Regular blood tests are crucial to maintaining good health. By checking for markers of the main components of blood – white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets – we can detect imbalances that may lead to serious health issues. From there, you can receive the right treatment or preventative care needed to maintain your well-being.
Why Is This Test Important?
Whether you have health concerns or are having it as part of your routine check, it is important to be able to effectively monitor or diagnose conditions.
Clients often have a full blood count test done when they’re experiencing different symptoms, where high or low availability of the cells can be the cause. This includes:
Changes in temperature
Changes in appetite
By checking your blood count, it can lead to a diagnosis of anaemia, autoimmune diseases and/or infection among others. If you are experiencing these symptoms, however, and the results are in a normal range, you will know to book follow-up monitoring.

What Are The Blood Cells Responsible For?
Knowing the function of different blood cells can help determine how they affect our bodies. These include:
White blood cells: these are responsible and contribute to your immune system. Your indicators of these cells are typically higher when fighting infection, as your body produces more during illness.
Red blood cells: these are responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs to the remainder of the body and removing carbon dioxide.
Platelets: these are responsible for stopping bleeding. They form together in the event of a damaged blood vessel to stop this.
What Can The Results Determine?
Below is what the high or low markers can determine. It is important to discuss your results with a doctor or medical professional, as not all abnormal results will indicate a long-term health problem. Often further testing over a period of time is necessary to get an official diagnosis.
