Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Usually very abnormal result like low hemoglobin or platelet count may require a confirmation CBC. Faulty blood draw, or clotted blood in the tube may not be suitable for accurate diagnosis. That will be another reason for redrawing the blood.
