Red Blood Cell Count

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

A red cell count is a blood test that informs you the number of red blood cells you have. The amount of oxygen that's delivered to your body's cells depends on the variety of red blood cells you have and exactly how well they work. A RBC count is usually executed as part of a complete blood cell count. Women usually have a lower RBC count than men, and the degree of red cell tends to decrease with age. A low RBC count can show a vitamin B12, folate or b6 shortage.
