Find out if you’re at risk for a blood clot—before it’s too late

A blood clot—the cause of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms—can be fatal. In fact, about 100,000 people die from blood clots every year. Of those who don’t die from this condition, three in 10 will suffer another blood clot within 10 years. You don’t have to be one of these statistics, though. Determine your risk for a blood clot by measuring biomarkers of blood clotting activity, platelet health and other risk factors like inflammation, blood lipids—even serum viscosity. If the test results indicate a concern, you can work with your doctor to prevent this condition.

What do blood clot tests look for?

  • Measure blood clotting speed—important for anyone taking a medication that carries a risk for blood clots
  • Assesses the activity of fibrinogen, a protein that helps form blood clots
  • Detects abnormal clot risk factors—such as inflammation and clotting markers—as well as insulin resistance and cholesterol levels

Tests for Signs of Blood Clots

Determine your risk of blood clots and assess your circulatory health with these simple vitamin K1 tests and comprehensive stroke and thrombotic clot risk factor assessment panels. Once you know your risk, you can take steps to avoid deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and other complications.

Measures blood clotting activity levels

  • Save

Fibrinogen is a protein that is converted to fibrin, which helps form blood clots and is needed to prevent bleeding disorders. Increased fibrinogen activity is associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular events.

PT/PTT/INR blood test assesses how quickly a blood clot forms

  • Save

This test is useful if you are taking the anticoagulant medication Coumadin (warfarin). Prothrombin time (PT) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) are included in blood coagulation profiles.

  • Save

The blood test for D-dimer evaluates inappropriate blood clotting and is a good test to consider if you have had symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, such as leg pain, tenderness, swelling, labored breathing, coughing and lung-related chest pain.

Evaluates thrombotic risk (risk of abnormal blood clots)

  • Save

Concerned about clotting and strokes? This panel includes tests for inflammatory/clotting markers, insulin resistance markers, lipid markers, blood cells, kidney function and liver function as well as other markers included in a CBC/chemistry panel.

Measures viscosity in serum and evaluates hyperviscosity syndrome

  • Save

This test assesses for blood flow resistance, which can be increased by inflammation and several other disorders.

This test is used to evaluate levels of coagulant factor VIII.

  • Save

Blood testing for coagulant factor VIII is used in the diagnosis of hemophilia, an inherited disease characterized by a significantly decreased ability of the blood to form clots.

  • Save

Research shows that about 25% of individuals are resistant to the beneficial effects of aspirin. The Aspirinworks™ Urine Test can determine if you’re one of them, which is important if you take this over-the-counter medication to stave off a cardiac event.
