      I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

      Determination D-Dimer.

      d-dimer thrombosis test is not available from Blood Values Test,

      In patients with acute chest pain and shortness of breath, an elevated value of D-dimer without cardiac symptoms indicates a pulmonary embolism.

      In case of such complaints, always go to the doctor or call 112.

      Elevated d-dimers in blood indicate blood clots

      D-dimer is a compound derived from a blood clot and is only present in the blood if a clot is or has been present. D-dimer is released when the blood clot is broken down. A blood clot consists of a network of fibrin threads (clotting proteins). The fibrin network is broken down with the help of plasmin (a protein) in which the clot dissolves and is removed. One of the breakdown products is D-dimer, which is produced only when a fibrin network is broken down. The amount of D-dimer in blood is always very low, except when there is a clot in the blood that, at that time, is being broken down

      The D-dimer test is generally used to detect the presence a blood clot in the bloodstream. These blood clots can occur in conditions associated with a (temporary) increased blood clotting tendency that can manifest as, for example:

      deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in which a clot forms in a leg veinlong embolism
      (LE) in which a clot forms in the lungsdiffuse
      intravascular coagulation (DIS), in which clots and bleeding occurs throughout the bodyMost often

      the clots occur in the veins of the body. However, when they form in the arteries (arteri and eumln) that are so important for oxygen transport, the blood supply can be blocked to crucial organs such as the kidneys, brain or heart. This can cause permanent damage to the organ (infarction) and can even lead to complete organ failure.

      The D-dimer test is especially useful if the doctor thinks that something other than an en DVT and or en LE and is causing the symptoms. A negative test result can then confirm this thought with a negative test result it is very unlikely that the patient's symptoms are caused by a blood clot in the bloodstream. It is a quick and for the patient little burdensome test to exclude an abnormal or excessive clotting. The D-dimer test is usually performed in combination with imaging techniques (bone echo, and CT scan of the lung) and other laboratory tests.

      What does the result mean?

      A normal D-dimer value means that blood clots are unlikely to be present in the body. A positive D-dimer test indicates that there is an unusually high level of breakdown products of a fibrin network in the body. The doctor then knows that increased clotting activity (thrombosis) is present, where breakdown of this clot has taken place. However, the place in the body where this has taken place and the cause is then still unknown. The increased D-dimer can be caused by deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (LE) and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIS), but can also be the result of surgery, an injury, an infection, a disease of the liver or kidney, pregnancy and diseases in the pregnancy such as preeclampsia, cardiovascular diseases and cancer..This test can be offered because of shelf life and not by blood test.







      If you absolutely need the test, you can take blood samples directly to our laboratory in Mönchengladbach (30 km from Roermond).

      The test is also available (at various places) for a few euros as a quick test.
