Full Blood Examination

Red Blood Cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues back to the lungs. Other functions are attributed to the Red Blood Cells.

Low levels of Red Blood cells may indicate anaemia, tumours (Cancer), blood disorders, toxicity (poisoning), malnutrition, bleeding, deficiencies in Vitamin B12, Folate or Iron. This test is used in conjunction with other tests to identify any problem definitively.

High levels of Red Blood Cells may indicate some blood disorders, heart disease, tissue hypoxia, some lung diseases.
