Red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen around your body and are continuously being created within your bone marrow to replace cells lost through bleeding or cell aging.
Some conditions within the body can lead to excess cells being created, or too few. Too many red blood cells can lead to problems such as blurry or impaired vision, headaches and migraines or an enlarged spleen. Too few, and you could experience anaemia, fatigue, dizziness and heart palpitations.
White blood cells in your body are integral for fighting against infections and protecting you from harmful germs or bacteria entering your system.
There are 5 different types of white blood cells, all of which are created within the stem cells of your bone marrow, and all of which perform a different function within your immune system to identify and protect you from microbes, parasites and bacteria.
Our test will check your red and white blood cells to ensure you have the right levels in your body and identify any issues with the health of your blood.
