Risk of blood clot: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, if the test was done correctly, it means that you are at risk for developing blood clots. You may wish to consult a hematologist for further evaluation and treatment.
