RBC Red Blood Cell Count

The Red Blood Cell Count is a test to find out how many Red Blood Cells (RBC’s) you have.  Also known as an Erythrocyte Count.

RBC’s contain Hemoglobin, which picks up oxygen from your lungs, and carries that to your body’s tissue.

In a normal body this count is regulated.   These cells are produced in the bone marrow via a process and rate called Retic.

If your RBC count is too high or too low you will have symptoms or complications.

Low RBC (Anemic) symptoms may include:
Fatique
Dizziness or Lightheadedness
Headache
Shortness of Breath
Weakness
Pale or washed out skin or appearance

High RBC symptoms may include:
Fatique
Joint Pain
Shortness of Breath
Tenderness of the palms of your hands or soles of the feet
Itching Skin
Restless sleep
