If my antiphosplippid anti body test was clear does that mean I don't have any blood clotting disorder? Or is it still possible to have one?

What it really means is that we aren't going to give you treatment to make your blood less coagulable since this doesn't improve your odds. ...Read more

My dad was diagnosed with two types of facial neralgia and a few different blood clotting disorders. I don't have nething he has but cld I get it later?

Some diseases can have neuralgias (shingles, diabetes, etc), so be aware of any risks for them. Clotting disorders, however, are often inherited, and some may not manifest right away. If his clotting problems are not due to meds, then you should talk witha physician to fully assess your risk. ...Read more
