A Hemogram Test combines both Complete Blood Count (CBC) and Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR).
A doctor may advise it as a routine check-up and to evaluate the overall health. CBC detects health conditions such as leukemia, anemia, and infection, while ESR mainly helps in identifying the occurrence of inflammation in the body.
Hemogram Test can also help diagnose
Abnormal ESR values indicate a blood disorder, such as Polycythemia vera, Sickle cell anemia, Leukocytosis.
An abnormal increase in white blood cells and a moderate ESR indicates pregnancy, mensuration, or anemia.
Abnormal RBC values may indicate Anemia, Hemorrhage, bone marrow disorders, chronic Kidney disease, chronic inflammatory diseases, pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, dehydration, Lung disorders, Polycythemia, Vera, Kidney tumors.
The WBC count helps identify conditions like bacterial, parasitic, viral, allergic infections, or cancer.
Platelets are essential for normal blood clotting. Abnormalities in platelet count may indicate various illnesses such as anemia, cancer, inflammation, or infection.
Hemoglobin is a protein pigment present in the blood which carries oxygen. A low Hb is indicative of anemia.
A blood sample is collected by a trained laboratory professional or pathologist. No fasting is required.
|Blood component||Reference range|
|White blood cells||4500-11,000/mm3|
|Red blood cells||Male: 4.3-5.9 million/mm3
Female: 3.5-5.5 million/mm3
|Hemoglobin||Male: 13.5-17.5 g/dL
Female: 12.0-16.0 g/dL
|Mean corpuscular volume||80-100 µm3|
|Mean corpuscular hemoglobin||25.4-34.6 pg/cell|
|Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration||31%-36% Hb/cell|
The standard reference range for Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) is:
|Men||0-15 millimeters per hour (mm/hr), or 0-20 mm/hr for men older than 50|
|Women||0-20 mm/hr, or 0-30 mm/hr for women older than 50|
The values are only for theoretical reference. The content of this post is to provide general information related to topics relevant to blood diagnostics and can vary depending on altitude.
