This learning center was created with the aim to inform people about blood tests. People normally do at least one blood test per year, however the majority of them do not know which components of the blood are tested, i.e. leukocyte, lymphocytes, platelets, cholesterol, etc. They may not even know the functions they perform in the body or what it means to have either high or low levels.
Our goal is to list as much information on our website as possible for everyday people to understand about blood tests and all that they involve. Just remember, any information listed here should not be used to diagnose yourself or be used as medical advice. We are just listing general information with no medical value. As with any medical problem, you should consult your doctor for any diagnosis and for any treatment.
