Experiencing symptoms like anemia, jaundice, or
recurrent blood transfusion reactions? A Coombs Test may be necessary. This
blood test, also known as direct or indirect antiglobulin test, detects
antibodies that target red blood cells. It is used to diagnose conditions such
as autoimmune hemolytic anemia and hemolytic disease of the newborn. Timely
medical evaluation is essential for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate
management, especially when these symptoms persist or worsen. Coombs testing
plays a crucial role in identifying and addressing underlying blood disorders.
