The RBC (red blood cell) count is the number of red blood cells present. It can vary considerably, and a marginally low or high health screening reading may not imply a problem. Significantly reduced numbers are associated with anaemia (a deficiency in red cell production, or excessive loss of blood), and very high numbers are seen in polycythaemia (a condition which can be caused by smoking, living at altitude or just because the bone marrow makes too many red cells).
The red blood cell count is included in all three levels of our health screens.
Choosing a health screen on-line can be a difficult decision, but it is also an important one. We make the choice easy for you by arranging for a Blue Horizon approved Registered Nurse to visit you at home or at your workplace. Conducting only Clinically validated tests our nurse will take all the blood and measurements necessary for one of our Doctors to issue you with an extremely comprehensive 25 page health report sent by special delivery to you within 7 days of your nurse attending.
Do not attend a health screening this year, let our health screen ATTEND YOU!
