Hi,
I will take the opportunity to answer this question in his absence.
globulin 1.8l means your level is 1.8 ( low) as per laboratory standard.
A/g ratio denotes ration of albumin & globulin 2.7 (high as per laboratory standard)---this is good, as on calculation your albumin level is around 4.86 ( normal above 4.5)
Carbon dioxide level is 15 ( low) normal range 21 and above---this is possible if you were anxious during blood draw (hence you hyperventilated 'washing away' some carbon dioxide from the body).

Overall, you blood tests look normal.
