D-dimer has been elevated more than 10 times for over a year now. I’m only 24. It’s been as high as double the range. Never a DVT or PE. Cause?

In brief: The D Dimer test

is NON-SPECIFIC, That is to say the TEST ALONE without CLINICAL CORRELATION by your physician is of NO VALUE.
WHY are you having this test done???? That information is vital!
Hope this is helpful!
