A complete hemogram test is done to measure red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. This test may also be done in routine checkup or even to check anaemia, keep an eye on blood condition, or to find reasons for fever, weakness, bruising.
A complete hemogram can help the doctor in many ways:-
Test preparation and Sample required
No specialised training is needed for complete hemogram. Although if you’re using some supplements or the patient have any allergies, tell the doctor about them.
A blood sample is taken from the arm. It just takes some time.
What does the result mean?
When the report is out, there will be two sections on it – “reference range” and another will be the result. If the result is in the range of reference range, then the result is normal. And if the result is high or low then the reference range, they’re abnormal.
Diabetes is a sickness in which blood glucose or blood sugar level becomes too high. Without ongoing, careful management, it can increase the risk of dangerous diseases like heart disorder and stroke.
In some cases, forms of diabetes are also found in a child.
Millions of people are still heedless that they have diabetes, because there may be no sign.
The electrolytes that are present in the human body are:-
Electrolytes help the human body to perform body functions efficiently.
Sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate are some electrolytes that are measured by the doctor.
Iron is required to make haemoglobin in the human body. Deficiency of iron can lead to a low level in red blood cells. And if someone’s body does not have enough amount of haemoglobin, body tissues and muscles won’t work effectively.
Lipids are fats and fat like structure. A lipid panel measures the level of some specific lipids in our body. This lipid profile includes:-
Thyroid function test is a sequence of a blood test that measures how thyroid gland is working. This profile will cover the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone test.
TSH can detect the disorders even if the symptoms are not there. High TSH level can mean that thyroid gland is not making the required amount of thyroid hormone.
The vitamin profile covers three tests:- folate test, vitamin B-12 test, 25-OH vitamin D(total) test.
Vitamin B-12 test measures levels of vitamin B-12 and is also known as Cobalamin. Vitamin B-12 plays a critical part in the normal functioning of the nervous system, metabolism, and in the formation of red blood cells.
