Natural Blood Clotting Agents
Homework: This is a homework question found on multiple discussion boards. The clotting factors are mostly zymogens that are activated by other members of the cascade. This doesn't lend itself to being explained in 400 words but you can find full discussions once you understand what a zymogen itself actually is.
Clotting factors: Your blood contains clotting factors that allow you to clot after your endometrial lining has been shed. THis prevents you from losing endless blood and controls the amount of bleeding you experience
Same thing: Clotting and coagulation are used as synonims. A hematologist could beg to differ, but otherwise used as absolute synonims.
Too many to list: The clotting disorder may result in poor clotting or excessive clotting. Both can be hereditary or acquired. Commonest lack of clotting disorder is induced by physicians prescribing so call blood thinners.
It's negligible: Alcohol interferes just a bit with platelet function but it's minor. If you haven't done grisly damage to your liver, your clotting factors will function normally. Wishing you the best -- hoping you can deal with the terrible challenges facing you. Be strong, have faith in the power of goodness, and work hard to recover and find real happiness.
Blood clot: If you are referring to blood test/ work-up, the results should be back within 2 weeks, in general. There are many factors that can make people to have blood clot- such as - post surgery, obesity, being on sterids or other medication- hormone/ ocp, testosterone, chemotherapy, cancer, hereditary problem/genetic mutation, etc,). Wait for the result and discuss in detail with your hematologist.
Yes: Do you mean a bleed or clot in or around the brain? Yes, they can occur without trauma. Blood thinners, coagulation disorders, strokes, tumors, aneurysms, certain vasculopathies, and vascular malformations can all cause intracranial bleeding without trauma.
I was recently told I have a blood clotting problem? How many types of clotting problems are there?
Many: Pretty large variety. You should ask your doctor about seeing a hematologist.
Blockage: When a fistula clots, which they unfortunately do, it can not be used for dialysis since there is no flow. We are pretty good at clearing up the clot ("declotting" the fistula) so it can be used again. Sometimes the fistulas are still working but lined with clot. As long as the access needles can be inserted and used this should be no problem. Typically clot forms when there is a blockage.See 1 more doctor answer
Blood clotting: There are proteins in our body such as thrombin, prothrombin, fibrin that play an important role in blood clotting, also blood paticles called platelets take part of coaguation. When the endothelium (inside lining of blood cell) is damage, there is a complex reaction that occurs between palelets, certains clotting factors which in turn prevent further blood loss from the damaged blood vessels.
Blood clotting: The best way to learn about this is wikipedia. There is no such thing as brief explanation. Of blood clotting.
Rephrase question: It's not clear what the issue is. Are you passing blood clots with your period?
