Small and large blood count – what does that mean?

The so-called erythrocyte indices MCH, MCV and MCHC are also included. These values ​​are measured as standard during a  blood test known as a small blood count.

The full blood count also includes a differential blood count that provides information about the granulocytes, lymphocytes and monocytes.

What laboratory values ​​are there?

In addition to the blood count, many other values ​​​​in the blood and urine can be determined. These include ferritin,  iron , uric acid,  blood sugar , cholesterol,  CRP  or TSH. These and other laboratory results make it possible to assess the condition of the thyroid, liver, kidneys or other organs, to identify inflammation or to diagnose diseases. Furthermore, a  stool examination can also provide  information about the health in many cases.

Medical advice is irreplaceable

Too high or too low values ​​are not always alarming, but should be medically clarified. The interpretation should always take into account the individual state of health of the person concerned. It is therefore always the treating doctor who decides whether treatment needs to be initiated.
