Can drinking alcohol 3 days before Complete blood count exam skew results. Specifically for white &red blood cell count and platlets? Thank you

In brief: No

The results will be reliable and reflect what's really in your blood.
Even getting bad-drunk won't have a significant effect on your blood picture. If you drink, do it sensibly. Best wishes.
