    They take many samples for different things so that is not unusual.

    Don't let the worry take over - what will be will be and if it all comes back normal you have stressed yourself out for nothing.

    Three vials of blood is fairly standard.


    All the best.

    Agreed - three vials is standard for an FBC workup.

    They take multiple samples because different kinds of tests need different processes, so they can't use just one vial.

    I always worry about the results when I get blood tests, too.

    Further to the above: I had a full blood workup yesterday for my diabetes review. The three vials (plus a vial of wee) were taken yesterday at half past one.

    Via the wonders of the NHS and the Patient Access online service, I've just read my results less than 24 hours later Apart from the triglycerides, all normal. I think the urine test may take longer.
