A 50-year-old member asked:

If someone is on coumadin (warfarin) for a blood clot in the leg, which type of plasma protein is low?

Not necessarily: A clot can be caused by prolonged sitting, or an injury to the leg with totally normal clotting factors and plasma proteins. Certain clotting disorders may predispose to clotting or bleeding.
