CBC – Complete Blood Count

A complete blood count (CBC) provides important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A CBC can help a health professional evaluate symptoms (such as weakness, fatigue, or bruising) and diagnose conditions (such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders).
A CBC test usually includes:
White blood cell (WBC) count. More here.
