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).
Red Blood Cell Count
Measures the number of red blood cells (erythrocytes). Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen throughout the body.
White Blood Cell Count
Detects the number of white blood cells (leukocytes) in the body, cells that fight off infections and foreign agents that may infect the body.
Measures the number of platelets in the blood, the cell components essential for blood clotting.
Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration
Measures MCHC levels, the average weight of hemoglobin based on the volume of red blood cells.
Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin
Measures MCH levels, the average amount of hemoglobin found in the red blood cells in the body.
Mean Corpuscular Volume
Measures the average size of the red blood cells themselves.
Measures the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component (or plasma) in your blood.
Measures the amount of hemoglobin in the blood,the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells.
Studies show that between 3% to 16% of men can get hypothyroidism, and the risk goes up as you get older. 1
