Most, but....: Elevated fibrinogen is usually caused by inflammation or infection. You need a CRP done. It can be elevated in diabetes, cancer, and several other conditions. Increased fibrinogen is a risk factor for heart disease. Oral estrogens in women, or obesity in males can also cause this. Too little history.
