Starting in 2011 my blood work has shown I might be anemic. After many follow up tests I have been told I have hypercoagulation and need to take aspirin every day. I am having a hard time understanding the relationship between hypercoagulation and anemia or whether this is my actual issue. I do read there are more detailed tests about hypercoagulation but I do not think they put me through them. I have had multiple types of blood work and all GI tests. The GI tests were negative and these are the blood work items that I am out of range on : RBC 4.22,Hemoglobin 13.1,Hematocrit 38.1Protein-C 69. I also tested positivie for the MTHFR mutations. These are the
items that I tested high on: dPT 43.9,Anticardiolipin Ab,lgM,QN 18. I am normal for iron,b12 and folic acid. I guess I have a general distrust for some doctors just jumping to conclusions but does hypercoagulation seem plausible and if so, how does it create anemia?
