I was wondering if anyone else has had this show up on blood work--elevated bicarbonate levels?  My dr is monitoring my electrolytes and they are all normal except for the bicarbonate levels, which are consistenly elevated.  Im in recovery and though my weight is still low im eating much better, yet these things don't budge. When i have looked on the internet for info they dont even seem related to ED in anyway.  My dr. doesn't explain them at all. Does anyone know what gives with this? Is it related to not having enough stomach acid or something?

ANYBODY!!!! ????????  Doesn't anyone who has had an ED know about this?

Hedgren do you know what causes this???  And what the symptoms/ramificiations are?  CAn it be alleviated by taking Betaine?
