Thrombophilia: In the right circumstances an elevated DRVVT and a PTT-LA could help in the diagnosis of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Depending on the circumstances in which you had the pulmonary embolism plus elevation of the Lupus Anticoagulant test; can point out a higher risk of recurrence for venous thrombotic and embolic events. ...Read more
The time required for clot formation in blood plasma after activation and addition of platelet particles such as phospholipids. The test called PTT or aptt is used to assess the coagulation pathways or clotting pathways in your blood. A prolonged aptt can indicate a deficiency of a component of the clotting pathways, such as factors xii, xi, ix, viii, x, v, ...Read more

Not in early stages: Uncomplicated fatty liver is not likely to prolong PTT. However, left untreated it can progress to cirrhosis and that would affect PTT. If you are overweight, it is imperative that you lose weight. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Blood coagulation: The pt and PTT labs measure components of the blood clotting cascade. Abnormalities of one or the other or both lead towards the type of clotting abnormality (extrinsic or intrinsic pathway abnormality). Inr is the international normalized ratio, a derived number based on pt to normalize a variation done in different labs or with different testing systems. It is used in patients on coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
Two pathways: The process of coagulation follows two pathways, and pt measures the constituents of the extrinsic pathway and PTT measure the constituents of intrinsic pathway. There is a common final pathway for both sides. The tests help in diagnosing the type of coagulation abnormality, e.g., pt is prolonged on treatment with coumadin/warfarin and PTT is prolonged with heparin. ...Read more
