From the expert
The Full Blood Count (FBC) blood test, also known as a Complete Blood Count (CBC) or Haemotology profile is an extremely common test and is routinely used by doctors to examine the health of your red, white and clotting blood cells.
Red cells are vital for transporting oxygen around the body and anything which affects their ability do so can lead to symptoms, including fatigue. A full blood count will look at the size, shape and volume of your red blood cells and will help assess whether you are suffering from anaemia, either caused by a deficiency in iron or vitamin B12.
Your white blood cells are key to your body's immune system and can indicate whether you are suffering from, or have recently suffered from an injury or infection.
If you believe you are at risk of developing diabetes, you can test your blood sugar levels with our simple finger-prick, Diabetes (HbA1C) Blood Test.
Why take this test?
- Check your red cells for anaemia.
- Screen for abnormalities in your blood.
- Examine your white cell count for infection or inflammation.
- Understand your blood status if you have a family history of blood disorders.
