What can a blood test tell you about your general health?
Blood Cells (1 Biomarkers)
A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and can detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anemia and leukemia. A full blood count will look at your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Please note that full blood counts can only be done through an in-store appointment and cannot be run on finger prick samples.
Full Blood Count
This test is designed to discover clues in your blood as to why you may be feeling unusually tired or fatigued. It will give you information on on several common things that doctors look for in blood tests that may give physical reasons for tiredness. It includes a full blood count and tests for vitamin D, inflammation, iron levels including ferritin and thyroid function tests.
