Amicar Blood And Coagulation Agent
Many: Muscle relaxants (i.e. Skelaxin, (metaxalone) flexeril), neuropathic agents (gabapentin, lyrica), opiates (morphine, hydrocodone), Lidocaine and other local anesthetics, tyelenol, along with many other drug classes do not thin the blood. Aspirin is the most commonly used pain killer that will act as a blood thinner. ...Read more
Not aware of any!: As such there is no known cancer fighting agent in our blood. But our immune system does play an important role and provides us some protection from developing cancer but it is not a complete protection and we are unable to measure this protective effect or factor, like you have wondered about. Perhaps in future we might be able to quantify such a immune protection factor(s). ...Read more

I have a coagulation disorder. Glazmann's thrombasthenia. Which foods should I avoid? I know some foods are natural blood thinners. Thanks!

The web is crawling with "pop" claims about "foods that interfere with platelet function" but these all seem to be reports of allergy that made platelets drop, rather than anything to worry you. ...Read more
My blood test :coagulation pt=12.9-control=13.5-ratio=.95-index=104.6(percent)-inr value=.95 so is that good or bad and is there relation to my liver?
Risk of bleeding: Bleeding time is no longer used as it is a poor predictor of bleeding risk, clotting time is too crude a test, prothrombin time tests the status of one branch of the coagulation pathway. Usually pt and PTT and platelet count are used as screening tests to assess risk of abnormal bleeding. ...Read more
No: And stay away from it.Get a more detailed answer ›
Same thing: Clotting and coagulation are used as synonims. A hematologist could beg to differ, but otherwise used as absolute synonims. ...Read more
Blood count: a complete blood count [CBC] measures red blood cell count, size and shape, which are proxy measurements for iron, Vitamin B-12 and folic acid, white blood cells which fight bacterial and viral infections, provide immunity, platelet cells which help with blood clotting. A coagulation screen detects problems with the production of proteins made in the liver that are required for clotting. ...Read more
