In brief: Many
The most basic is the cbc, which will give you hemoglobin, hematocrit, white cell count, and platelet counts.
An additional important test is a reticulocyte count which gives you the production index of red cells. Your doctor can advise you further, based on your symptoms and history. Hope this helps.
