The blood test is used to investigate your overall health and help diagnose many illnesses and disorders, such as leukaemia, anaemia, and infections.
A full blood count test measures several aspects and features of your blood, including:
An underlying medical condition may be indicated should your test reveal abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts. A result of an abnormal amount of cell counts usually results in further tests or investigations being recommended.
There are several reasons why a Full Blood Count Test would be recommended. These include:
It is important to note that a full blood count test is usually not a definitive diagnostic test. If the blood test reveals an abnormality in the results, then a doctor will likely recommend further testing or investigation.
Should you be otherwise healthy, results often fall out of the average range and will not be a cause for concern or require further testing. However, if you are undergoing treatment, show various symptoms, or are at elevated risk of some illnesses, you may be referred for further testing.
You do not need to prepare for a full blood count test.
A full blood count is a usual blood test where your health care provider will take a small blood sample. The process only lasts around five minutes.
