Thrombotic risk refers to the increased likelihood of a dangerous blood clot, and these are all factors that can increase your risk. But there are also “invisible” risk factors – changes in the F5, F2 and MTHFR genes that each increase thrombotic risk.
Every year, more people die from a blood clotting problem than breast cancer and HIV combined. Thrombophilia is a condition where the blood has an increased tendency to form clots, and many people suffer from this condition due to genetic variation (inherited thrombophilia). This genetic analysis determines if you have inherited mutations in your F5, F2 and MTHFR genes that can significantly increase your risk of dangerous blood clots. By understanding your genetic risk, you can make necessary health and lifestyle changes (e.g. increasing physical activity) to help decrease your risk of abnormal blood clots.
