FOETAL HAEMOGLOBIN ESTIMATION Test

 

What is the FOETAL HAEMOGLOBIN ESTIMATION Test?

A fetal hemoglobin test is used to determine the quantity of fetal hemoglobin (also known as hemoglobin F or HbF) in the blood of newborns and children (Hgb electrophoresis). It can be tested in adults, but it is most commonly used to determine congenital diseases in children. The predominant hemoglobin component in the fetus' bloodstream is fetal hemoglobin, an alkali-resistant type of hemoglobin. It rapidly declines after birth, leaving just traces in healthy infants and adults. Fetal hemoglobin is one of six forms of hemoglobin that can be detected in the clinical laboratory using the hemoglobin electrophoresis method.

 

Why Done? 

The percentage of total hemoglobin made up of fetal hemoglobin is determined by measuring fetal hemoglobin in the blood of babies and children. This level may assist clinicians in assessing low amounts of normal hemoglobin in red blood cells (anemia) and fetal hemoglobin levels or its hereditary persistence. The thalassemias and sickle cell anemias are inherited disorders that affect hemoglobin production. It can also help doctors diagnose acquired diseases like hemolytic anemia, leukemia, pernicious anaemia, and cancer.
