A blood test used to assess overall health.
Several features of the blood are measured during a Complete Blood Count:
Platelets that assist in blood clotting
Red Blood Cells that carry oxygen around the body
Hemoglobin which is part of the Red Blood Cell
White Blood Cells which assist when the body has an infection
Hematocrit measures the volume % of RBC (Red Blood Cells) in the blood.
One of the reasons that the CBC is a great indicator of overall health is that an increase or decrease in cell counts can indicate an underlying medical problem. It can give you or your health provider a heads up that further investigation is required.
