Complete Blood Count (CBC)

Smart Blood Panel

$25.00

Want a clear view of your health? It begins in your blood.

Your blood is perhaps the most essential substance in your body—transporting life-sustaining nutrients, hormones, and oxygen throughout, while also carrying waste products to be removed through the lungs, liver, and kidneys. It’s also the body’s most crucial defense mechanism for fighting infections.

A complete blood count (CBC) counts the cells that circulate in your blood, which can provide valuable information to you and your doctor about your overall health (and may be useful to your doctor in detecting disorders such as anemia, inflammation, and infection).
