CBC with D-dimer Test: A comprehensive test package for complete blood analysis

Complete Blood Count Test or (CBC Test)

A complete blood count (CBC), is a test that evaluates overall health and diagnoses a wide range of illnesses existing in the human body. The test measures 24 parameters, apart from the D-dimer test, in a single blood sample.

This blood test measures the following components in a blood sample:

  • Oxygen carrying red blood cells or RBCs
  • Infection fighting white blood cells or WBCs and also WBC differential count
  • Quantity of Hemoglobin
  • Hematocrit or HCT (percentage of RBCs in the total volume of blood)
  • Platelet count which helps in blood clotting and the mean platelet volume (MPV)
  • Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) and Haemoglobin
  • MCHC or Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration
  • Red cell distribution width (RDW)

Complete blood count normal ranges chart

Any low or high values of cell counts in a complete blood count test may cause an abnormal condition that may need further evaluation or other diagnostic tests. Here, an important normal value range is given for some main blood components:

Blood ComponentsRanges and Values
White blood cell count (WBC)4,300 – 10,800 cells/cm (cells per cubic millimeter)
Red blood cell count (RBC)4.2 – 5.9 million cells/cmm
Platelet count150,000 – 400,000 cells/cmm
Hemoglobin  Male: 13.2-16.6 gm/dL (grams per deciliter) Female:11.6-15 gm/dL
Hematocrit  Male: 38.3-48.6 % (percent) Female: 35.5-44.9 %  

Complete blood counts help a physician in many ways. A doctor may recommend a CBC blood test for many reasons, like:

  • Screening for certain diseases
  • Detecting chronic or acute infection
  • Monitoring specific medication or treatments
  • Detecting the cause of any illness based on the signs and symptoms
  • As a part of routine health, checkup to assess the overall health condition of an individual

What is the D-dimer Test?

The CBC test also includes the D-dimmer test in “Redcliffe Labs”, specifically designed to diagnose pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and stroke in an individual. This special test helps in finding out the blood clotting disorders in the body. A D-dimer test can also be needed if the individual is experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Difficult breathing
  • Chest pain and dry cough
  • Leg pain
  • Swelling and redness of legs
  • Abnormally high heartbeat

How does the D-dimer test help?

D-dimer with CBC helps a lot because the D-dimer test detects blood clots while the CBC test helps in diagnosing other blood-related abnormalities like anemia or blood cancer. Therefore, both the tests are related to blood and in the same blood sample, they offer dual benefits.

A CBC test means complete counting of blood cells. It is usually done by a technician or phlebotomist who takes a small blood sample from the arm. The test is fairly quick and painless. Sometimes special instructions are needed, like overnight fasting before the test, if it is added as a part of other tests, depending upon the doctor’s recommendation.
