Catching a blood disorder or disease early on can sometimes be the difference between life and death. Some tests, like a complete blood count (CBC), can help find things early on.

What Is Blood? What Does Blood Do?:
http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/196001.php

“Blood is a combination of plasma (watery liquid) and cells that float in it. It is a specialized bodily fluid that supplies essential substances and nutrients, such as sugar, oxygen, and hormones to our cells, and carries waste away from those cells, this waste is eventually flushed out of the body in urine, feces, sweat, and lungs (carbon dioxide).”

Complete Blood Count:

“The CBC is a very common test. Many people have a CBC performed when they have a routine health examination. If a person is healthy and has results that are within normal limits, then that person may not require another CBC until their health status changes or until their healthcare provider feels that it is necessary.”

Anemia:

“Anemia is the most common blood disorder, and according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, it affects more than 3 million Americans.”

“Leukemia is a type of cancer found in your blood and bone marrow and is caused by the rapid production of abnormal white blood cells.”

  1. Please it is my humble to you to make a video on how blood test reveals the presence of a disease or infection

  2. Thanks for this video. I have to get labs drawn often – To monitor my Thyroid level, iron, and white blood count.

  3. I love Dexter as well! I wanted to be a neurologist in the third grade or a neurosurgeon studied it on my own but had to become an accountant as I did not want the student loans for med school bad enough to become an accountant, managerial not CPA.

  4. Hi Trace, I liked very series of DNews and Test Tube Plus discussed by you and other members. I really appreciate your efforts.
    Talking about new ideas, since you have covered most of the aspects of Blood Disorder and basics, please try to make a video on what a person can do in his/her daily life to take care of his blood and make it more healthy, for instance discuss about diet necessary for good blood, habits etc. I am very sure that people (your humble viewers) would love and appreciate watching it. Thanks Trace!

  5. Could you please do a video series on neurological disorders such as MS and Alzheimer's my mum has has MS for 36 years now and there has been some amazing new research into it about vitamin d or lack there of being one of the environmental factors and there's also some really interesting new medications to combat MS such as the one my mum is on called beta interferon which is a disease modifying drug. I had to learn to mix it up and inject her with it because of all her shaking and not being able to grip. She has been on it for 2 years now she injects it herself. She can even write again and hold a knife and fork, she is honestly like a new woman. She is able to walk now whereas when I was a lad she was wheelchair and house bound. She has even joined a Pilates group especially for sufferers of MS. The difference is truly amazing.

  6. working as a phlebotomist currently at the forefront of when your health starts to diminish.

  7. Haha my blood is great! Im a 20 year old long distance athlete, I've never smoked or drank and have no HIV or STI. I also rarely get sick, like once every two years maybe. And the big one, I'm type O blood

  8. My grandma had acute leukemia when she was in her 80s, and received chemotherapy to treat it.
    She didn't lose hardly any of her hair,
    And she died last year,
    12 years after beating leukemia, just from old age.

    Go grandma, you were a badass! 💞

  9. Hey! Who's dirty??
    BTW it's not only about killing the bad blood cells, it's also about replacing them with good ones, and I don't mean transfusions but rather stem cell transplants. Might be something to dive into, it's super interesting when you suddenly change blood type! Or start to age backwards…

  10. Please do a series on epilepsy, people never realise how much there is too it, they just get freaked out by the seizures and I am tired of explaining. There can be episodes on types of epilepsy, types of seizures and the dangers associated, diagnostic methods, cultural and religious beliefs (i.e. witches, demons, exorcisms), and history of treatment methods. Thank you.

  11. Thank you TestTube Plus for all the random fun knowledge!! 😀

    I think some episodes that people might not know they want are wrapped up in psychology. Perhaps give the people some Operant Conditioning and see how they feel about it, eh? 🙂
