Can I Get a CBC Test at AFC Statesville?

Getting sick comes in many different forms, and each of them are unpleasant in their own right. We know you want to feel better as quick as humanly possible, so we make sure we can help by having extensive knowledge and a variety of diagnostic tools at our fingertips.

One of those tools is a state-of-the-art lab that can help identify many different illnesses and conditions by processing various tests right here in our center.

Our AFC Urgent Care Statesville team explains more about this process below and how our lab can help you feel better faster.

What Tests Are Available at AFC?

The most common tests we run are the rapid tests that can detect common illnesses in minutes. We can diagnose the flu, COVID-19, strep throat, RSV or STDs in a single, specialized test, and we can send you on your way with a treatment plan just as fast. In addition, we can also run urinalysis and cultures in our lab to help us diagnose infections.

That’s not all! Our team can even draw your blood and run it through our equipment to test for many different conditions. Your blood can tell a lot about you by the different levels of cells, which is why we often run a CBC, or complete blood count, for our patients. This simple test measures and counts the different kinds of blood cells in your blood and can give us a great starting point when it comes to diagnosing you.

Common CBC Test Results

  • Anemia
  • An infection
  • Immune system disorders
  • Blood diseases

What Does Anemia Feel Like?

Anemia is the most common condition we identify and diagnose by far. In fact, it is actually the most common blood condition in the world! If you are feeling lightheaded, dizzy, or chronically fatigued, come see us for a quick CBC.

Anemia is diagnosed when a CBC test comes back low for red blood cells, which means that your body isn’t producing the proper level like it should. Thankfully, incorporating more iron into your diet is often a quick fix for feeling better and staying well, and we will discuss the best way of going about this together.

Different Ways to Treat Anemia

  • Eat iron-rich foods like lean meat, fish, eggs and dried beans.
  • Consume more folic acid from dark, leafy green vegetables.
  • Increase your vitamin D intake.
  • Take an iron supplement if recommended.
