What is Complete Blood count (CBC)?

The Complete Blood Count (CBC) is the group of tests that evaluate the cells that circulate in the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. CBC test evaluates your overall health and also detects a variety of diseases and conditions such as anemia, thalassemia, iron-deficiency, infections, leukemia and many more.

What are the tests included in CBC?

It includes the following tests:

  • Hemoglobin
  • WBC Or white blood count
  • WBC differential blood count
  • Red blood cell count
  • Hematocrit
  • Mean Corpuscular Volume
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration

Why is CBC test done?

Your doctor may order CBC test for many reasons. That may be due to your routine check-up or screening, or as a follow-up check to find the improvement, or just to monitor certain treatments. In other words, it can be done to evaluate the patient's symptoms and overall health.

To diagnose any sort of bacterial infection for instance leukocytosis or high leukocyte count. A low WBC may point to any problem related to the person's bone marrow or as a result of the chemotherapy. Your doctor may also want to know the different components in the WBC to know the response of many treatments.

To find out the range of the red blood cells in the body. These are the cells that deliver the oxygen throughout your body. They also help in carrying carbon dioxide. If your RBC count is too low that means you may have anemia or other condition. This test is also helpful to find out the hemoglobin in our blood which is the protein that holds the oxygen.

Your doctor may also be interested in the Hematocrit test that tells us how much blood is made up of the red blood cells. A low score may tell that you don’t have enough iron, the mineral that helps your body make red blood cells. A high score could be an indication of dehydration or other condition.

The other important component of the CBC is MCV that is Mean Corpuscular Volume. This is the average size of your red blood cells. If they are bigger in the size than the normal size then your MCV will be higher. Low vitamin B 12 or folate levels could be the reason. If your blood cells are smaller, then this could be a type of anemia.

To know the amount of the platelets in the blood that will help the blood to clot which is very important as in case these are low in number then the bleeding will start and won't stop.

To prevent and identify the problems, a CBC may be done in the early pregnancy and sometimes two to three times during pregnancy. The first baseline result of CBC could be compared then to the other results to find out the underline problem.

How is CBC test performed?

For CBC, a health worker may take a sample of your blood by inserting the needle into the vein of your arm, usually at the bend of your elbow. The blood sample is then sent to the laboratory for analysis. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the test.

Normal values of CBC test results:

When you get your CBC reports there may be reference ranges on the reports. These ranges are different in different laboratories. If your results are within this range then they are considered as the normal range but if on the higher or the lower side then may be considered abnormal. Mild anemia is one of the most common reasons for abnormal reports. Normal reports also depend on other factors as age, sex, and also how high you live above the sea level. Below are the general normal ranges:

  • WBC:4,500 to 11,000 cells per microlitre
  • RBC: 4.5 million to 5.9 million cells/mcL for men while 4.1 million to 5.1million cells/mcL for women
  • HB:14 to 17.5 grams per deciliter for men and 12.3 to 15.3 gm/dL for women
  • HCT: 41.5% to 50.4% in men taken as the normal range while 35.9% to 44.6% for women
  • MCV: 80 to 96
  • Platelets: 150,000 to 450,000 /mcL
