I think a blood test for Hughes Syndrom is well worth checking though. That could make sense with the IV saline, i would guesss that would have an effect on thinning the blood in a more dramatic way than just drinking salt water, else people would just do that. Off to the GP again…..
Hi Diamondcut, I’m so disappointed in what it takes to get a diagnosis of Hughes…You must have had a clot AND positive results at least twice. Our blood thickening can change over time, so while waiting for a diagnosis, we could easily have a stroke. Jeez. Did you see my MTHFR video? I recommend a comprehensive panel for thrombotic risk. You can also be tested for the most common inherited blood thickening disorders (MTHFR gene, Factor 2, Factor V Leiden, etc). I highly recommend that! 😉
