Full Blood Count (FBC)

Posted in on

A simple blood test that looks at parts of your blood including your red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), platelets, haemoglobin and haematocrit. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients through your body; white blood cells are immune cells (B cells and T cells); haemoglobin and haematocrit are part of red blood cells, that, respectively, exchange iron for energy to cells and the amount (number) of RBC’s. Your doctor will tell you when these measurements are good or need further checking or medical treatment and management.
