Lab tests come in many varieties and most are ordered under a group name, for example CBC (complete blood count
) has tests for many of the major blood
components such as RBCs, hemoglobin, WBCs, etc. All these tests are important to evaluate the state of a person's immune system and the efficiency of oxygen transport amoung many other things.
Another group of tests that are of particular interest to HCV patients are the Liver Function Tests (LFTs).
