The complete haemogram test consists of various parameters like HB, TC, DC, Platelet, and ESR. It serves as a comprehensive screening tool. The haemogram test aids in the early detection and management of various diseases. Regular monitoring of these parameters will help you stay proactive in maintaining your well-being. These complex abbreviations hold the key to detecting underlying health issues and assessing your overall well-being.

  • HB, short for Hemoglobin, that carries oxygen throughout our body,
  • TC, or Total Count, refers to the total number of white blood cells in our body. These defend us against infections and diseases.
  • DC, short for Differential Count, provides a breakdown of the different types of white blood cells present in our body.
  • Platelets are essential for blood clotting,
  • ESR is the abbreviation for Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate. It is a measure of how quickly red blood cells settle at the bottom of a test tube.


Your healthcare provider may recommend a complete haemogram test in case you exhibit symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain
  • Frequent infections
  • Excessive bleeding or bruising
  • Joint pain and swelling
  • Severe headaches or migraines
  • Fever and chills
  • Abnormalities in menstrual cycles (for females)


To perform the complete haemogram test, a small amount of whole blood is collected using an EDTA tube. The blood sample is usually obtained through a venipuncture procedure by a trained healthcare professional. The patient's arm is cleaned with an antiseptic and a needle is inserted into a vein to draw the blood into the tube. The collected sample is then sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Once the blood sample reaches the laboratory, it undergoes various analyses to determine the levels of haemoglobin, total and differential leucocyte counts, platelet count, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate. These tests provide insights into different aspects of the blood composition and help in identifying any abnormalities or diseases present.

In case of a positive diagnosis or abnormal results, it is important to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and appropriate treatment. Depending on the specific condition detected, treatment options may include medication, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, or further diagnostic tests as advised by the healthcare provider. Timely intervention and management play a crucial role in improving outcomes and minimizing complications associated with certain diseases.
