How to check your Haematocrit levels with a home finger-prick blood test kit

What Is A Haematocrit Test For?

A Haematocrit test is also known as a Packed Cell Volume test.

Your haematocrit measures how much of your blood is made up of cells and is expressed as a percentage.

Nearly all of the cells in your blood are red blood cells (RBCs).

Are you in the 79.6% with normal results?

What If Haematocrit Test Levels Are High?

What If Haematocrit Test Levels Are High?

The most common cause of increased Packed Cell Volume is dehydration. Following fluid intake - i.e. drinking water - the haematocrit level will return to normal levels.

However, increased haematocrit can indicate that there are too many red cells present in the blood, a condition which is known as polycythaemia.

The additional red blood cells in polycythaemia make the blood thicker. This makes it less able to travel through capillaries and reach your body's tissues. If severe it can lead to blood clots which can be very serious. We recommend you review the guidance here and follow up with a medical professional.

Your haemoglobin and red cell count results in this test panel should also be reviewed, as polycythaemia is likely to also increase their levels.

What If Haematocrit Test Levels Are Low?

What If Haematocrit Test Levels Are Low?

A decreased haematocrit (Packed Cell Volume) indicates anaemia and further testing is required to determine the cause.

Many conditions can result in a low haematocrit including nutritional deficiencies in iron or vitamins, inflammatory conditions, cirrhosis of the liver, bone marrow disorders and more.
