Blood Analysis

Blood Analysis

Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Complete Blood Count (CBC)

A Complete Blood Count (CBC) is a blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a variety of ailments including anaemia, infection and leukemia. A CBC is a study of the following: Red blood cells (carry oxygen); white blood cells (fight infection); haemoglobin (oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells); hematocrit (proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma, in your blood); and platelets (help with blood clotting). Anaemia is a condition where the haemoglobin is found to be lower than normal and can result in low energy, fatigue, heart palpitations, shortness of breath and can lead to heart problems.

ESR
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate

The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), or Sed rate, is a blood test that can reveal inflammatory activity in your body.  Inflammation is thought to be a symptom of a considerable number of health issues and diseases. The ESR test can assist in analysing unexplained fever, some types of arthritis and symptoms that affect your muscles.

ABO Grouping and RH Type
Testing for blood type (ABO) and also Rhesus (Rh) factor. Rh factor is an inherited protein found on the surface of red blood cells. If your blood has the protein, you're Rh positive, while you are Rh negative if your blood lacks it. It is most common to be Rh positive. Having an Rh negative blood type is not an illness and usually does not affect your health. However, it can affect your pregnancy. Your pregnancy needs special attention if the mother is Rh negative and the baby's father is Rh positive.

Iron & TIBC
Iron

Iron deficiency can be a cause of anaemia. "Iron-deficiency anaemia" can be caused by poor diet, leading to low iron intake and is fairly common around the globe. Anaemia is a condition where the haemoglobin is found to be lower than normal and can result in low energy, fatigue, heart palpitations, shortness of breath and can lead to heart problems. Identification of iron deficiency can help guide tweaks in lifestyle, diet and supplement taking that can help to address this issue.

Creatinine
Creatinine

Creatinine levels are used to determine kidney or renal function. Creatinine is a waste product produced by the body resulting primarily from muscle metabolism. A blood test will measure the level of creatinine in your blood stream. Healthy kidneys filter creatinine (and other waste products) from your blood and the waste is excreted from the body in urine. High levels of creatinine found in the bloodstream is an indication that one may be suffering from kidney disease or dysfunction.
