A reader wrote and a blog post was the easiest
tomorrow I have an appointment with a cardiologist, and I want to check for thick blood/coagulation if possible. What blood values would I need to test? Fibrinogen, Prothrombin Fragment 1+2, Thrombin/ AntiThrombin Complexes, Soluble Fibrin Monomer, and Platelet Activation. Is that right?
This has been part of my model of ME/CFS for a long time. It is a co-factor to things like the microbiome. A summary of the old treatment advice from Hemex and transcripts of talks with Dave Berg is here.
- Soluble Fibrin Monomer (SFM) – Normal Range 0-15mg/L
- Fibrinogen – Normal Range 200-300
- Prothrombin Fragment 1+2 test
- Antithrombin III (AT),
- Protein C,
- Protein S,
- APC Resistance
- Factor II level or the Prothrombin Gene Mutation
- SED (Below 5 is a concern per Berg)
Example of the Family Reports from Hemex
