Measures and reports the following:
White Blood Cell (WBC): White blood cells, or leukocytes, function as phagocytes of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Red Blood Cell (RBC): Red blood cells, also called erythrocytes, are cells that circulate in the blood and carry oxygen throughout the body. A relatively stable number of red blood cells are maintained in the circulation by increasing or decreasing the rate of production by the bone marrow.
Hemoglobin: Hemoglobin is the iron-containing protein found in all red blood cells that enables them to bind to oxygen in the lungs and carry it to tissues and organs throughout the body.
Hematocrit: Hematocrit is a measurement of the proportion of the blood that is made up of red blood cells and is dependent on the number of and size of the red blood cells.
MCV: The mean red blood cell volume, mean corpuscular volume or MCV, is an evaluation of the average size of each red blood cell.
MCH: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) is a calculation of the average amount of hemoglobin inside a single red blood cell.
MCHC: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) is a calculation of the average amount of hemoglobin in the RBCs compared to the average size of the RBCs.
RDW: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a numerical measure of the size variability of circulating red blood cells.
Platelets: Platelets are very small cells found in the blood and are essential for normal blood clotting.
I have been a daily pot smoker for 20 years. I have quit now for 24 days and plan on shaving my entire body and attemp to grow all new clean hair. My question, as a heavy smoker how long should i wait before i shave? Secondly, i shave my head and will likely have to have my sample taken from my arm pit, chest, arm, or leg hair. Is there a different waiting period for that. I can grow a beard out thay long and may take that route. Btw you are freaking awesome for helping people that are turning things around and doesnt want the past to haunt them.
