A CBC (Complete Blood Count) looks at important parameters of your blood including hemoglobin level, white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. The Ferritin, Iron, and Total Iron Binding Capacity tests work together to indicate if you have an iron deficiency, which is the most common form of anemia. The reticulocyte count can help determine the cause and type of anemia. Finally, this panel will determine any Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid deficiency, often the reason for the onset of anemia.
The Anemia Panel includes the following tests:
- Complete Blood Count
- Iron and Total Binding Capacity
- Reticulocyte Count
- Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid Tests
