Description

A CBC (complete blood count) No Differential/Platelet test is a common blood test that can provide important information about a person’s overall health. The CBC measures different components of blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelets. The test helps your doctor diagnose and assess a variety of medical conditions. It is usually ordered when a person is perform screening tests or needs to monitor a medical condition. Red blood cells (RBCs) help carry oxygen to the body’s tissues. The RBC count indicates how many RBCs are present and can help to diagnose conditions such as anemia or infections. White blood cells (WBCs) help defend against infections. The WBC count indicates if a person has an infection, inflammation, or a high risk of developing a serious condition. The hemoglobin and hematocrit measurements provide information about the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. A low value can indicate risk for various disorders. Platelet count assesses the ability of the blood to clot properly and is useful for diagnosing or monitoring blood diseases, such as leukemia and other disorders. A low platelet count can cause problems with clotting, while a high platelet count can cause a greater risk for blood clots.
