Hemogram reference values

    The reference values ​​of the complete blood count generally vary according to the patient's sex and age, however, it is also possible to observe differences in the values ​​depending on the laboratory where the collection was made.

    The blood count is used to evaluate certain blood aspects such as the number of red blood cells, leukocytes and platelets, being a good way to identify the presence of infections, excess iron or anemia, for example.

    There is usually a sign of infection when there is an increase in leukocytes and there are signs of allergy when there is an increase in eosinophils, but it is important that the interpretation of the blood count is made by the doctor who ordered the test because it must take into account the symptoms that the individual has.
