What is Complete Blood Count (CBC)

A complete blood count or CBC is a blood test that measures different components of your blood. It is also called Hemogram or CBC with Differential.

Why is a CBC performed?

A CBC is recommended by health professionals to determine your overall health or to screen for various diseases/conditions like anemia, blood disorders, cancer, inflammation or infection. 

What is the purpose of a CBC?

The purpose of a CBC is to thoroughly evaluate the cells that circulate in your blood. It is done by measuring various parameters, counting cells and evaluating the physical features of some of these cells. 
Under normal circumstances cells are produced and then mature in bone marrow before being released into the bloodstream. Three cells that a regular CBC test evaluates are:

  1. RBCs Red Blood Cells
  2. WBCs White Blood Cells
  3.  Platelets

When is a CBC ordered?

A CBC is a very common blood test. It is either ordered as a part of routine checkup, to monitor an already existing disease or to evaluate any bodily symptoms that indicate a disease. These symptoms include:

  • Fevers
  • Frequent infections 
  • Fatigue 
  • Weakness and tiredness
  • Red spots on the skin
  • Abdominal pain due to enlarged liver or spleen
