that the person’s body is facing problems to maintain its acid-base balance. However, it is always recommended to have a brief discussion with the medical experts about the test result. The bicarbonate test cost is truly reasonable in most cities.
