Details
Who should take the test?

Our Hematocrit Test is recommended for individuals seeking a comprehensive assessment of their blood health. Hematocrit, a pivotal measure in blood health, provides essential information about the proportion of red blood cells (RBCs) in the bloodstream. This parameter is crucial for assessing the blood’s ability to carry oxygen throughout the body.

Therefore, anyone interested in understanding their overall health and specific medical conditions, such as anemia, hydration status, or heart and lung diseases, should consider taking this test.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Hematocrit, a blood test measuring the proportion of red blood cells to total blood volume, offers crucial insights into overall health. Elevated levels may indicate dehydration or polycythemia, increasing the risk of blood clots. Conversely, low levels often signify anemia, leading to symptoms like fatigue and shortness of breath.

Considering factors such as age and sex is important when interpreting hematocrit values, as levels differ between men and women.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
