The full blood count test is a popular test, whose function is to provide information about the numbers of cells in your blood. Your blood consists of three main components, suspended in the fluid of your blood plasma: red blood cells, white blood cells, & platelets. Your red blood cells contain haemoglobin, which is responsible for delivering oxygen throughout your body; white blood cells are a key component of your immune response, protecting you from bacteria, viruses, & fungi; & platelets help your blood to form clots. Abnormal levels of any of these types of cells are crucial information when diagnosing a number of diseases & conditions.

When should I get tested?

The full blood count is regularly recommended for patients who are unwell, & where nutrition, inflammation, infection, anaemia, or bleeding are suspected. Your doctor may recommend that you have this test, or you may choose to have it yourself as a general check-up measure.
