2. Why would I need to get a hematocrit test?

A hematocrit test will help your medical provider diagnose a particular condition. It can also help him or her determine how well your body is responding to a specific treatment. Most often, the test is used to determine specifics about anemia, leukemia, dehydration, and other dietary deficiencies. If your physician orders a complete blood count test, the hematocrit test is already included.
