Red blood cells are made in your bone marrow, and are used to transport oxygen throughout your body. Low hematocrit can indicate anemia caused by a vitamin deficiency, blood loss, kidney disease, or bone marrow disorders. Elevated hematocrit can indicate lung disease, heart disease, dehydration, or kidney tumors.
This test is often done as part of a routine wellness exam, or to either screen for anemia or monitor its treatment.
The Hematocrit Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring the percentage of red blood cells.
