This test measures hematocrit, the percentage of your blood that is made up of red blood cells.
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.
The Hematocrit test has no fasting requirements.
