Need lots more information. Could depending on what else is going on, meds you are taking. Discuss with the Dr who measured the cardiolipin test.

Not feasible based upon your post, to provide statistical "stroke and blood clots" risk data. You do not provide reasons for the tests, and additional studies may be required to pin down your diagnosis. It is best that you have a full discussion with the doctor who ordered the studies and decide how to handle the results.
