Complete Blood Count
This CBC blood test is the first step to detecting illnesses that can affect your overall health.
Your blood is perhaps the most essential substance in your body—transporting life-sustaining nutrients, hormones and oxygen all while carrying waste products for removal through the lungs, liver and kidneys. Blood is also your body's most crucial defense against fighting infections.
This complete blood count (CBC) test counts the cells that circulate in your blood, which can provide valuable information to you and your healthcare provider about your overall health. This full blood panel may also be a first step to detecting health conditions such as anemia, inflammation, blood disorders and infection. This panel measures your red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets.
Note: A CBC test is not a diagnostic test and cannot confirm any specific illness or disease. Further testing and medical consultation may be required to determine the cause of abnormal results.
No special preparation.
