HCT Hematocrit Testing

An HCT is a blood test given to determine what percentage of your blood volume is made of red blood cells.


Someone with a low hematocrit is considered anemic.  This may be the result of blood loss from injury or surgery.  Anemia may also result from bone marrow problems, sickle cell anemia, and nutritional deficiency (such as a lack of iron or vitamin B-12 in your diet).  A high hematocrit may be the result of smoking, dehydration, living at a high altitude, or lung disease.


The HCT is often done as part of a complete blood count, for situations including:

  • Diagnosis of anemia or polycythemia

  • Monitoring anemia treatments

  • Monitoring ongoing bleeding

  • Recovery from dehydration
